Tasty Greek Food!

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... read 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...

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.
