Me and my partner (alahor) enjoyed a delicious meal here in a homely and very welcoming atmosphere! We will definitely be coming back here on our next visit to Crete! Spiros and Debbie are wonderful hosts and a pleasure to be around. Highly recommend this restaurant. A true Cretan experience! Thank you very much!

Worth walking up the hill! Everything just tasted gorgeous and he is such a good host. We had a couple of very long lunches with great company in a great atmosphere.

Really enjoyed our visit. Spyros was friendly and made the meal an experience. Would love to go back for the evening when we visit this year. The food was really great. And the location was beautiful. Thanks Spyros.

The atmosphere was very nice and beautiful! It was nice and warm. There was a very big choice you could order. Debby and Spiros are very nice people. We recommend this restaurant to everyone who like to eat the original, greek homemade food and taste it in original way!
