We visited this lovely restaurant twice on our break in Kato Stalos. We have been here a few times before and were not disappointed! The food is exceptional, very traditional and the service is friendly and efficient. Easily found once you know the way, second on the left after the big church up tge hill, well worth the effort. Their own wine is delicious and we were lucky enough to taste some special ones from their cellar! Mum is the chef, a very skilled cook and a lovely lady.. Her daughter served us, with good suggestions of what to try. Highly recommended!

This place Is a little off the beaten track and not well signed however it is well worth the uphill 10 min walk from the main road for the wonderful service we received and really lovely food. We ordered grilled feta with the local speciality breads and it was really delicious. Between us we had two of the rabbit, one lamb and one chicken in tomato with raisins, all of the food was really tasty. The homemade wine also great and so reasonably priced. We were then given complimentary ice cream and Raki homemade by the lady who served us parents. A lovely end to a great experience.

A really nice restauran with excellent cretan traditional dishes, the best food we ate in our trip and with the best wine ever. We went two times and both times the food was something else. Really a different taste from everything else we ate in the supposed traditional restaurants.
