Loukoulos is one of the oldest restaurants in the old part of the city, try to find it in the small roads with the cafes bars and restaurants. The quality of food is very good. The waiters are nice smiling guys, the only bad point is that our order delayed for 40minutes...

Great decor in nice setting so thought food would be good too!! It's not! Random bowl of soup given as bread starter! Ordered sea food spaghetti dish and was given frozen prawns! Hubby's food was tough lamb chops! Not good!! Avoid at all costs if you want authentic Greek meal!

We loved the little street that this restaurant was on but it was a disappointment itself. They brought us soup and bread which we did not order but then charged us for it. The food was definitely sourced locally but was not up to the quality we had in other nearby restaurants. We ordered the scallops but what we received... More

Although the menu looks tasty, the service is very bad. Rude waiter with a 'cool' attitude that brings you whatever he wants and not what you ordered, not to mention that it took 30 min from starter to main dishes to arrive and then over 20 min to have our finished dishes taken away! The owner with white pony tail... More

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
