Our party of 21 enjoyed a meal here. The age range was between 6 - 87. We ordered Greek meze and were not disapointed. The food came thick and fast and at one point we had to ask the owner to slow down bringing the dishes! All the dishes were cooked in front of us in an open oven/fire. Would... More

I was in Crete at the end of season so everywhere was quiet. Staying in Koutouloufari I decided to venture to the Old Village of Hersonissos one night for dinner (don't confuse with the new town this village is up on the hill). There is a number of taverns set around the village square and though not busy there was... More

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

On arrival you are greeted by George and his beautiful wife and family. He never forgets a face or a name, and the atmosphere makes you feel home. The Menu has a large variety, from Greek traditional cooking to international cuisine. Sofas serves Breakfast, lunch and dinner. The portions are quite large and the wine is one of the best... 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
