“Piperia” Tavern is a beautiful traditional tavern set in the small mountain village of Pefki, some 7 kms from Makri Gialos. “Piperia”, meaning pepper tree, refers to the huge pink pepper tree that dominates the tavern and village and which was brought to Pefki as a sapling over 100 years ago. “Piperia” is renown for its healthy, fresh and delicious Cretan dishes, as well as for its varied menu. Fanis and his family, the tavern’s owners, will happily cater large groups or provide any special dish, upon prior arrangement.
Many products can be purchased at Piperia including virgin olive oil, wine, raki, honey and herbs, which are all produced by the Ikosipendakis family and used in the dishes served at the tavern.
