Piperia Tavern


The traditional tavern "Pepper or Piperia" is located in the mountain village of Pefkos, approximately 7km from Makrigialos, eastern Crete.

Piperia offers fantastic views of the Libyan Sea and the valley of Makrigialos.

Just sit under the shade of this enormous pepper tree and enjoy the tranquility of this small village and the excellently cooked dishes like stifado and goat with fresh beans and more others.

Its name comes from the huge pepper that dominates both the tavern and the entire village, which came in Pefkos as a sample before 100 years.

The "Pepper", whose owners are Fanis and his family, is known for its healthy, fresh, and delicious Cretan dishes, as well as for the variety of dishes is. With prior arrangement, you could arrange any particular dish.

A traditional "age-old" cafe, with a view that takes your breath away. Cretan cuisine, home-cooking dishes, local ingredients, pure flavors.

A well-hidden secret in this mountain village of East Crete very close to our Aspros Potamos Traditonal - Eco Houses. A jewel tavern with traditional Cretan cuisine, and a very friendly owner, Fanis who loves what he does and it looks and has an impact on this small place.

Awesome salad, cheese pies, out of competition the imam with meatballs and the askordoulakoi. 

At "Piperia" you can buy various local products (such as olive oil, wine, raki, honey, and herbs), produced by the family Eikosipentaki and use to prepare the meals offered in the tavern.
