It is a good thing we were adviced to use the services nextdoor. Otherwise we never would have found it. To put it short: we felt wellcomed, met friendly and fast service. Children had some toys to keep them happy. Starters: eggplant, mushrooms, tzaziki, potatoes- all excellent. Red wine (Merlot) super. Children loved their chicken gyros. Definitely coming back. This place is a hidden secret, where the fresh food and service are in the centre.

Placed in small street away from noise. Furniture with charm . Good service. Greek salad in this place was average, octopus small and overgrilled.

This mini restaurant is hidden behind the Rimondi fountain and that's not without a reason. Everybody would to like have dinner here. The food is very good, the staff is super friendly and helpful. Price is ok too.
I wish we would have found this earlier and not in one of our last nights in Crete.

Even though it was busy, after waiting for some 5 mins, we could sit outside. Friendly helpful staff, but if its the lamb you want, get up early because this sells out quickly. So we settled for some gyros and local cretan spicy sausages and some side dishes. After some complementary entry dish and grilled soft cheese with fruits, we enjoyed cretan sausages, with spicy mustard. Super fresh and definitely freshly prepared locally. Then gyros, was so much food, so good, chicken was roasted to perfection, still moist, even though there were crispy bits. Tzatziki was super flavour. Prices are really good for quality and amount of food you get. We had white wine, super flavour. Definitely recommend this place. But for lamb get there earlier.
