Restaurant details
Reviewed 24 September 2017

This is a traditional roadside Taverna which can cater for large parties. It is apparently a venue used by the locals to celebrate their birthdays, christenings, etc. and was decorated with pink ribbons and streamers when we went for just such a recent event. The food is very good traditional Greek and there is a covered verandah at the front with great elevated views over the countryside and sea, with windows to let in any breeze, so it's one to visit for lunch when you are exploring the area, or in the evening if you fancy somewhere away from the beach. It takes 15-20 minutes to walk up to it and it's worth it for the warm welcome from George and his son when you get there. And remember it's down hill all the way back! We were there this year for lunch and had a variety of starters shared between us - decent portions - including Giant Beans, fried small fish (anchovies and sardines), Meatballs, and Zuccini and Cheese Balls all of which were very tasty. Our 'come again' was a mini Irish Coffee. Yummy!

We visited here twice on our trip to crete, we met George who was very helpful and chatty and also some other members of his family who were very welcoming too. The food was beautiful - try the chicken korma special its the best ! The views are wonderful and We were also given complimentary shots and a cake they had homemade that day - would definitely come back here.

We visited this restaurant twice for dinner this week. Since it is off season we where unsure what to expect as their are not that many tourists around Agia Pelagia area. We where greeted and welcomed by the passionate owner and his lovely wife running the kitchen. We asked for recommendations and George was happy to advise us. Both times we got a lot of attention and the taste of the food was wonderful. Only downside the portions are quite large, pricing is friendly too. @ George, warm greetings and thanks from Lars and Geert (guys staying at Nymphes)
