Excellent fish restaurant just across from the old harbour in Heraklion. Menu contains accurate pictures of lots of the dishes and at lunchtime the waiter gives each table an order sheet and pen to fill in their own order. Food arrives promptly and is hot. Quantities are generous. Popular with locals and tourists alike. A plate of doughnuts and ice... More

Our recommended we go there. We asked for a fish of the day, and they told us that the price was 13euro, when the bill came, the price was 38 euro. The waiter insisted i heard it wrong and the owner supported him. We ended up paying the sum. When we told that story to our landlord he was angry,... More

when it comes to dining rooms, I am a self -diagnosed agoraphobic; I have next to zero tolerance for crowded rooms. So, I have kept avoiding this place on account of being invariably packed with a noisy crowd. Being invited to diner there, however, there was no escaping this time. Turns out, the crowd not all that vociferous. We had... More

This large restaurant has good views over the port. The menu is large and one orders by ticking boxes on a menu list. Some of the items that we ordered were good, others were not. This restaurant seems to pride itself on serving oversized portions of everything, rather than quality. The seafood pasta for 1 could have easily fed 4!!... More

Very tasty dishes, very nice dessert(on the house), huge portions, low prices and friendly staff. Also If you get to sit near window or outside you have a very nice view of Koule castle.

Some time ago this was one of the good fish restaurants for me. Recently we went several times and I was disappointed from the food quality. Maybe because this taverna is always busy place and they rely on the tourists but the quality and the service is not what it was. My favorite shrimps saganaki was terrible, the squids were... 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
