Omalos tavern is situated on a small mountain village called "Kato Simi", around Viannos area, at the southeast corner of Heraklion prefecture. Despite the mountain range of Dikti, that governs the area, the magical sea front in the south is just 15 minutes away by car.
In "Omalos" tavern you will enjoy the real authentic Cretan cuisine. Their menu consists of well cooked and delicious traditional meals of premium quality. Any meat or cheese you will taste is directly delivered by the family owned butcher shop, whereas the freshly greens are collected from the surrounding mountains.
Despite the exceptional food, service is really friendly and hostile, so that creates a warm and friendly environment. In mild spring time and throughout the summer period, "Omalos" moves outdoors in its cool garden where all the tastes explode..!
The route towards the tavern is magnificent, since you can visit archaeological monuments such as the Temple of Hermis and Aphrodite, which is one of the greatest in the area, and drive through rough gorges, greenly forests, unknown caves and spring waters. The nature in the area is extraordinary and is so-called "the land of Heroes and Legends"..
