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

We found this by chance. The staff are not at all pushy and very friendly with pretty good english. They seemed to be 4 brothers under the forbidding gaze of their father, but that is only an impression. Our waiter talked us through the menu and made some suggestions. Grilled lamb chops were heavenly. Spicy prawns were lovely. We had... More

Place was recommended by our hotel. Relatively small establishment just off the main pedestrian street, nestled up against a small church. Weather was nice, so we got an outside table. Though waiters were casually dressed, offerings came with a certain sophistication and yet at a moderate price. Clientele seemed a mix of locals and visitors. Not a boisterous place, so... More

I should have reviewed Terzakis the 1st, or 2nd time I went! Well, better than never! If this place was facing the sea, people would be visiting by the hundreds. I am glad that it is not, because you can find a table on a lazy Saturday noon. The dishes are superbly cooked: last time we went we tried the... More

We were recommended this place by the lady at our hotel - and a very good recommendation it was! In fact, we liked it so much that we went there two nights out of our 3 in Heraklion. Everything we ordered was really good (Cretan salad, fava, octopus, etc.) The owner and staff were really friendly and at the end... More

We came back 3 nights out of 5, it was the best service and best seafood I have had in Greece so far. Definitely will be back. Efaristo We asked for a cab and they drove us back to our hotel! Can't get better service than that.

The cousine is based on traditional recipes, cooked using modern culinary techniques by experienced professionals. Just try everything… The staff are extremely welcoming, ready to assist to anything you will need and I guess like what their friends say "in the Terzakis' they not only know all about good food, they also know how to serve it!". Agios Dimitrios square... More
