This was by far our favourite meal whilst we were in Hersonissos. We ordered 7 mezzes, 2 diet cokes and a pint of Mythos and the bill came to 31 euros!!!!!!! They give you a list, like a shopping list, and you write numbers down the side of how many you want of each, then it comes out when it... More

This is not a review about the food and the Vegera place at all, it is more about the ignorance and indolence of the staff and the system of the place itself. Seemed like ordinary Cretan evening, people are going out for a dinner, places on the way are kind of busy, filled but not full. When we came to... More

David Vegara's is a fantastic, very informal little restaurant. It is no frills, but the food is out of this world. It very much comes across as a family-run restaurant that is thriving because of the quality of its food and the warm welcome. The food is meze/tapas-style, giving everyone a chance to try a range of dishes - make... More

We holidayed for a fortnight close to David's and tried a few restaurants close by and few further away... But without doubt this is the best we had several meals here as it's inexpensive and very good quality with superb service. They had snails on the menu that I have never tried and asked if I could have just one... More

David and his family members are what Greek food is all about. The food is exceptional. If you haven't had a greek meze before this is the place to go. We took fteinds there for a new experience and thay had a fabulous meal. All the dishes are ordered individualy and I would not order more than one of each... More

I'm greek visiting for years from abroad where I work now, but i'll write in English as the Greeks know this place. Simple: the best greek food anywhere. Fresh; good portions; service; and authentic. Been here near 30 years and the only place in the village people queue for 30+ minutes to eat at. Why? Because Lefteri and his family... More

Our hotel recommended this restaurant The taxi driver also knew it well and said it was excellent. We could not phone in advance for a reservation. When you go, you will see why!!! Don't think they have a phone. It is a traditional Taverna with a difference. The waiter does not take your order but gives you a form with... More

This place was recommended by some people at our hotel so we tried it, go early though so you don't have to queue! We went at like half 6 and got seated straight away but it gets busy from 7pm onwards with queues up the street. The food was really nice but not going to lie, we had better and... More

This is definitely the best Meze-place in Crete! It's the place locals go to, and most of the time it's so packed you'll find yourself waiting in line to get a table. If you're looking for fine dining, this is not the place. If, however, you're looking for good meze in a wonderful atmosphere, in one of the nicest small... More

On advice from my Father and Mother I was a place we had to try whilst on Holiday in Hersonissos,Crete. After a walk up the hill from our apartment and a short walk down the road we found Davids. Its not a large place but it was full when we got there at 20:30. We asked the waiter if there... More
