Went there on a recommendation - no atmosphere - 3 waiters watching us eat and slow service - food ... poor many other better options. Even the raki was disappointing.

Great place, great people and some of the most amazing seafood we found here. A great variety to choose from and i mean a really great one! We went there on a warm summer evening and a chilled glass of ouzo simply came out of heaven! Don't be afraid - just do it! We loved Varvagianni - the green labeled,... More

Good things first: The Food was good. We had some starters, and then sqid and fried fish. What wasted the evening was the service: The main course arrived when we were still busy with the starters, so it was only warm later. And from the last bite 'til the invoice it took 3 attempts and 40 min. At the time... More

Our family of 4 adults stayed at the nearby Kastro Hotel where the receptionist recommended this restaurant. She got a big hug from us for doing so as this was hands down the best meal we ate in over 2 weeks on Crete. Everything was amazing..we ordered several dishes to split between our group along with several bottles of wine.... More

I'm a native from Heraklion Crete. The food in this place is average, something that definitely you can easily find in many fish food restaurants in nearby piazzas. The issue with this place is the staff as well the owner which both are the essence of roundness and unprofessionalism ! I placed a dinner for my British friends, and in... More

We love, love, love this place! Beautifully located opposite the Aghios Dimitrios Church. Delicious food, served by an outstanding and friendly staff. Warm atmosphere inside which was nice given the fresh temperatures outside. We also got loucoumades offered by the taverna, to top off an excellent meal. Very honest prices, we can highly recommend this place! We already decided to... More

I wanted only soup for dinner. When I checked their menu at the entrance, it didn't look that they had it but a waiter pointed "Fish Soup". OK, why not try, then ? It is the only soup they have. It tastes so good. I can't explain what is made from such as seasoning but it is rich and kinda... More
