Good food, good service - what more do you need from a restaurant?

Firstly, a confession - I wanted to try Glossitses and give it a poor review. We've walked past it quite a few times, and thought it might be hype giving it such a good reputation, and such regular custom. I was wrong. It is a really good place to eat. If I had to pick holes, it was a shame... read more

Sorry if my title was a little scary but im just being honest. When we arrived, the place was pretty empty and I was skeptical to stay there because every other place was so full but the reviews were awesome, so we stayed. Turns out, it was just a little early to be arriving. Anyway, fast forward 20 minutes and... More

Went to this restaurant based on reviews here. First of all small portions for what you pay and a tip for kitchen read again recipes. Giaourtlou is not meat with yogurt only! Search on the web and learn what you serve. Average at his best

We just stopped by looked at the menu and decided to give it a try. Not only prices are very reasonable but service and finally more important the food was excellent !! I am writing this review still seating in the restaurant. We chose simple cretan food, yet excellent. The grilled Tuna was delicious, although its appearance was pretty "simple".... More

We went twice there for dinner. First of all we went in as it was full of people and many locals there. The staff was very kind and friendly, helpful in choosing dishes, but at the same time not pushing to choose based on price. We had snails, that I personally like, but family was not fond of it, well... More

Agree with other comments that taste was average. Locals go as well. A couple with a young baby had a table next to... More

We ate at thi a restaurant several times as it was close to our place. We really enjoyed the seafood but the other dishes were pretty average. I'm sure it is lovely on a nice summer evening. The staff was very friendly

Glossitses is a eating establishment in the old port harbor area. The restaurant has a nice view of the harbor. This place is frequented by locals. Clean and comfortable environment. The food is average. I would of gave 4 stars but because the establishment allows smoking, I dropped the rating to 3 stars. Smoking is so not in fashion nowadays.... More

We had an excellent late lunch outside in the sun in february, just a few meters from the sea. The food was delicious, the staff was very helpful and the service was very good. I would recommend the black rice with squids,sardines wrapped in vine leaves and grilled octopus.
