What a wonderful little Greek taverna. The owner is visible and makes every customer feel welcome, explaining the menu and going the extra mile. The pictures on the menu actually depict the dishes, unlike most restaurants. The food was delicious, we had chunks of bread...with oil and herbs to dip, olives and olive tapenade. Then I opted for the baklava and wasn’t disappointed, it was a hefty slice! My husband had the gyros which was plentiful and our teen son had toastie and fries. We all cleared our plates! A lovely little restaurant allowing you to watch the world go by in the square whilst dining.More

Waitress was not very friendly, must have had an off day. Owner on the other hand was much more hospitable. Starter was good. Main dish, to much fat on the meat and no tzatiki was served with the gyros, which made the dish very dry....To my opinio, this restaurant is with a score over 4.5 much overrated.More

We had sunday roast lunch here at this family owned and operated greek family tavern. Amazing roasted food out of the stone oven. Friendly staff waiting on you with good food and drinks. Nice view on the square as well whilst seating in the shade....Must try. Close to Hersonissos in the mountains.More

I LOVE LITHOS! If I could give my experience 10 stars, I would. When my sister and I first entered the town square, Lithos attracted us instantly. As we approached the restaurant, we were immediately greeted by the owner, Mr. Nikos. He treated my sister...and I as if we were family, and his son and daughter, who also work at the restaurant, did the same. We asked for recommendations, and we were not disappointed. I love Greek food generally, but this moussaka was the best recipe I have ever tasted. I was so excited to try it when it came out, that I forgot to take a picture (see the bites I had to take before remembering that I wanted to document this delicious meal). My sister tried the stuffed peppers and tomatoes, which was also delightful. The experience was so wonderful that when we found out Cretan Night - with live music and dancing - would be later that week, we knew we had to return. I am so grateful for the experience, as it truly made me feel at home in Greece. Thank you Lithos!More
