“Delicious Greek food for a good price ”

Koumos - Cretan Traditional Tavern
Ranked #2 of 8 Restaurants in Gazi
Restaurant details
Reviewed 3 May 2018 via mobile

We visited this taverna on a random week night in May. When we arrived there were no guests so at first we had our doubts. The owner speaks only a little English but just enough to understand each other. The menu was only in Greek, so he translated it for us but since there was so much food available and it all sounded so delicious we made the deal that he would just select some starters and meat and that we would share with the 7 of us. It was all very delicious! We can especially recommend the fried aubergine and the lamb, but just let him select some foods and you'll be surprised. We only paid 12 euros per person including wine and water and fruit and raki dessert.

Great taste, traditional well cooked.
The taverns itself is full of photographs and items of the every day farmer.
The fireplace and the owner made the place very friendly.
A must, when you are in Heraklion.
The home done was very good too. No headache in the morning after several bottles.
You need to check the prices first if you are on a budget, anyway you must taste them all...

Everything reared and grown locally- delicious food, beautiful setting surrounded by olive groves and vineyards. Family run with genuine passion. Lamb is AMAZING! A must visit.

Found by chance in trip advisor ,we stopped yesterday 09 august before fly back home .
The place in the middle of nowhere and 1 km further than expected .
The restaurant is very big , new and set in the top of a hill 10 km to medallion : it seems like a castle . They have their own animal and indeed the quality of food is amazing .

Absolutely to try !
