It was a shame that such a place had so average food. Although the staff is good the food seems to be for people that they come only once. Meaning well... I might not see you again so eat what I give you. Most of the food was eaten by the fish and ducks in the lake. We did not... More

I was traveling with a friend who has been coming to Zaros for the last eight summers on business- our presence here was one of royalty. I was amazed how the family greeted us and treated us to so much amazing food. A little pricey, yes, but well worth it.

What a lovely evening at this great restaurant. Famous trout farm with a restaurant on site. You can go up and see the trout pools that the local river runs through. The menu has lots of great options with Greek and international foods. Perfect lamb chops, gorgeous salad, some great starter options and some of our group had the fresh... More

Over rated, over priced, very ordinary. Average wine, lousy service. The decent reviews here are not too be trusted. Much better trout can be bought in supermarkets back home!

We thank you for your criticism and much less as well is the only criticism you have entered in TripAdvisor. This shows something.. Now... Accustomed as to what? We are the unique trout farm across the Crete and our position at the foot of Psyloreitis makes us unique and not ordinary. The quality we offer is directly associate with our... More

It was a little bit too expensive and without character. Nice fish tank though, but the fish itself was just too pricey.

Nice artificial lake with cool animals (ducks, birds, trouts, turtles, dragonflies). Would suggest the »keepers« of the place to clean the lake more often, to better maintain the facilities of the lake surrounding, such a path, benches, houses. It is a really nice place and it is a shame to see it in a state like it is. Parking could... More

The staff wasn't very talkative, which bummed me. Usually they just put the plate down in front of you and walk off straight away. That attitude started changing a bit during the week, but it still wasn't very cozy. The food was okay. It wasn't exactly special, but it was nice. It was the closest restaurant near us, so we've...
