We start directly with the insider tip, Taverna Zorbas Pigi, also called “Maria”
During a visit to Crete in March 2022 we happened to pass through the village of Pigi which is located about 25 KM west of Panormo. There we stopped in the tavern “Zorbas Pigi” to get food and drinks. The owner, Maria, has been running this tavern for 50(!) years now and since then she has not changed her great tzatziki recipe. Everything here is homemade and comes from the area. The place is very cozy and relaxing. The area in front of the restaurant is shaded under olive trees. “Maria” is a typical local tavern with very good prices and incredibly delicious food. The restaurant is our absolute insider tip. Also Water and some appetizers and dessert often do not show up on the bill. So you can eat here also very inexpensive. We are always at Pigi/Maria at least once when we visit Crete.
Since the 70's this tavern has been run by the current owner Maria. The tzatziki is truly addictive and the other dishes are fantastic too!

This is just a small selection of the taverns and bars available in the 650-strong municipality of Panormo, where Suite Leon is located.
Currently, we have not yet been in any restaurant in which I would not recommend to you. At anyplace it really was delicious and the drinks were always best in class. But make up your own mind and enjoy the time in Suite Leon & Panormo :).
