We went here on a recommendation, after we found it, ordered the meals of the day and loved them! The owners were very friendly to us, the house wine was good. I will definitely come back the next time we are in Crete!

Ifigenia is a vegetarian restaurant and guesthouse near Plakias. From Plakias it is just over a five minute drive, taking the furthest right turn option at the junction where the other options head towards Lefkogia or Mirthios. Without neighbours, Ifigenia has the feel of being...More
