We ate dinner three times at Third Eye on our holiday in Paleochora.
The dishes were very good.
We liked especially moussaka, briam, lasagne with mushrooms and spinach
The ordinary restaurants have all vegetarian dishes, but Third Eye is a good vegetarian alternative.
Third Eye is located on a sideroad to the beachroad on Pakeochoras westside.
You can sit inside, in front of the restaurant or in a garden behind the restaurant.

Cape Crocodile

Reviewed By George Z - Patras, Greece

We've been told that the place is popular for the pork spareribs. that unfortunately we did not order.
Everything else, chicken fillet with the butter dip, meat balls-burger or i don't know what, the salads or the mushrooms were average, except the check that was not so average.

Maria's Restaurant

Reviewed By chloe_johnson5

Can't beat the location. Right on the water... spectacular views while having dinner... amazing! Home style cooking and the family vibe was the best part of the dining experience. Maria's food is delicious and her kids were serving. Met their adorable dog who was hanging out with the family out front of the restaurant. Very relaxed! Moussaka was awesome! Highly recommend.

Kiparaki

Reviewed By gaymaria - Bucksburn

The owners spend their winter travelling in the East (Cambodia, Vietnam etc) and the food is a fusion of their Dutch heritage, travels and cooking skills. We've never had a bad meal here and you have to book, even in October. Some amazing taste combinations I've never experienced elsewhere. She is an amazing cook.

Methexis Taverna

Tel: +30 28230 41431

Reviewed By LN1946 - Oksboel, Denmark

We had heard, that Methexis should be the best restaurant in Paleochora.
It wasn't. Not on our day, in any case.
Service: 45 minutes after we had given our orders, the waiter came and told us, that they didn't have our starters. We must give new orders, and that meant a very long wait.
Food: We were disappointed. Most of the food had less taste than normal greek taste.
Maybe it's because, that the restaurant is a tourist-place, that they don't dare to put greek taste in the food. I have never before got a tzatziki without garlic-taste!
The restaurant is a little noisy. They play music quite loud, and that means that the conservations in the room also get higher. Result: A noisy place.

Taverna Grameno

Reviewed By Hajimasabi - Veneta, Oregon

We picked this B&B just driving along the road out of town. So glad we did. Stayed 2 nights and ate at the restaurant both nights. The room was perfectly clean, well appointed with a kitchenette and even came with complimentary raki. The grounds are a working garden which supplies manyof the ingredients for the restaurant. The mezzes for 3 was enough to feed 6 with all dishes well prepared, and served with a smile. The couple that owns the place cook all the food and work hard to make everything perfect. The octopus in wine was fantastic and the ekmek kataifi was incredible. A great family run place off the beaten path outside of town and with a great Beaches right across the street. Loved it and hope to return.

Reviewed By Philippe A

Best restaurant that we have tested in Creta.
The food was excellent and for a moderate price. We received well prepared dishes that were different that you get everywhere in Creta.
Service was top with valuable recommendations. For example they recommended a single starter as seen the quantity. Good wine. We chose glasses of wine instead of a bottle in order to taste several wines and finally for a cheaper price.

MasaSoura

Reviewed By RussellRSAUK - Leeds, United Kingdom

It was our first night in Crete so we were excited to try the local food. We had a look on trip advisor and this came up with good reviews. We had some starters - cheese with honey and dakos - the cheese was over powered by the honey and sesame seed and the Dakos was dry. Our mains unfortunately weren't much better - one of us had the pasta bake which was almost inedible for the amount of nutmeg, the other two dishes of grilled sardines and pork Slovaki were also below average.
I wouldn't recommend this restaurant given the variety in the area - such a shame.
