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!".

I arrived late off a ferry and came across this nice little place in a quiet side street just off the main pedestrian area. Despite it being gone 11PM on a Friday night I got served with no trouble. Food was good and good value, but the service was a little relaxed. They have a very unique ordering system where... More

In Agios Dimitris square, perhaps the most important ouzeri neighborhood. A large variety of dishes, meat, seafood, modern, traditional, whatever you wish.. It's a place with not a lot of character, but is a safe choice for a quick lunch.. Meats are ok but fish is quite average quality and definitely does not receive a gold medal for freshness.. The...

Terzakis place is a local taverna well known for many years. The quality is stable (at least when I've been there) and the food is great. Mostly Cretan cuisine, with relatively big portions. Terzakis salad, ntolmades and everything we had were really nice, while seafood risotto was exceptional! Service is very fast and the atmosphere is interesting in a nice,... More
