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 Interior and interior court are very nice, maybe a bit outdated.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

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

I had a completely different experience at Loukoulos compared to some other reviews that I just read. Hubby and I were hungry, but wanted to go elsewhere for dinner later so we did not want to order too much and become too full. At the time we were there (late afternoon), for awhile we were the only customers. Our server... 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.

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 boring. The environment... More

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
