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...

Every time I come to this restaurant, the first thing I always do, is go to the kitchen and see what 's cooked today... I always find something new to try, and every time I get more than I expect... Definately recommend it.

Overrated chaps.... The food is nice, but the quantity vs the prices are very overrated. Nothing special that you can't find in various restaurants in Heraklion.

The information Center near the Heraklion Archeological museum recommended this restaurant and it was the best food we have had in Greece. Excellent moussaka, dolmades, eggplant with feta, and the best okra dish I have ever eaten. This was an unexpected pleasure. Not to be missed.

Spotlessly clean with a lovely old chap providing excellent service in a pleasant surrounding...... Now for the surreal experience. It's Saturday night 8.30 p.m...... we were the only people there....he brings us the menu and disappears....he comes back with some bread and nibbles and invites us to see his kitchen, we aren't fussed, but he insists.....so we go and look....

We saw this was highly rated and were staying nearby, so we went for dinner. We were the only people there, and the owner insisted we go look at the kitchen. The menu is vague and overpriced, so we ended up making an excuse and leaving.

We enjoyed lunch during our second port stop here. There is not that much to do in Heraklion for the second time in 10 days, so a good Greek lunch was on our agenda. We found that here. We sat on the covered porch and enjoyed a nice carafe of wine and typical Greek dishes. The owner and his son... More
