Good classic Greek cuisine

We went three times, and each time we were warmly welcomed and treated to really good Greek classic cuisine. Those searching for Michelin starred restaurants would be disappointed, but thats not the point with Heraklion. Its more a question of seeking out good tasting food, using good ingredients... read more

Decent restaurant but nothing spectacular. The food is rather blunt and even though it claims traditional it has a twist that goes nowhere.. The place feels cold in the winter

Very cosy and beautiful restaurant. The service was fine, the food alright and decently priced. We recommend getting a caraf of their Cretan wine - good and cheap.

We visited this restaurant based on the fact it was the no1 in Heraklion and was suprised to find it almost empty when we got there. The outdoor setting is really nice, although a business operating behind the boundary of the restaurant was obviously working at this time of the evening and the noise at times intrusive. The waitress was... More

We celebrated a birthday here. I had researched this hotel via TA and found all the good reviews. I emailed and made a booking, but unfortunately when we arrived at the restaurant we were the only ones booked in. They had kindly set tables around us to try and make us feel more comfortable. So there was no atmosphere. The... More
