Concierge.com's insider take:
This restaurant in the courtyard garden of a restored Venetian mansion, now a hotel, has a 500-year-old wine cellar housing 460 labels, and is a must-dine experience for the ambience alone. The food is worthy of the setting, with authentic Cretan dishes prepared with local ingredients. The mountain goat with thyme and honey, for instance, is a popular variation on a dish owner Katerina Xekalou's mother used to make. Authentic Cretan does not necessarily come cheap, though, so be prepared to spend your euros as if they were some lesser currency, such as dollars.
Open daily 1 pm to 12:30 am.
