Fresh seafood for big appetites

Simple taverna style but a very efficient staff and huge portions. I had the Mussels Saganaki and there must have been 50 big ones in the pot. She had the seafood risotto and it could have fed 3 people. Really delicious. Quite reasonable. The total bill was €22 and dessert with doughnuts ice... read more

Nice seafood, big variety of Greek tapas. Good location exactly opposite to the Koule but also close to busy noisy road. The food is really good but unfortunately it is always very busy and noisy. Staff is overloaded with work therefore sometimes they seem a bit rude. Couple of times I had an impression that everything was coming too fast... More

A genuine Greek tavern, with delicious food, fresh and well made, big portions, excellent service, and good prices. When you cannot take in any more food, they still bring you dessert on the house, as well as raki, the typical Cretan liquor. The atmosphere is laid back and family-like. I will definitely go there again.

Good seafood restaurant , rustic decor and very busy but with a fast and efficient service. Ordering is made through a check list menu that makes it very easy although a little impersonal. The portions are abundant and the food is generally fresh. We had an outdoor table that had a view on the fortress. We recommend the fried courgettes... More

We were recommended this restaurant by Paul and Fiona who run the Whisky Bar in Kokkini Hani and we weren't disappointed. Great selection and if you like to see a picture of what every meal looks like before you order then you're sorted. Personally i like to be surprised but the wife prefers to know what she's ordering. We'd heard... More

The best restaurant!! In super best prices. You can’t miss it. Try the fried zucchini & the fish pasta. You need to book if you go on rush hours. Trust me - you won't regret it....

Had both lunch and dinner here. Good service and nice food reasonably priced. Recommended. Family friendly. You fill in your own order that way no mistakes are made, works well! Big portions too, so don't over order. Place is buzzing with people.

We visited this restaurant on the first of our 3-day visit in Heraklion. It was full so we thought we can't go wrong. We directly noticed that the waiters were running around like crazy. We received 2 glasses, 1 of them was dirty so after a few trys we managed to get the attention of a waiter and ask for... More

I' ve dined a few times (the last one on February 1st) at this well located restaurant and always appreciated both the quality of the food and the hefty portions which are served. The varied menu and the friendly staff are certainly a plus. The only negative feature is due to the fact that (as everywhere throughout Greece) smoking is... More

The restaurant Ligo Krasi is located in front of the Venetian fortress, on the old harbour of Heraklion. The menu proposes a broad choice of fishes and cretan specialities. The fish is very fresh and tasty. The price is really acceptable for this quality. The staff is very efficient. A good address at a nice location.
