Scallops will stay with you

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... read more

We arrived earlier than we would have liked. We wanted to escape the cold wind. But technically the restaurant was not yet open, but instead of waiting 45 minutes, we were seated immediately, and allowed to order. The service was extremely friendly and efficient. The food was good; the ambien, pleasant, and the price extremely reasonable.

very nice atmosphere, romantic, nice music. It was expected that dishes would be exceptional as the decoration, but the menu was a usual one.

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...
