Been here a couple of times on our week long break in Crete. 1st time when we arrived & had the lamb kleftico, which was stunning, the dakos is the best I've had & the moussaka is truly epic, very traditional with friendly service & very tolerant of us non bilingual brits!

We stayed in episkopi for a week and ate at Kactus restaurant on our first and last nights. The food was very reasonably priced, the terrace very comfortable to sit with friends, and the food was absolutely delicious. The lamb dish I had was the best lamb I have ever tasted. Would not hesitate to recommend Kactus restaurant.
