We discovered this beautiful outdoor "cafe" or restaurant on the old mountain highway en route to the Samaria Gorge, & we were lost, having been unable to connect with the newer highway. This road is actually the "scenic" route which finally intersects the new highway. A good driving rule in Greece: always carry a good old-fashioned, hand-held compass in case your GPS fails! This cafe area is huge with two levels & located on the side of a large creek that is absolutely beautiful. Ducks were roaming the winding span of the water, quacking & fluttering in the water, & you could really relax & enjoy your food under the shade of the magnificent trees that surrounds the lower dining area. The menu offers a variety of dishes, but my wife & I selected spaghetti & goat meatballs (delicious) & chicken with basil, garlic, & mozzarella cheese. There were fantastic salads that we did not have time to sample, along with cocktails from a beautiful bar that we dared not sample due to rather immediate need to get back to the road. If I return to Crete, I will make it a priority to eat @ this roadside cafe. "Fantastic!"
