Pleasant dinner

Just down the road from our hotel, a local restaurant with a family atmosphere. Only a couple of staff there on a cold Tuesday night in February. The elderly waiter/owner was hospitable and the menu was presented in English. I had excellent shrimp saganaki followed by tasty pork souvlaki. Took a... read more

Smack on a main street, this family-run restaurant (one brother cooks, the other waits tables)is easy to find. We just stumbled onto it and were glad we did. One of the appetizers was eggplant stuffed with feta cheese and it was fabulous. Our main courses were likewise delicious. You can choose to sit inside, or outside on the patio in... More

We met a local taxi driver whilst travelling around Crete. He promised we would get authentic Cretan food here and he was right. We had a late lunch at Kiriakos consisting of a delicious fish roe dip with bread and olives, a nice souvlaki and a wonderful moussaka. This restaurant is in the centre of Herkalion, had efficient staff and... More

This Restaurant was 2 blocks away from our Hotel, and was recommended by our guide. The Restaurant is nicely decorated and very clean; the reception was good. The Menu was full of varied dishes; the waiter recommended that we check the kitchen; that was a good idea as we found a dozen of authentic Cretan homemade fresh dishes. We selected... More

We choose the restaurant Kiriakos because of the proximity to our hotel and the centre of the city of Heraklion . The dishes were delicious and the portions big. We ordered more than we could eat, but everything was really well prepared. The service was fast , although the restaurant was almost full. Prices were ok for the quality .... More

We visited the restaurant as we were staying nearby and the menu looked great. The older waiter/owner seemed friendly but not overally welcoming. I had the mousakka and my husband had the mixed grill. My mousakka was obviously pre made but that is understandable with that type of dish but it was cold so hadn't been heated properly. I asked...
