Yiannis cooks great and authentic Cretan food. Theservice is friendly and atmosphere is lovely in the small restaurant. We ate there three times during our short trip in Mirtos and liked all we ate. -- Yiannis valmistaa todella maukasta ja autenttista kreetalaista ruokaa. Palvelu on ystävällistä ja ravintolan ilmapiiri on rauhallisen tunnelmallinen. Söimme ravintolassa kolme kertaa lyhyen Mirtosin lomamme aikana... More

Superb, homecooked food by chef Yiannis, delcious wine and raki, in a quiet back-street under vines, with the friendliest service you can imagine. Yiannis also runs cookery lessons, so you can try your hand at his delicious recipes when you get home.

The most great things with this restaurant were its place in a matter of atmosphere and the polite stuff. However the disadvantages were: small portions of dishes, too expensive as of the provided quality of food that offer to clients and the order form became receipt which means tax evasion.

Nice scenery, music provided by Spotify free (...) food was ok but rather overpriced compared to other tavernas in Greece. We had two salads and saganaki + two beers and we had to pay € 29,-

Restaurant Katerina has generally good food but you may have to wait a bit for it to come as there is only the owner cooking in a pretty small kitchen. The owner does trips in to the local hills to collect herbs some afternoons for three or four people. You have to pay for this but it does mean you... More

We visited here on 11th June and were warmly greeted by both the waitress and the chef/owner who told us all the specialties that he had that evening. We ate saganakiand salad as well as rabbit stifado and snails. I have to say, everything was delicious. A carafe of Cretan red finished everything off beautifully. It was a pleasure speaking...

This restaurant was as welcoming as your own home, furnished like a private living/dining room, and with truly excellent food prepared with herbs the owners themselves gather in the mountains.

Popped by by accident on easter Sunday. Had the most amazing roast lamb I have probably ever had. Nice bread and house wine too. Compared to other places we've been on crete and given the high quality of the food, we'd say it was very good value. It is also in a peaceful tree lined setting- ideal for lunches. Oh,... More
