This Greek family welcomes every guest with home-made tzatziki and bread. The menu is varied and ranges from traditional Greek gyros (€6,50) to a mixed fish plate (€13,00) using fresh local fish. The service is excellent. The family recognizes you when you pop by for a second (third, fourth...) time, truly does their best to satisfy the guests and makes... More

We said that we didn't want the bread. The man said OK and took the bread away. Nevertheless we were charged for the bread ( + 2 Euro). Go where the locals eat - Heraklion. There the bread is included.

Food rather ordinary, little atmosphere, anonymous service. Acceptable food but nothing to write home about.

I must, must tell of my amazing experience here, We stayed in Amoudara at the Lili Hotel for one week in May, We visited Uncle Georges at least twice a day and the service was beyond recognition. Costas and his wife are the most genuine and caring people you will ever meet, nothing is ever too much and they are... More

Located on the main street in Amoudara (Andreas Papandreou) it has a large garden with trees and a fountain with a sculpture- perhaps Uncle George-. I Suppose it is a family run restaurant. The services are excellent. The food is like homemade. Try as starter the wine-leaves filled with rice home made. But there are also many other Greek specialties... More

This place is very welcoming. The owners make you feel appreciated. You want to come back again and again. The guests feel like family. Had a very nice lunch. The garden is lovely.

A continental is bread and jam, a full 'english' is bacon and beans. Waste of money and pictures are totally misleading.

We have eaten at Uncle George's many times and can recommend this gem of a taverna to anyone. By far the best food in Amoudara and probably the friendliest service too thanks to Kostas and Artemis. This year we chose to stay self-catering so we eat in Uncle George's every night. See you next year!
