I Sterna tou Bloumosifi, one of the most famous taverns in the prefecture, is located in Vamos, 20 km from the center of Chania town. The building it is housed in first opened in 1905 as a coffee shop and the cistern in the middle was used to keep beverages cool.
Today, it stands out for its traditional Cretan cuisine and generous hospitality. The snails, split peas, octopus with fennel and local meat roasted in the traditional oven stand out on the menu. In summer you can enjoy your meal in the beautiful yard under the shade of the plane, while in winter you will be drawn inside to the warmth of the fire.
