If you are ever on the Zagora region of Greece, this is a must. Hike around and see the stone bridges, then take your appetite to Vassily's restaurant. Every thing was beyond delicious. Golden chanterelles as a pickled appetizer, 5 mushrooms on pasta ;the Shitakes raised by the owner and chef. Black trumpets- chewy and meaty. Lemony boletes in cream... More

Right or wrong, the entry of animal pets in restaurants is not allowed BY LAW in most countries around the globe. In Greece, there is a fine of 500-2000€ for non-compliance - the only exception allowed are guide- dogs for the visually impaired. We informed you very politely that dogs are not allowed in the dining room but you chose... More

What an incredible place, for mushroom-lovers and not only! The place was warm and welcoming. We found great difficulty in deciding what to eat, since there are so many intriguing choices! Highly recommended!

Warm and cozy atmosphere, delicious dishes and friendly stuff. The only thing that lacked of was variety of dishes ( only on main dishes ). Moreover the response time between us asking for the check and them bringing it to our table was fair disappointing. On the other side this is a situation that may occur to anyone. The quality...

Both of us love mushrooms, so we had to try this restaurant with all the great reviews it has. Food was very tasty, but the highlight was the mushroom risotto. The only downside was that portions are quite small and prices very high for the area. Friendly service! Make sure to book a table if you visit during the high... More

This was not just a meal it was an experience! Fell in love with the owners immediately, they greeted us with a welcoming smile and made us feel like relatives. The food is superior and mainly mushroom oriented flavors (home grown mushrooms) take you in a culinary journey you never want it to end...Will definitely visit again loved the food... More

Unique restaurant with cozy, romantic atmosphere specializing in Gourmet Mushrooms. Taste more than twenty different wild mushrooms through the year cooked in unique combinations. Plenty of vegetarian dishes as well as excellent local meats from this mountainous region. Inspired by local and international cuisines, this restaurant also offers an excellent wine list representative of the best Greek vineyards. Cap off your meal with delicious homemade desserts and the chef's own liquors made with local wild fruits.
