“A Charming Mountain-Road Outdoor Cafe!”
Review of Taverna Progoulis

Taverna Progoulis
Ranked #1 of 3 Restaurants in Vryses
Restaurant details
Reviewed 20 September 2017 via mobile

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!"

Seating overlooking a small river with ducks under the trees. Polite staff but not much more. They are just about aware of the menu. Chicken on the spit, souvlaki, lamb on the spit were quite good. No complaints but would be thrilled to go back.

Located in the heart of the village, right next to a small river with a green roof of green trees. The food is good and the service is excellent!

My family who live in Crete found out about this restaurant. A true locals taverna. Beautifully perched under high trees by the side of a shallow river. We shared the chicken on the spit with salad etc. You know it's great chicken when no condiments where needed, chicken perfectly cooked - moist & perfectly seasoned. A great find.
