Passing back through this village and after come back off the mountains visiting the cave of Zeus, the owner nikos came over and had a chat and is the 1st person in all the places I've been to show us how his food is prepared, cooked and how clean all the kitchen/ restaurant was. His olive oil is made by him from his own trees, the bread is made in a small bakery the other side of the square and it was the best olive oil and bread I've ever tried. All his meat and potatoes are cooked in the Cretan wood oven and it was amazing, nikos is a quality man and you will receive a superb service from him and his team. Couldn't recommend this place enough, one of the best places I've eaten.

Me and my partner stumbled upon mochos whilst exploring Crete , we decided to stop for lunch at taverna lithos and upon meeting and talking to Nikos we new it was going to be brilliant food , everything on the menu is grown by Nikos and his family (his olive oil is beautiful we even brought some home)
When our food arrived it was beautiful even if it was just a dinner time snack!
That evening we went back with our friends for a drink , Nikos then joined us he spent time getting to know us and even told us a few jokes! He then told us about the Greek night in the square every Wednesday which we decided to go to , the Greek night was amazing and the food was to die for, the dancers at the Greek night get paid by the restraunts and all money goes to helping OAPS in the winter months!
Would definitely go back to Crete even if just to visit taverna lithos again!

This was easily the best restaurant we visited in the area in a and around hersonissos. Well worth the trip up the hill to this lovely traditional Greek village, we were close to the end of our trip when we discovered it and it provided welcome relief to the very touristy hersonissos. The owner is very friendly as were the other staff, the food delicious and as others have said on here the olive oil was amazing, we had a Greek person in our party and he also thought all was very good indeed. The locals were out eating and drinking in the the square and talking in the streets, young and old playing there instruments and singing outside a raki bar just of the square. Some of the authentic traditional Greece I had hoped to see in Crete not the touristy Rubbish down by the sea. Brilliant!
