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

Some people will adore this restaurant, maybe we had an off night. Friendly welcome, you are shown the days specials in the kitchen. It just din't tick the buttons for us, but there's nothing really to criticise.

This was the nearest restaurant to our hotel (Galaxy Hotel Iraklio), being just down the street. We tried it one night and found the food excellent, though we were somewhat puzzled by the fact that not everything on the menu appeared to be available. However, it didn't spoil the meal, so I'd recommend it to anyone staying in this part... More

We had an enjoyable lunch at this restaurant which was clearly a favourite with the Greeks. We were shown the kitchen and the food for lunch which, in the case of the moussaka and the like was prepared fresh that morning. The portions were Greek sized and the food was tasty and well executed -- the veal in tomato was... More
