Really amazing food with wonderful service. They did the best stuffed vine leaves that I have ever tried and I also really enjoyed the traditionally cooked Antikristo. Delicious Cretan white wine and desserts rounded out a meal in a beautiful walled garden. A wonderful end...to our time in Crete.More

Beautiful food at very reasonable prices, the staff are so friendly. We went on the second night of our holiday and the food and prices were so good we visited a further 3 times in a 10 day holiday. The garlic bread, pizzas and fillet...steak are unbelievable!!!! Not to mention the free deserts and raki we were given to finish A++++More

It was a shame that it didn’t go better. For instance, we ordered starters but they were served at the same time as the mains and as a result everything got cold and therefore not as enjoyable. We specifically asked for the starters to come...first to allow time before the mains. The restaurant was not full so there was no need to rush us. I am not convinced our experience sums up the place but I can only write about our meal. Desert was provided on the house but it was way too much for 2 people. That not exactly a complaint but seems a bit wasteful.More

We were really pleasantly surprised by this restaurant which due to its size seemed like it could be a bit average however we were pleasantly mistaken. They cater for large groups really well, fast and attentive service with an excellent selection. The fire roasted lamb...is an a must - it’s tender, smoky and a real treat!More

What can I say, to the staff at the petusis restaurant, thank you for the fabulous service and amazing food. We tried the restaurant on the first night of our holiday and the fillet steak was so tasty, had a wonderful evening (inclusive of complimentary...Raki!) Went to other places over the next couple of nights but decided to return to Petusis as nothing else compared. Over our whole 10 day holiday we have dined at petusis 4 tines (and we were in another all inclusive hotel). The cheese & garlic bread at petusis is out of this world and teamed with the garlic and cucumber yogurt it is even better. The staff are great, so attentive and friendly, they really make your evening a great experience. Give it a go, you won't be disappointed here.More

Theres not much I can say on this one, except to just TRY IT. The staff are fantastic, you will often find families and locals inside. You'll be given a bottle and shots of Raki before you go. As a none Raki fan, this became...a joke for the twice I visited with the staff members.... I still drank it :)More

So as part of the All Inclusive offer at the nearby Agapi Beach Resort, you can opt to eat at Petousis. There’s a great set menu the price of which (including some drinks) is covered by the Hotel. That said, you must must try some...items from the main menu to. The Apaki is to die for, and the cheese trilogy is beautifully presented and tasty. You do need to ask for the main menu, and pay for items from it but it’s worth every cent. (Petousis people - If you read this I think you should give the main menu, explain what’s free from the set menu and then people can decide). What’s just as good as the food is the genuine, warm and kind greek hospitality. The staff are lovey and funny too and you’ll be kept fed, watered and entertained. 100000% will be back!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Petousis and considered ourselves lucky to get a table without a reservation. Petousis is a light, airy restaurant with very good service. We ordered fava beans, sausage in vinegar, greens, beet salad, apaki, two pasta dishes (maggiri, skioufichta), and...found everything to be delicious. The wine was excellent. As is the Cretan tradition, we were treated to raki and dessert - an amazing cheesecake. Highly recommend.More

Excellent Greek/Cretan restaurant for vegan/carnivore couple. Wide choice of traditional Cretan dishes, including generous portion of lamb grilled on the spit and traditional non-meat dishes, especially giant grilled mushrooms. Most diners were locals, proving that the food was genuine local cuisine.
