We visited Antartis Taverna and it was very nice and cool environment especially for the summer..A very nice table was waiting for us and the hospitality of the owners was very good.Do try the famous Cretan Antikristo that is slowly cooked with wood and stones on low fire...

My girlfriend and I have been here our last night in Crete. The tavern is located in a really small town (about 20 houses) on a mountain. The place itself is awful, forget hygiene and a normal service. What really concerned us is that, when we decided to go there for dinner was because we took a look at the... More

First of all, we don't charge any kind of water and specially tap water. We never did that before and we will not do it. The water is free here as much as you can drink! Second, we don't have salty cheese cake in our menu and we will not put it. Third and last thing is that we don't... More

The tavern is located in the traditional unspoiled village of Therisos, a place that takes you back in time. The host is so hospitable and humble yet he represents the true Cretan culture and spirit. He will welcome you a bottle of cold tsikoudia. The food is delicious and so authentic, and I have to say that we had the... More

Val and I are permanent residents here on Crete, in this village ! Proprietor Nikos, and family, personal friends.So my assessment some might think biased. Not a bit. There is such a choice of good quality Tavernas here, everybody has to be on their toes, competition is stiff. The village is famed for its meat. If you want fish, stay... More

The dishes are traditional cretan and are pretty tasteful. However, the service is sometimes a little bit slow

We were advised to visit Theriso mostly for its good meat food and it's beautiful canyon. After our visit at Theriso canyon and Antartis tavern I confirm that both are true. The hosts of the tavern welcomed us with cold raki and were very helpful on what to order as we were not familiar with the Cretan cuisine. We had... More

George is the best host ever. The food is excellent and the service authentic. A must visit restaurant for those that they want to taste the real Cretan cuisine. Many thanks George, we had a great time.

I do not know really why negative comments written here in this restaurant, but these negative reviews are terribly far from reality! I honestly feel sorry on behalf of all those who write these lies! Truly, I believe that they had lunch in another restaurant, but definitely not in ANTARTIS! The food was great, the best meal we had in... More

This tavern is a very good choice but not like others in the area. The area is famous for its food and you should try it if you like good traditional cretan food.
