The best cooked meals ever.

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.

The restaurant is near to the centre of Heraklion. It has a good atmosphere, quiet music, good service, tasty food and prices equal to the quality.

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...

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.
