Lovely setting under the trees with friendly service and delicious food. Some inside seating if preferred but plenty of seating in the garden. Very moderately priced and good selection of local dishes all freshly cooked to order. Off the beaten track but just opposite the...More

This restaurant is superb. The food is authentic, homemade, outrageously fresh Cretan fare. It is by far the best establishment in a very commercial and busy town. The atmosphere in the outdoor garden dining area is spectacular, and I ate here almost every night for...More

Good cretan tavern. Quite garden, warm ambient, not fast service but pretty nice. Usual traditional dishes, salads, meats, few fish. Coq au vin above the average. Excellent tzatziki: over the top. Price below the line. Go!

Outdoor seating under trees, very intimate. Excellent lamb chops and Salad of the season. This restaurant has just one red wine, and it was a perfect fit to the food and the surroundings.

Paleochora is a very remote fishing village on the south part of Crete. During summer there are allot of choices for food. I was there on January, and the choices are very limited. The only place that offers real local cuisine during the winter is...More

This is a 'real' Cretan taverna with an excellent range of genuine Cretan cuisine. The location is lovely, in a beautiful and atmospheric garden where you really feel as though you're having the real Greek experience. Prices are low, many local people eat here. I...More
