Location is great, but that's where it stops. First impression in Crete is of course the bread. They brought out a basket with two rolls and some other dried small chunks of bread, which looked like a collection of leftovers (if they weren't, the owners should seriously reconsider the presentation....). So I went with the rolls: horribly stale. We ordered... More

I had the dorade. It had a good cuisson. Found it a bit strange that it was served with rice and patatoes and no vegetables. You can also put together your own dish. Locals eat there too.

I have visited Heraklion on a number of occasions and make a visit to "Λίγο κρασί Λίγο θάλασσα - Ligo Krasi Ligo Thalassa" a must every time. This is an excellent seafood restaurant, perfectly located on the corner of the roundabout / rotary near the Koules (Venetian fortress) on the Heraklion waterfront. I first visited the restaurant with local friends... More

A tavern in a nice location with nice view to the old port of heraklion. Food is not the best you can find in place but it is relatively economic.

Visited by locals as well as tourists. Little wine, little see, little prices! Also located just in front of the see. Apparently managed by a family. The only thing missing is fans. It was a bit warm when we had lunch there.

Hard to avoid this restaurant as it has a prominent position and half the tables crowd the pavement where passers by are easily spotted and persuaded to stay. But the food is very poor quality, canteen style, thrown together where you order by filling out a form like a Chinese takeaway. No scope to customise dishes or ask questions. And... More

This restaurant was the pick of the bunch for us. Always busy so you know that's a good sign it'll have great food. Dessert of doughnuts with ice cream and fruit included at the end as well! The service has had some criticism on here, only reason why they don't smile is because they're extremely busy but are very efficient!

I visited this restaurant on a busy sunny afternoon for a late lunch with my sister. We liked the vibe and thought to try it as we had cravings for seafood. The service is average and the food is totally overpriced, quantity over quality I would say. The greek salad we ordered was inedible and the fried squid so dry... More

It is the kind of place that is always full and the waiters do not care about you..it is like they are doing you a big favor every time you ask for sth! The fried mushrooms were horrible. They came with a crust (it is the first time i see them cooked that way). The bread "basket" had hair inside.... More
