Promises more than it delivers

Wish I'd read other reviews before we went in but we were seduced by the pretty surroundings. The food was indifferent although my husband's chicken was good. My ,bio' salad with cheese, honey and sesame was a plate of enormous leaves dressed with a sharp vinaigrette and meagre sesame covered... read more

The rude staff gave us a table far away from everyone else and then ignored us. The food was poor and the starter and main came at the same time.

We decided to go in this restaurant appealed by their organic menu. It was a bit more pricey than the other restaurants but the atmosphere seemed quite good. Good music, the waiter was a bit weird but that was ok. The garden was nice. We did not check the reviews on tripadvisor before going and that was a mistake. We... More

We were passing by and saw signs for a set lunch, €10 to €12 for a mixed starter, souvlaki or fish with a glass of wine. It wasn't advertised at the table so we had to ask for it but the waiter seemed happy to oblige. The food was good and the courtyard setting was great, hard to complain about... More

I loved the garden. It is romantic and relaxing but our waiter did not know much about what he was doing and I think there were two things we didn't enjoy at all one was that the waiter took the plates away so quickly that once he did not even asked if we were done and the other is that... 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
