Maybe we were early in the season (28/06/18) ?? Maybe we were early for dinner 8.30pm ?? Maybe it was expensive by taxi from our hotel €20 one way ?? When we arrived we were the first and last customers of the night but so what I hear you say ! Something has gone horribly wrong since the reviews of summer 2017 .I even got up leaving my wife at the table to look at the sign above the door to check we had the right place.All the specials were off the menu and the remainder was fried inedible food . The white wine tasted like perfectly good grapes had gone from the barrel to a cardboard box then a vinegar pickle jar . We changed to rose which was equally as bad . While eating dinner a stray cat from the street caught a mouse under our table. After the screams of the dying mouse stopped the owner of the restaurant kicked the cat so hard it dropped the dead mouse an ran out . The owner then picked it up , showed it to us and threw it out the front door . The food was terrible as was the service . The rest was an adventure you can’t make up.

I visited this very nice tavern and had a great time. The dishes are really delicious made by local products.the price for the dices was low especially compared to the quality ( 5 euros per dish).
If you ever go to lasithi I am sure that you should visit this restaurant and taste the traditional Cretan food!!!!!

Our friends from Krousta took us to this taverna 10 days ago for dinner and we loved it! A real taverna when locals meet. The food was delicious ! We had so much to eat : dados; local macaroni with cheese, pork souvlaki, lamb and pork chops, salad, desserts.Everything was just perfect. Do not expect a 3* Michelin restaurant but if you love Crete and authentic simple good food, this is the place to go.

We drove there in the evening and experienced a cheery welcome, wonderful food ( try the pork chop) and a relaxing dinner.

Ask Stavrakakis and his wife for their recommendations and feast on goat in wine sauce (amazing) and an alternative to stuffed vine leaves - stuffed zucchini flowers. Tiny taverna run by a lovely family. Extremely good value and a third of the price of a meal in the more touristy Elounda. View on the drive up to the village of Kroustas is beautiful too.
