Calm and pleasant surroundings and very good food produced from the owners. Salads and cheese are delicious and fresh. Try the Antikristo lamp and grilled chicken chops. Very friendly people and fast service. The best choice when you want to avoid the center of Chania.

We really enjoyed our early dinner. All food was great, the staka was exceptional (delicious goat butter mixed with flour). This is a simple cretan place serving traditional dishes made of local meat (lamb and pork) and vegetables. Recommended!

The best staka cream we found on Crete, very good local meat and authentic Cretan cuisine. Hospitality was not to forget and we are pleased with all attention they gave to us. We could now say that we have been on Crete. Great find.

The tavern is located in the traditional unspoiled village of Therisos, a place that takes you back in time. The host is so hospitable and humble yet he represents the true Cretan culture and spirit. He will welcome you a bottle of cold tsikoudia. The...More

The dishes are traditional cretan and are pretty tasteful. However, the service is sometimes a little bit slow

We were advised to visit Theriso mostly for its good meat food and it's beautiful canyon. After our visit at Theriso canyon and Antartis tavern I confirm that both are true. The hosts of the tavern welcomed us with cold raki and were very helpful...More

George is the best host ever. The food is excellent and the service authentic. A must visit restaurant for those that they want to taste the real Cretan cuisine. Many thanks George, we had a great time.
