Good food

This restaurant is located in a lovely narrow street. This environment provides warm atmosphere to restaurant. Food was good. I ordered Greek salad and moussaka. Both of them were good. Not perfect but really good. Only negative thing that I can say is its interest connection. My mobile phone was... read more

Chose this restaurant by chance as the menu looked good and offered classic Grecian food. Also there seemed to be a lot of Grete people eating inside. Not disappointed. Friendly, attentive service. One dish of grilled sardines and one plate of stuffed vegetable plus a Greek salad. Very generous portions which resulted in not finishing two of the plate. We... More

Food was average and compared to the rest of the places I visited in Crete pricier. The free desserts at the end of the meal were great though.

The evening myself and a friend dined at Terzaki they were short-staffed ...The waiters were rushing around rather stressed. They brought me the wrong main course and did not apologise or say when the correct main course would arrive. My friend's main arrived a few minutes later but there was still no mention of when mine would arrive. I asked... More

I don't really remember why we decided to have dinner there, but it was a bad choice, indeed. We had 4 different dishes and all of them was definitely under the average. Now, I can understand that pasta in Crete should be avoided, but even the local specialties were the worst I had in two weeks on the island. Not... More

Small local place with tables on the street, delicious food (I recomend fried baby shrimp and grilled octopus, best I had so far). Service was excelent and full of surprises (like changing your wine choice for a better and more expensive one but charging for the cheaper and not by mistake, or treating you to a brandy on the house)....

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
