Great lunch organised and guided by Tony. Had a chat with him and after visiting the kitchen chose the cheese saganaki with two small portions of meatballs in tomato sauce and stifado as we didn't want a huge meal. The saganaki was very good and both meat dishes were superb, tender and tasty. I would go as far as to... More

My husband and I had a most delicious lunch in the Old Hersonissos in the square. We met Tony who made you feel very welcome. I had a tasty fish salad and my husband had meat balls. It was great watching people in the square passing by. Tony made everyone feel really special and everything he did made sure his... More

All the reviews are fully justified. This is a great place to eat. Tony and his staff could not have been more helpful or friendly. The food was excellent and the location magical. During our two week holiday we went there 3 times - this, from an all inclusive hotel - because of the ambiance, service and quality of the... More

Great food, always welcomed with open arms. Look forward to the day I can bring my wife. The whole village is friendly, but this is the jewel in Old Hersonissos.

We have visited a couple of times and the quality has always been very good. The service is also superb, the family who run it are lovely and friendly. We shared a couple of starters, stuffed vine leaves and meatballs which were great. For main course I had a Gyros which was good. My wife had a lamb in the... More
