The traditional Cretan tavern “Fagopoteio o Polopetros” is located in Roustika of Rethymno, a small village with rare natural beauty, traditional architecture and hospitable inhabitants.
The antikristo, the snails, the gamopilafo, the mizithropites, the syzuma spaghetti, the eggs with the staka, the apaki and the dakos with the xinomizithra, accompanied by homemade tsikoudia or local wine are just a few of the Cretan delicacies for which “Polopetros” is literally famous all over the world. Because apart from its regular and fanatical guests from all over Crete, during the summer season hundreds of visitors of our island visit it to taste the traditional Cretan cuisine and the warm welcome.
Our tavern is a family business and all the materials we use are either our own production, or we procure them from our village or the surrounding villages, supporting the local economy. We have an outdoor area in Panagia Square, but also a warm indoor area for the winter.
Very often we organize Cretan or folk nights with musicians of our place. We can also host your own events, your wedding, your baptism or your engagement.

Highly recommend a trip to this restaurant - the food is amazing, the owners are friendly, and the atmosphere is wonderful. Some of the specialty food needs to be ordered the day before, but it is worth the wait. Their home made wine is really good and very drinkable!
We stopped here during our Jeep Safari, it was really nice with kind and offering people. We had the occasion to drink home made raki and other beverages, we also tasted real olive oil from Crete, it was delicious. The village is also very nice!
Lovely family owned restaurant. The owner could not speak English but called her son just to get our order and provide us service in English. The food was really really good, you could make some dishes vegan. The meat was fresh and "grown" locally. They would do anything for the customer. Great restaurant and would definitely recommend a visit.
Off the beaten track for this Cretan culinary delight. Famed Antichristo well worth a visit. Wonderful menu and you may lucky enough to taste homemade dolmades and stuffed anthous. Excellent service from brothers Ioannis & Petros
