We ate here on our last night in Crete hoping to make it a special meal. It was also the weekly Monday music and dancing night in Old Hersonissos where the village square is packed. We had been recommended Sofas and duly booked ahead as we knew everywhere would be busy. We were greeted well and shown to a nice... More

I ate here as part of a group of twelve on the weekly Greek night, which was the last night of my holiday. The food was excellent, and was easily the best I had on my two week stay in Greece, and I wish I had discovered the restaurant sooner. Also, considering I was part of a large group, the... More

The village tends to come alive every Monday night when the coach parties descend on this historic village for the greek dancing night. To be honest, on that night all the restaurants are packed and don't have to maje much effort. This place though does. You are presented with an extensive menu and, as long as you swerve the pizza/pasta... More

We went there for lunch. We had hamburger or the little one and mix meze for us. Everything was tasty and came out very quickly. The service was friendly and the price totally alright. Can't say anything negative but it wasn't anything special. Its a safe choice

Lovely restaurant in the main square. They have great wine list and large menu, so something for everyone! Highly recommend going for the traditional Greek foods, I had beef and onion stew, the meat was outstanding. Moussaka was also very tasty. Good service, with complimentary fruit and raki. Highly recommend visiting here for a meal!
