Greek Restaurant
“Aleko’s is a good quality, traditional Cretan restaurant right on the main road through Armeni. They don’t give you a menu, but will produce a meze of great-tasting dishes. The focus is on meat and vegetables rather than fish or seafood and the wines are surprisingly good. Best avoided on a really hot evening because you’ll want to sit outside but these days there is a a lot of traffic in high season. Inside, around the back, is much nicer.”
