Cheap and cheerful

Had a nice time here. Friendly staff but not in your face, and the food was good. Not great, but for €22 for two mains and a half litre of wine that’s very good.

Not a huge number of veg options, but enough to make us consider going back.

Pros: Great value

Cons: Didn’t ask if I wanted vegan cheese

I'm not sure how long ago you visited but they now have an extensive vegan/vegetarian menu and almost all dishes can be veganised if requested.

Very enthusiastic owner

The owner is the nicest person. He is very enthusiastic about vegan food and this shows through how he talks about it and how many options there is. We tried the falafel plate, vegetarian butcher burger and vegan mushroom gyros. All the options were tasty but the service topped it off. One day he even gave us a try or his own personal vegan chocolate he’s brought from the shop with was so nice of him, such a friendly man!

Pros: Lots of options, Amazing service

Best vegan pita I've ever had!

I wish I could give 5 stars, but unfortunately that is only possible for completely vegan restaurants

If you have the opportunity to visit this place, you should definitely try it! You will be greeted by a super friendly waiter and almost every dish can be made vegan. We had the vegan Greek salad and the mushroom pita, oh my! That was the bomb!

Pros: Almost every dish can be made vegan , Super friendly waiter , Inexpensive

Cons: None!

Unbelievably good vegan food! 5* if we could.

The owners brother, our waiter, is an asset to the place in every way. He is funny, kind, remembers faces and ticks every box in how to be a good waiter - check backs ("is everything okay with your food?"), fast, competent, friendly, ect ect).
The food was sublime! I had tomato soup as a starter and a falafel pitta with hand cut chips as a main, both of which were the best food I had on holiday. My girlfriend had mushrooms in a creamy sauce as a starter - that was so good we both used it as a sauce on our mains - and a mushroom gyros which she like so much she brought home what she couldn't eat.
The menu is very vegan friendly with lots of variety such as pizzas, pastas, gyros ect.
The place is clearly very good because, as it was full, they were turning people away who actually came back an hour later as well as people stood around waiting for a table to be free. Not only this but by what we saw they have regulars and also a few returning holiday makers choosing it as their go to place.

Lovely welcoming restaurant

We were so happy to find this little place which allowed me to have some vegan gyros! After two weeks of trying different vegan places around Crete this was the most welcoming place we ate at. The staff are exceptionally welcoming and genuine, which makes you feel really comfortable. Both waitresses are so lovely and sweet they will make you smile. Nothing is too much hassle for them. Great food with lovely service. Would highly recommend. They have vegan pizza, pasta, burger, gyros and lots more!

Pros: Friendly staff , Good food , Great value

If you're in the area, this is a MUST!

Me and me wife went to this restaurant once and had the vegan gyros, and after that we came back for lunch every day.
The staff is the kindest people you'll ever meet and the food is simply great! The owner is apperently vegan, so almost everything on the menu can be made vegan.
Try their local beer and homemade hummus, it's absolutely amazing!

Pros: Majority of the menu is vegan/vegetarian, Great for both lunch and dinner, Pretty low prices

Cons: If I'd say any, it's that there's meat on the menu, but hey.. after this experience one just , simply can't complain.

Unique options on Crete

I was pleasantly surprised to find this restaurant open in a town where most places are closed for the winter season. The staff gave me a warm welcome and the chef (also vegan) helped me decide what to eat. She raved about the jackfruit "fish" and chips, which were quite tasty. When I finished she asked for my opinion because she's been working on the recipe, which I appreciated. The dish came with a side of mashed peas with lemon - yum! I also ordered a latte with coconut milk. The whole experience made feel all warm and fuzzy inside, so I left feeling very satisfied.

Pros: Friendly staff, Unique menu items, Non-dairy milk options
