Polyrinia is a small town in the area of Kisamos (north-western area of Chania prefecture). It is located on a hill, 10 minutes by car south of Kisamos (Kasteli) town. The town is worth visiting for its existing old buildings and the well restored old houses.
Review of the Acropolis Tavern
On your way up to the ancient Acropolis you will see the “Acropolis” tavern of Mr. Yannis Sfakianakis.
The view is great and the shadow in the terrace of the tavern is absolutely refreshing in a hot summer day. If you don’t feel hungry you may enjoy your drink or your coffee but if you decide to have lunch here then this is your lucky day!
The cuisine of Mr. Sfakianakis is absolutely great. Everything served here is fresh and produced by himself. Even a plain omelet becomes a delicious dish if it is made of local eggs. Do not miss the local lamb meat grilled or cooked with red sauce served with potatoes fried in olive oil (do not even consider comparing them to “french fries”).
If you call “Acropolis” (tel. 08220-23340) before your visit to Polyrinia then you may ask Mr. Sfakianakis to cook something real special for you: rooster in red sauce served with traditional Cretan-style boiled rice.
Wine is also the owner’s product and it is a great sample of Kisamos wines (red dry wine).
If you can still eat something more after the delicious meal, then ask for the desert of Acropolis: fried cheese pies served with locally produced thyme honey. It would be a nice idea to ask that in greek: pites me meli.
