Visited last summer, one of the best vegetarian restaurants I've seen so far. Very interesting menu and the right size !

Busy place down the street just away from Sandy Beach. Definitely a traveller influence to the restaurant, with the decor, music and menu all indicating worldwide influences. The menu is outstanding in any case, but especially so as it goes beyond the classic Greek staples vegetarians may find their options limited in Paleochora and Crete in general. The veg moussaka...

We met a Scottish couple on a walk who recommended this as definitely to be tried. So we did that evening and we're not disappointed. Although meat eaters we enjoy vegetarian food as well. The huge menu and fantastic range of flavours distinguish this restaurant. One.of the best soups we've ever tried and given its vegetable base absolutely extraordinary in... More

Very fun place to sit in, and great food that doesn't follow the standard Cretan formula. The menu is international vegetarian: Thai, Mexican, Chinese, Greek... we ordered 3 main dishes, and all were good- not amazing perhaps, but certainly good. If you're vegetarian and don't want to feel like a second class citizen, this is an easy choice.

Greece is usually good for vegetarians and even vegans. But it's great to find a veggie restaurant in case we get fed up with Briam (which sometimes has cheese on it so no good for vegans) or Gemista. Salads are great here. Really enjoyed the moussaka too. House wines a bit ... well they're cheap at least! If you want... More

This place goes from strength to strength. The salads are inventive and delicious, great for lunch. The main dishes range from traditional Greek cooking to Thai or Indian curry. Service is spot on, efficient but more importantly friendly and helpful. My special recommendations would be the spinach and cranberry salad, avocado with beetroot dip then the Musaman curry. Great idea... More

We go to Paleochora almost annually. We love this restaurant and ate there 5 of the 7 nights we stayed. Friendly service, good quality and daily menu that changes.

As a confirmed carnivore i was more than pleasantly surprised by the variety, flavours and textures. In fact so pleased that we went there again. A very varied menu ranging from Greek to Asian to Indian and points of the compass between. Beautifully cooked and served by friendly staff, you must check this one out.
