We ate at Alexandros many times during our stay . The food was fab . Mamas meat balls are the best we have ever eaten. We would definitely return on our next visit to Crete. Service very good. Alexandros and family are very friendly and a pleasure to chat with, we enjoyed their company.

The food is homemade and cooked fresh; there are always a big selection of traditional Cretan dishes on the menu. Each year more items are added (try the Kleftiko it's... More

Lovely people and lovely food. A family owned place and Alexandros is a brilliant host, the same can be said for his wife. The food was always perfect and every night a dessert and Raki (ask for the honey raki) were on the house. We were always made to feel welcome and service was excellent and very relaxed :)
