Greek Cousine Award - Golden Chef's Hats 2011, Athinorama magazine
"The cretan traditional cousine at its best. From two brothers who not only cook but study the tradition, while eagerly searching for excellent raw materials. The perfection of simplicity through a dish with greens, minced tomatoe, extra virgin olive oil and garlic, or through a grilled rabbit with olive oil."
"Backstage: You taste pies that rock, with handmade phyllo, some fried and others baked, depending on what suits their filling. For dessert they make loukoumades with icecream, that explode in your mouth filling it with a sweet syrop. Giorgos Chatzimanolakis is passionate about his job. He will tell you the history of each dish and its roots in the past. The entrance smells like basil, but the large wooden terrace, which stands on stakes and hangs above the ground, is certainly amazing."

"Tradition to the point: this tavern built of stone owned by Giorgos and Panagiotis Chatzimanolakis reveals in the best way the recipes and the local goods, 10 km outside from Chania.
Eftichia Chatzimanolakis is in charge in the kitchen: a right cook, she makes refreshing stamnaghathi salad, exquisite octopus with avronies (wild greens), aromatic marathopites (fennel pies) and onion kalitsounia (onion pies) and fulfils the cretan "symphony" with apaki, prolific staka and askordoulakous (wild greens) - even the most simple dishes are exceptionally expressive.
