Dishes were average, but nothing special.

When the restaurant opened in 1991 brought gourmet gastronomy to the city for the first time but through the years it changed a lot. Nothing is the same any more. The cuisine is Mediterranean and Cretan. I was here with close friends, a group of 6. Ambience nice. The service was not... read 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

This restaurant was recommended to us on the fly last night by our waitress at a nearby wine bar. The outdoor patio dining area was off the most touristy streets but well-located. The four of us (wife, two adult daughters and me) had a slow, delightful dinner with attentive service and excellent food. I just checked out Trip Advisor to... More

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 served.... even the bread. 15mn to get... 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...
