Perspective: professional chef, live in NYC. Skip this place. While the service has been reviewed as rude (and yes, he did react weirdly when for six people and two large plates of tzatziki we requested more than a single pita and every response to a request we made was responded to with "in a minute"), that could be chalked up...

The worst restaurant among all those tested in Crete. The only good thing was the decoration of the environment. Service is bad. Waiters are really rude, and arrogant. Dishes forgotten. Ordered red wine, received white wine instead. A presumed head waiter who scolds the waiters in front of people. The food quality is not different from other local places which... More

I decided to place a dinner for my British friends, very close during Christmas. Being a native I visited the place few more times in the past, but I must state that this time is the "last nail on the coffin" ...! The owner is unkind, as well the staff...you request something and you have to request it twice since... More

Just a couple of blocks from Heraklion's fantastic museum, Loukoulos is a lovely casual oasis, with good food, attentive service, and an expansive menu. Terrific soups and salads.

Hidden down a quiet little side street is a flowery outdoors garden with pretty green lights. The free soup is a bit random as they want to charge you for bread so give you something to dip it in. Many people look round confused when given it as it is not well explained. Scam if you ask me. Food we... More

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
