Taverna Methexis

Cretan in Paleohora

It’s well worth the short saunter to the peninsula’s southeastern tip to sample the authentic comfort food and warm hospitality at this taverna, popular with locals and tourists, across from a small beach. All the classics are accounted for, along with such tasty surprises as salt cod with garlic sauce and delicious pies filled with fennel or local myzithra (sheep’s-milk cheese).
