I ate the worst Greek salad in the whole Crete, which, by the way, was the most expensive of all of them. There were mostly cheaper ingredients. Anyway, the staff was friendly.

We came here as a family party of 7 for lunch. The staff were super friendly and the food was delicious. The adults had octopus, Cretan chips and dips, lamb, souvlaki and kebabs and the kids had US burgers; filling and tasty. We got treated...a bowl each of Cretan postre de La Casa and a glass of raki. Reasonably priced in a relaxed shady area near Parc El Greco. Recommended.More

We were there for lunch with family and friends and had ordered different dishes, from spare ribs to traditional Greek food. It was very tasty, the portions were large. The atmosphere is awsome and staff is super nice and helpful. The prices are about average,...which was a nice surprise. The only thing that fell a bit short is their coffee which I hope they will resolve soon :)More

Had hight expectations however the chicken Souvlaki came out raw. Sent it back and received a new meal however received no apology from the front of house manager. I would have expected a free meal and personal apology. Hopefully I do not get food poisoning...from the food.More

A must try are the BbQ ribs and the chicken wings. Their homemade quesadillas and guacamole are to die for!
