We visited when they had 2 local musicians. This was an interesting experience as they began playing at 9.0pm and were still going when we left at 11.15pm. This was not background music but more like a concert. Although fascinating as very different an hour...More

Charming taverna in a quiet little track in Vamos. Delicious food but quite a small menu. Have visited before and i think the quality has improved a lot. Friendly service, lots of cats and normally has an art gallery but didnt this time.

Good atmosfere, decent tastes, interesting setting. A little bit overpriced I guess. No locals of course. I suppose it is quite expensive for them. Anyway, it is a place that you might find some interesting local flavors blended with touristic aristocracy.

We walked to Vamos from Gavalochori and finally located this recommended taverna. It was well worth it. Quirky and interesting, beautiful food lovingly prepared and presented. A little gem.

Delightful friendly restaurant in a lovely traditional setting, usually very busy. unusually, you have to fill in a menu sheet which I thought was quite good. Plenty of choices and there were many dishes different from the taverna 'norm'. On the whole the food was...More

Wonderful produce beautifully prepared and cooked. Cretan classics with a slight difference, extremely fresh and full flavoured, excellent use of herbs and seasoning. We really enjoyed the very aromatic baked goat, and the stuffed onions were delicious as was the fennel pie. Helpful friendly service...More

Xasomeri means “a waste of time” in Greek. It is in the heart of the old neighbourhood of Vamos,a small but exceptional venue,full of surprises!The cuisine is plentiful and one of the tastiest in all of Apokoronas. The menu is often changing, but it’s based on the Mediterranean cuisine. The sweets are handmade, and the raki is made from the elegant grape varietals “malvazia” and “moschato".
