We went for a dinner in this very good looking restaurant, nice lights, green everywhere, quite music, everything perfect - on the first sight. We (my colleague and me) saw at the front door that there is a daily menu offering with 3 starters and a fish. We decided to take it because we were very hungry and thought that... More

Nice restaurant with a bit of space outside in nice enough atmosphere. Very centrally located but still a bit off the main streets. Food was not exceptional but good (grilled halloumi, catch of the day swordfish, awesome bottled dark local beer), service was friendly. Not a place I would visit twice when only staying a few days, but good enough... More

My boyfriend and I are in Crete for only 48hrs so we were trying restaurants based on atmosphere and what was available to me as a vegetarian. The staff were really nice and I don't understand the bad reviews. My bf had lamb kotsi (shank) and he loved it. I had a simple spaghetti and we shared a bottle of... More

We were five friends who ordered a sampling of dishes to share. We could not decide what was best. It was such a wonderful experience we came back another day and were not disappointed! We obviously were enjoying the meal so much that the waiter brought us an extra appetizer, wine and dessert at no charge!

This restaurant has a high rating on TA and we were not disappointed. Oven baked make to order bread and tzatziki gave us a good start, than oven made lamb and almost 2 inches thick grouper brought us to heaven. Waiter Andreas gave us historical review about name of this restaurant and botanical excursion of the herbal plants which are... More

We had a excellent dinner. All courses (stuffed mushrooms, salad, cheese plate, pasta, fresh bream) were delicious and the service was attentive. They provided several extras for free--soup, bread, aperitif. The atmosphere was very elegant, yet comfortable. We highly recommend this restaurant.

After all this TV formats on cooking nowadays it seems more important to have a nice décor than to pay attention to the menu. We think that first of all it would be compulsory to have good food with excellent ingredients. As we were in Crete, we hoped they treated the treasure cultivated in their land in the correct way....

We had our dinner on a Saturday night. There was a great piano player. Nice thought! But ... the food did not meet our expectations. Instead the sea bass fillet I ordered, they brought me the whole fish ... and the sevice was late.

was one of the top restaurants in Heraklion. Now the quality overall is terrible. Had a lunch last summer : never eat so bad in Heraklion, service unfriendly. Before we had nice dinner there. The nice tablecloathes are gone, the fish was not completely unfrozen. Such a bad experience never again

We have been visiting this restaurant for many years for lunch and have always been impressed with the standard of food and service. Good selection of vegetarian options for me. Expensive for Greece, but well worth it. A good choice for a special occasion. There is a lovely outdoor dining area for the warm evenings, but the interior dining space... More
