This was our first night after walking to the old square from Koutoloufari we stummbled across the six or so restaurants around the square, they are all begging you in as you walk by its a bit like a meat market, however we had walked there so it was a bit to late to walk elsewhere so we chose this...

Where to start, loved this place. Felt a little under pressure looking around restuarants in old town, but this one, was the best. We looked in the kitchen before seated. The Kleftiko was simply scrumptious. Massive portions, great wine and bottle of raki after. Yum, yum, yum.

We visited Sofas Taverna on the last day of our holiday and wish we'd found it sooner. Set in a picturesque village we saw a real bit of Crete. The food was amazing and the friendly service from Dimitri was fantastic. Top off the very reasonable prices with a street band who serenaded us, the fabulous setting and delicious food... More

We headed to Old Hersonissos to find a restaurant for the Greek night on Monday's. We opted for Sofa's purely due to the warm welcome we received from one of the waiters who was friendly but didn't mither us to eat there. Food was very nice and service very good. The owner owns a farm and produces his own house... More

We were staying at an all inclusive hotel nearby and asked reception to recommend a really nice taverna in the old town. The restaurant is in the main square and was very busy in comparison to the others We were welcomed by the host who recommended a fantastic bottle of wine, refreshing for Greece. We ordered some cheese and spinach... More

We visited Sofas in September 2013. Old Hersonissos hosts a traditional Greek night on a Monday. Sofas is ideally located on the square with a front row view of the action as the dancing and music all takes place in the village square. We took our tour guides advice (lives in village) and arrived at 730. This was a good... More

We had cold food which had to be sent back and awful service and we even had a Greek speaker on the table to get the staff's attention, I felt sory for everyone else around us who didn't have the same luxury and struggled constantly to get peoples attention. Why not limit the menu on a Monday night to cope... More

The taxi dropped us off in Old Hersonissos and recommended Sofa. It is set in the lovely little square and so different from Hersonissos or the Port. The menu is extensive and you can eat as cheaply or spend as much as you like. The food was good but far to much so you do not need to order extra... More
