We travelled to this place from after visiting Knossos palace due to its high ranking. We were not disappointed! The owner is super polite and friendly, the service is extremely quick and the food is great (try musaka!!!) and reasonably priced. Moreover, it is not that touristic and has relaxing local charm.

If you want to have the best fersh fish in Kokini hani, this is the right adress. It is not expensive, the service is more than perfect and the owner is always there to make sure that you will never leave before you had a Raki with him. Yamas.

This was a great meal. It was very reasonably priced and the portion size was huge. I had gyros which were great. They serve draught Fix lager in iced glasses, which is amazing. The owner was a good laugh and authentic. He didn't try to give us the cheesy patter for tourists. They have bi-fold doors and leave the front... More
