...when you are there !
We were sent by Marko from Mourtzanakis ecoresidence, he booked for us by phone and even late we got the best simple and nice welcome.
We tasted tzadziki, moussaka and pork souvlakis, they were more than commendable.
They offered us at the end a large yogurt with amarenas topping.
Then the host gave to each table clementines from his own garden, lovely !

March- most of the places closed- in the evening we stop at this place as it was full of local people.

Table organised immediately and the menu was presented to us. Everything cooked fresh by the family - mama and papa do the food, son and daughter serve it. As we were tired ordered some vegetarian salad and fried fish. WOW! Wine was good took some also for home...and as the bill came...we thought it is wrong because it was to cheap.

In the meantime we've been 2 more times there ad we discovered that they have daily other home made dishes, both vegetarian and with meat. Just great! Best lamb i ever had in a restaurant! Mama is just a great cook!

We will for sure visit them again!

I don't know how is it during the high season there, but as i saw the tavern full with locals, i bet they do a great job!

The place is not directly on the beach, so maybe it doesn't look attractive at the first view. But just go there, by the prices they charge you can't do anything wrong :)

We thank the family for all the good moments we had and will still have there!

Efcharistó!

Not a 'by-the-beach' restaurant and thank God for that. Great simple food, friendly atmosphere. Try the octopus and the stuffed vegetables.

I have been going to fill my gastronomical desires at Nikolas taverna several times. Even I am sending all our guests to eat there where neither one has ever mentioned something negative. Everybody loved the food of Vangelis, the chef. Vangelis is from Achlada and a cook where all the recipes of the old generations are being served in his menu. Don't not miss, try Nikolas and remember the real Cretan home made cuisine.
