  • Had a wonderful wine tasting experience at Lyrarakis. We booked with a company on TripAdvisor who took us here by car, but it’s possible to drive there yourself. It was up in the mountains so we dressed more warmly. The people working there were very knowledgeable about wines and the food was also brought out straightaway. It was all delicious except the pork kept attracting a bunch of wasps, which was a bit mad. We were given a tour around the front part of the vineyard and told about the different types of grapes they grew and the philosophy behind the different methods of growing them. I highly recommend coming here!
  • Start off by saying the wine was really good! They give a good amount of samples with a large amount of food! The food is vegetables and meat. Recommend if you are vegetarian that you mention that to them prior to showing up. The staff was really nice but my only complaint was to get more info on the winery. I only mention this because the weather wouldn't allow the group to walk around through the vineyard instead we stayed near the building. We sat there for a while but felt we could have been given more information. All together it was very pleasant and the area is relaxing and nice. Highly recommend if you have time to drive out and see the vineyard!
  • Excellent wines, beautiful setting, fairly priced tastings, and delicious food. We were pleasantly surprised with the food menu and high quality dishes, which makes Lyrarakis a great place for a combination lunch and tasting, even if not everyone in your party is drinking wine. The staff was also really friendly and helpful, even driving us back to our car which we had to park a bit down the road due to construction when we were done. Highly recommend a visit to Lyrarakis.
  • Me and my family took a 7 wine tasting here and the service was super! They explained everything about the wines we tasted, and when you went on a tour in the vineyard! The food was also very good and we recommend everyone this experience ☺️ And obviously the wines were really tasteful and nice!
  • Beautiful Winery. High class quality. Great explanation about the wine and its process and warm welcome from the host. And we really appreciated the tasting ! A little bit expensive altough.
