An to Petyxeis

Tiny little place in a tiny little Cretan mountain village with food to totally die for. First they bring you oil with a few drops of lemon and olives to dip bread in. We had caltsounia, cretan fried pies with fresh herbs, greens and courgette flowers. A salad of unbelievably fresh veg and fresh sheep’s cheese. Chips that were fat and crisp with tzatziki so thick it was almost cheese.

And embarrassingly cheap. You couldn’t get Heston to make food as good.



  1. Can I come? Pretty pretty please?

    That looks so incredibly good. Food like that is what many people search for at great cost in time and money.

    On a serious note, kali orexi!

    Thanks for the inspiring pictures.

  2. Look at that table!
    As ratty said “oh my, oh my”

    what’s the white stuff? tzatziki?
    (apols for canuckian spelling)



  3. For some, not so strange reason I feel suddenly hungry! As the Egyptians would say ‘Bil henna wa Shifa’ (Health and happiness).
    Anyhow – I have been told a seafood pasta is on tonight’s menu so I will make through the evening! :))
    Keep enjoying!

  4. I was going to guess Sougia/ Agia Ireni from the photos. Beautiful part of Crete.
    That tzatziki looks amazing; the richest i’ve ever seen.
    The big question remains though – who snaffled all the chips?!
