Once we experienced Jannis once, we had to go back again and again. The suckling pig was absolutely incredible- but the stifado and bifteki were also mind blowing. It's difficult to beat the friendly atmosphere and service on offer. Obviously, that's why we kept going back, when we were only in the area for a week.

Usual local menu available with specials on offer on different days. Really lovely owner and waiter. Little gift of local Oregano for the ladies when you leave a nice touch. Only criticism is he gives to much away! Bread and dips to start and then sweet treats at the end, seems to be normal in Crete but my husband was... More
