“This is a great place to go if you want to sample traditional Cretan food. The menu caters for all tastes so if you want local and more western in the same party then you’ll be fine here. Great service with extras such as fruit and Raki thrown in at the end. Reasonable prices and overall good value for money. Plenty of parking but it does get busy later in the evening so going earlier is better if you can.” –  CJ B (as seen on tripadvisor.com)
