We spend about 4 days in Athens but fell completely in love with this one restaurant from day 1 that we decided to go there every day of our trip.
It was just amazing, all the dishes were absolutely delicious, from the vegetarian ones, to the ones with lamb, just incredible. It’s a place for Greek people who actually know what Cretan cuisine means. One of the evenings we also tried another restaurant somewhere in the Monastiraki area, but we were so disappointed about the food, that we decided to go back to I Kreti. The waiter there was very friendly and always recommended the best dishes. Combined with raki, some local drinks, every meal was just perfect.
our favorite dish was this special Cretan chickpeas salad
the famous and delicious lamb
