A bit of walk up the hill from the main road but worth the walk for the food and service! We only had a main each but still received a complimentary dessert and drink.

Had an amazing cretan dinner. Owners recommendation turned out very good even for our kids. Lovely home made red wine and raki with honey. As it is a small family run restaurant with fresh food, service is slower but totally worth the wait.

Cozy, family and traditional restaurant with delicious and filling portions, every day specialties. We serve the best homemade wine, raki and rakomelo(raki with honey). We only use our certified olive oil to cook. Hearty service ("Philoxenia") and fair prices. Credit cards accepted. Accessibility to disabled. If you think of celebrating birthday or other events, Amethystos can prepare one completely unforgettable evening. Daily open from 10.00 until closing.
