Taverna Kosmas


If you are nearby Heraklion Town this is one of the best places to eat.  

It's a family-run restaurant with a good selection of good fresh home-cooked Cretan-Greek food.  

Amazing food, mainly meat and vegetables, no fish. Exquisite and not expensive, local and very traditional cuisine and fantastic and rustic location. 

Taverna Kosmas is a traditional stone-built tavern in the center of the tiny village of Stamnoi, just 15km from the vibrant town of Heraklion.

This is pure tranquility. This is simple, honest fare at its best. 

Dining here is an all-round experience in Winter or Summer.

This is traditional Cretan cuisine at its best- using pure local, seasonal products, many of which are their own, in timeless, simple recipes executed with care. 

In addition, the friendly service and warm, welcoming atmosphere all combine to make it well worth the jaunt from Heraklion.
