This restaurant is an absolute gem. The traditional Cretan food is at its most sublime. It's also in the vanguard as far as new trends are concerned. Among the other many delicious things this year we had seaweed salad. (This is not like the Welsh...More

Good food, and also offer very nice bottles of local wine. Giant beans and meatballs are a good way to start, then have something from the list of daily specials. Nice cosmopolitan friendly atmosphere on the large terrace.

Really disappointing: undercooked fried potatatoes, just acceptable fish. But the worst was the complete disorganization: some of the table got their fish, while the others where still waiting.

Really good food and great service. We came here several times during our stay in Kountora. Takes you ten minutes by Carl to get here from Paleochora. Well worth the trip.

We picked this B&B just driving along the road out of town. So glad we did. Stayed 2 nights and ate at the restaurant both nights. The room was perfectly clean, well appointed with a kitchenette and even came with complimentary raki. The grounds are...More

We eat here a couple of times. Great home cooked food (hot the school meals you find in other restaurants) and lovely people who run the restaurant. Recommend going here more than once. I'd go there again if in Paleochora on another vacation.
