Great seafood

Went to this restaurant several times during our 10 day stay this year but also went there last year. It has very fresh seafood served in a simple traditional way as well as quite a lot of other dishes. The service is fast and efficient as it is always busy . I loved the saganaki mussels as well as... read more

I've been there with my wife on the last a week while we were on holiday in Crete. I've been surprised by the quality of the dishes, the kindness of the waiters and the efficiency of the service. I've eaten, among other things, my best fried kalamari in the recent years. Very good, recommend.

Excellent food quality with fresh fish! Very big portions therefore get ready to eat a lot! Even without booking in advance the staff arranged for a spot within 10 minutes of waiting! Located near the sea and has great views of the Heraklion port!

The restaurant is located just across the Venetian castle, at a busy roundabout. The small portions of food are nothing special, but the hygiene is catastrophic. All our glasses had fingerprints and lipstick marks. Moreover they have an open terrace, and we saw birds poop between and ON the tables! The worst part is the staff - although it's a... More

Food was ok but the service was hasty. At the beginning there is no waiter to ask about food recommendations and other help, there is only an item billing list left on the table that you have to fill with the quantity of a particular food item you want to order.

We ordered calamari, chicken and a chop. I wouldn't order meat again, although it was fresh and good quality was overcooked. The fish on the contrary (our calamari and the next table's fish variety) was more than great. It looked nice and tasted even better. My recommendation: order fresh fish.

Unknowingly and looking around the full pack traverna, I assumed the food would be good here. I stayed 2 nights in Crete but had 4 times food at this place. chicken schnitzel, COD fish fried with garlic sauce, Greek salad, Spaghetti with Tomato sauce was to die for. The quantity is huge, keep your stomach empty before visiting this place.

This restaurant is down by the old Venitian Port and has inside and outside dining with views of the port. We arrived about 8 pm and the place started packing folks in shortly thereafter. We had the grilled octopus and the grilled cuddlefish (comes with sliced potato fries and onioms) and a side of potato salad as my Japanese SO... More
