Absolutely incredible!

While on holiday to Hersonissos we found Vostalo - or rather they found us! Unlike other places we were approached as we walked past but rather than being pushy the young guy basically said have a look at our menu and if you like what you see, come eat with us - maybe tonight, maybe tomorrow... read more

I was pleased to have found this lovely looking restaurant however, i ordered pizza thinking it would be traditionally made on the premises. I was very disappointed to find it was bought and delivered to the restaurant by a local takeaway. It was extremely greasy and not enjoyable in the slightest. If i was to visit again i would be...

Thank you very much for choosing our restaurant. Everybody here in Votsalo restaurant we take pride in supporting local suppliers (meat, fish and veg.) and promote Cretan cuisine. However we are not a pizzeria, having pizza in our menu is purely to convenience some of our youth customers, and For that reason we buy only the pizza bread fresh on... More

I last visited Hersonissos 3 years ago and this was my favourite restaurant. Happy to report that is still my view this time. The setting is good - a quiet roof garden - and the service friendly and attentive, though never pushy. I still maintain that the stuffed mushrooms are the best starter I have ever had anywhere but the... More

The staff are lovely, the food is awesome, the price is great. Best food, we wish we had more time to keep returning back. We only got to go there twice. On a Monday they do lamb cooked round the fire, it was delicious. Make sure you get to try this restaurant but look up where it is as it... More

Had dinner here last night after it was recommended to me and my partner, and we were certainly glad we tried it. The food was of great quality and taste and the service was also super. Would definitely recommend it to others and we will certainly be back again during our holiday. Romantic & relaxing :)

We didn't fancy running the gauntlet of the main restaurant run so we called at Votsalo just up a side street. The owner was very helpful in explaining the dishes and his subtle twists on some popular dishes. My kleftico had melted cheese on top and the potatoes in the dish just the way I like it , loads of... More

We have always visited Votsalo to eat during our many trips to Hersonissos and we have seen the place grow. Thanks to the dedication and hard work of the owner Tolis and his wife Georgia the quality of their services has steadily increased. The beautiful setting of the terrace is supported by the delicious dishes and great wines. The service... More

I only wish we would have found this place from the beginning of our holiday and not the last day of our stay. We have eaten out twice per day at some 15+ restaurants, but none come even close to the quality of food, level of serving and hospitality that Votsalo presented. If you wish to eat at a restaurant... More

I'm sitting here on our fourth visit in 11 days having had a gorgeous meal, yet again. I can't fault anything. The staff are so friendly and the service is amazing. The food speaks for itself.
