Excellent vegetarian restaurant in beach village
Posted on 08 / 21 / 2011
We can't say enough about the Third Eye and Paleochora. You come to a beautiful village, full of mainly Greek tourists, and right off the beach is a beautiful gem of a restaurant, which is mainly vegan.
We had dinner here twice. The menu changes daily, all the dishes were about 7 Euro. The first day we got a curry and an Indonesian dish with peanut sauce. The second day we order Somasos with chutney and salad, and another curry.
They also served us great bread and garlic bread, and at the end of the meal, when we couldn't eat any more, a plate of watermelon.
The workers are all from one big family. All the vegan dishes were clearly marked.
My wife also went for breakfast (while I was hiking the Samara Gorge nearby). She particularly like the nice atmosphere.
My only suggestion (enhancement) is that they try to provide vegetarian cheese. The owner told us that this father makes the feta himself, but he wasn't sure about the enzymes. If they could have assured us the enzymes were not animal-based we would have eaten the feta as well (after a week in Crete, we really wanted to try the feta).
We recommend both the restuarant and the town, I would plan my trip around going to the Third Eye!
excellent food, great value, large portions
