taverna in time

May 1, 2014

We spent a wonderful lunch yesterday at taverna Ntounias in Drakona in the mountains behind Chania. We were introduced by our friends who have eaten there many times. You really need to want to find it and it won't get much passing trade as it's really off the beaten track but well worth it. The mountain drive is wonderful up Theriso gorge and is so green with wild flowers eveywhere at this time of the year.

The taverna has no menu and you are showed into the kitchen, pans are liften off pots and the aroma of fresh cooking fills the air. We sat down and Stelios brough a small plate of everything with a lovely explanation of iit's contents. It was better that delicious and just as I remember Greece 35 years ago. I was even moved to review it in trip advisor. When you visit hotel villa kerasi I will show you the route so yoi can enjot stepping back in time.....
