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

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
