Greek and especially Cretan food on it's best. Real quality kitchen with nice taste. The staff was friendly and the price reasonable enough. Do not forget to taste "aega kokkinisti" meaning braised goat served with chickpeas. Real traditional taste from old times. Recommend to visit.

Fantastic night with large group, very well catered for in this authentic restaurant. We had greek speakers in our group who negotiated the menu with the waiters, making sure we had a range of traditional food which we could share. Starters, main courses and desserts were all good. Plus the complimentary raki!

After having spent a few days in Crete and several more in other parts of Greece, this was definitely the best restaurant we visited. The ingredients were so fresh they tasted like they had just arrived. There was a large selection of appetizers and entrees and we wound up ordering more food than we should have. But that was not...

For our last night we wanted to eat traditional Cretan food, having enjoyed some of the wonderful dishes already on our holiday. Finding Erganos was perfect! We had a selection of hot & cold mezze plates, sampling cheese, stunning sausages, a meat pie (that according to my partner was the best he'd eaten!), and salads. All washed down with a... More

Food was great and staff was super friendly. A couple things to warn about is that they don't speak much English so questions about them menu were hard to get an answer. Also there is no seafood. We finished out dinner with complimentary desert.

I had lunch today at Erganos and I was just blown away but the amazing food! Not to miss : boiled horta (greens), fava beans, delicious cretan hand-made pasta with cheese and little yummy cheese pies with honey! Definitely one of the best places in Heraklion to taste the REAL traditional food

We are staying at the Galaxy Hotel ---- a great place to stay. After looking at the reviews on TA we decided to eat at Erganos Restaurant. After we walked to where it is located on the TA map we walked back to the Galaxy and took a cab. It is about 1 mile or so in the opposite direction... More

Very traditional Cretan food. I had the veal chop which was so good I could have eaten the bone. For appetizers we shared the marrow and stuffed grape leaves which were also very good. The waiter was wonderful and tried very hard to explain in English what the various dishes were. The only thing I didn't like - which is... More

A receptionist suggested this place after I asked him to point me in the direction of a traditional Cretan taverna. To cut a long story short, I've visited Heraklion twice since and Erganos is always in my plans. The lamp is superb, the meatpie is really tasty and the salads very fresh. It generally serves good traditional food at very... More
