Could be great but just OK. Too expensive for what we get and compared to other places!

Food was average and too expensive for what we get. Interior and interior court are very nice, maybe a bit outdated. Service was...not sure what to write, kind, helpful but distracted, maybe tired, a bit 'Fawlty towers' It would not get much to make this one of the best and most charming restaurant... read more

We went out for dinner, and spotted a nice looking garden where every table was taken, so we automatically assumed it would be good. We waited about ten minutes and were finally seated by a somewhat strange waiter. We decided to go for a couple of starters (excellent grilled haloumi cheese and stuffed mushrooms), shared a salad with cheese and... More

A quiet environment in a central spot with calming music in the background. Food quality was very good and portions were fine. The dishes were delicious; I was surprised by the smoked taste of the burger, as well by the salad with manouri cheese which was nicely coated with sesame. We also tried the pita bread with halloumi cheese, tomatoes... More

We stayed in Heraklion for 10 nights and every night went to different places. There are many nice restaurants but this one was terrible. First of all they placed us (family of 5) near kitchen door that heat was killing us.while there was plenty empty spaces. Then a miserable middle age man (who possibly was head waiter) came to us...

We ordered carbonara and bolognaise, both were very bland. We were served soup to start our meal that we did not order, it was also bland and luke warm which we were charged for. The service from one waiter was ok but the other who was the head waiter was miserable. It was more expensive than most restaurants in Heraklion... More

On our one night in Heraklion our hotel recommended several places for dinner which, when we found them, seemed more oriented towards backpackers, which was not what we were looking for. Fortunately, we had already seen reviews of Loukoulos on TripAdvisor and had it mind as a back-up. It was a warm evening in July and the courtyard was very... More

The place was quite good looking from the outside, except for the wonky and unmatching table setting. I was super hungry and took a margarita pizza. The pizza was the worst pizza I have ever seen or tasted. It was small and squishy. And as a bonus it tasted like sweat. My boyfriend took a mushroom pasta and it was... More

Hard to find this restaurant but we stumble across it and the food is magnificent. Cooked to perfection and very tasty. Prices were cheap when you consider the quality. After we had eaten, the local taxi driver said it was the best place to eat in Heraklion but it was hard for him to explain to people where to find... More

What a great meal to end our Crete holiday! We read about it in a guidebook but it said "Italian-influenced" and - as we're in Greece, not Italy - we didn't go earlier. However I walked past it just as the sun was going down, and had a look - liked what I saw and decided that's where we'd go... More
