Have had both lunch and dinner at the restaurant on different occasions but it was always full and rather noisy.... Would not recommend it for a... More

Our first time we really didn't expect to be treated with such huge dishes. We ordered 3 dishes, fresh small squid, kalamari and spaggetti with sea food. No matter how tasty these dishes were, twe just couldn't have them. So next time we'll order 1 or 2 dishes. On top of that we were treated with 2 plates of fruits... More

Full disclosure: I did not intend to eat here, but the another restaurant, highly recommended by friends, is only open on weekends during the winter. I wandered in to this restaurant as a convenient alternative. And what a wonderful discovery. The prices are very reasonable; the seafood, fresh and delicious; the service, friendly and quick. I would definitely return.

Simply one of the top fish taverns in the island. Don't leave the city without paying a visit. Tasty dishes and also relatively cheap.

We found this fish restaurant on the quayside quite by accident but didn't go anywhere else once we'd found it! They served the most amazing fish, cooked in full view in the kitchen. The staff were attentive and helpful, the menu was vast and we felt as if we dined like lords and we served the same way. At the... More

Ligo Krasi is one of the few places in Heraklion where I am always confident that I and my guests will leave satisfied in every respect! Excellent seafood - a continually buzzing atmosphere - speedy service and very good value for money. Highly recommended :)

A fish tavern in Heraklion, that offers very good quality fish and seafood - it has a wide variety of regional wines with exceptional taste, and at the end it offers a variety of complimentary fruit/desserts, in addition to the great loukoumades - service is lacking a bit, especially when full, but people working there are smiling and generally helpful.

Staff were very busy and rushed us for eatin so much!! Actually, there were so many tourists in the high season because tourists don't know the fact about the restaurant. I think most of tourists asscess them too much. Thre are a number of good restatrants in Heraklion. Food and wine were under the average....
