And thanks for adding that hearty, delicious vegetarian dishes are also easy to find on Crete so vegetarians need not fear.

Yes, we saw several families gather together in their own taverna to eat during the off-hours when we were finishing up our meals. That’s always a good sign :)

Adding that, seems to be an often asked questions, though meat reigns as the highlight for many in Crete, there are few better places to find big, meaningful and varied salads and even cooked vegetable dishes.

Many tavernas in Greece do in effect serve “home cooking” as many are run by the family who also eat their meals – same as the ones you enjoy – right there.

Glad you found this useful for your upcoming trip! You’ll find that a lot of people on Crete do speak some English, so you can likely ask in towns and villages for small, local restaurants. If you have the name of a place, just keep asking in villages until you find it.

One of the tricks that I’ve learned over the years is to ask someone where they eat dinner/lunch instead of just asking for a general restaurant recommendation. As for getting the Greek translations for dishes, you can also ask people at the hotel where you’re staying to write things in Greek. You could also download an app for your phone like iTranslate. I’m sure you’ll have no problem finding lots of delicious food on your journey!

We will be traveling independently, with a car but without such excellent guides as yours. How feasible is it to find these your recommended out of the way restaurants, or to get “the good stuff” at the little tavernas that don’t have menus? Is there a book or website with Greek translations or spellings of all these foods? Thanks.

I am doing tours to Crete in 2014 and have been describing the food! I really want people to experience how wonderful it is there.
The pictures don’t do it justice!
Beautiful post.
