Spili - Crete - Greece

The small town of ▶ Spili in ▶ Crete belongs to the prefecture of ▶ Rethymnon and is located some 30 kms South of the city. The south shore lies just behind the coastal montains. The surroundings are composed of particularly exciting landscapes. Mt. Vorisis (878 meters) towers above Spili, and the town itself is said to be most picturesque.

Inside the town they have everything which makes a genuine Cretan small town complete: Shops, supermarkets, post and bank offices, grammar school and highschool, churches and even an episcopal palace.
 
Taverna Antigoni is located near the northern entrance on the left-hand side, directly facing Brylakis' supermarket. At first sight the place looks like two separate small tavernas as the front-side consists of different elements of style.

Because of that, many guests end up here the first time rather by coincidence (that's what happened to the web-designer who actually was only waiting for the bus). However they very quickly turn to regulars as the taverna is reputed to serve the best food in whole Spili.

photo At Kostas' and Eleni's everything is home-made. The vegetable patch and home-butchery belong to the family's domain. Therefore not only tomatoes and cucumbers come from their own production but also cutlets, souvlakis and, most of all, the big meat spit that Kostas roasts every evening on his open charcoal barbecue.

Wine (red & white!) and Raki are home-made as well. As for the menu, it ranges from meat-dishes to omelettes, snacks and various typical Cretan starters.
 
Most popular is the warm feta-salad made of various types of pepper, onions, herbs from the surrounding mountains and other ingredients that shall remain Kostas' secret.

Breakfast is served every morning at 9:00 a.m. at the latest. Then, Taverna Antigoni stays open until late in the night, when needed even until after midnight, all year long.
