Beautiful environment, nice food

This used to be maybe the best restaurant in town during the 90's but now it is just o.k. Most of their dishes are nice but average. Maybe the best dishes are the various steaks, the homemade soup and the fresh fish (while it is really fresh). The menu is classic but a little old fashioned and... read more

Lovely setting, nice music interesting looking menu, but..... Food was mediocre to say the least and I was presented with a starter I did'nt order, told it was complementary only to find it included on the bill. Asked for a small caraff of wine only to be presented, and charged, with a large caraff (came in an unmarkedjug, making it... More

Low quality food. On top of it some food item had probably partially gone bad or was contaminated because we were all sick that night and the day after. Avoid this place even if you are starving.

stopped for lunch. Ordered veg soup and salad. It seemed to take a long time to get the food we ordered. he soup was OK but the greens were spotted dark and some brown spots. It tasted bitter. When I mentioned it to the waiter he asked if we wanted a new salad I refused. I then asked him for... More

My wife and I ate here one evening at about 1830. The restaurant has many rooms and looks atmospheric. We ate outside. We paid 2 euros for bread but this comprised 4 tiny hard crusts of bread - very disappointing when you can go to Dish (a nearby restaurant) and pay 90c for very tasty home-made bread rolls. My wife... More

This restaurant was recommended to us on the fly last night by our waitress at a nearby wine bar. The outdoor patio dining area was off the most touristy streets but well-located. The four of us (wife, two adult daughters and me) had a slow, delightful dinner with attentive service and excellent food. I just checked out Trip Advisor to... More

When the restaurant opened in 1991 brought gourmet gastronomy to the city for the first time but through the years it changed a lot. Nothing is the same any more. The cuisine is Mediterranean and Cretan. I was here with close friends, a group of 6. Ambience nice. The service was not attentive at all. The menu seems rich but... More

Pleasant looking house in Heraklion. Nice waiters. Very disparate furniture - old-ish tables in many styles, diner-like sofas, green lighting, all to the best effect. Beers do not include the most common one in Crete, so you have to make do with the rest. Very long wait to order, longer wait to get served.... even the bread. 15mn to get... More
