“Excellent dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

We went to the restaurant at 10.30 pm and only few customers were dining.
We ordered bread as a starter, one portion was enough for the two of us. I ordered Laughing Pig's Chicken.My wife ordered the eggplants with feta cheese in owen (in a small pot). My dish was excellent, wife liked her's too but there was some mint in the dish that wasn't for her. Lovely cholate mousse and whipped cream ended the meal. Service was frienly and quick. And the bill was really reasonable. Try it!

“Excellent dinner and staff is so friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

We decided to eat at the Laughing Pig after reading about it on trip advisor.
We made the right decision. They were welcoming from the moment we sat down. They first brought cretan bread with 4 complimentary dips (beet spread, garlic/herb spread, pickled carrots/peppers, and garlic oil tomato spread. The chef came over and immediately starting talking to us and was very nice. We then started off with garlic/cream mushrooms which were great. We started eating them and then the chef came over and apologized that he forgot the garlic (we hadn't noticed) he felt so bad and made another fresh one in 5 minutes. We then had the moussaka and chicken laughing pig (breast of chicken stuffed with ground meat and wrapped with bacon). Both dishes were top notch. The meal ended with complimentary chocolate mousse dessert and of course raki- which they infused with an herb to make it sweeter and it was delicious. Our only complaints were the portions were really too much. We felt like we were wasting food. We also thought the halogen lights were a little hot. Overall a great greek meal, with added service, which you don't find everywhere and a definite twist of creativity which was a welcomed plus. Don't miss this restaurant if in Agia Marina. We walked from our hotel Thalassa. For the portions and service this place was inexpensive. They do not take credit cards.

“Excellent food, service and value!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

We tried this place early in our first stay in Crete and was not disappointed. The mousakka there is delicious! Food is properly made in traditional greece way, and service is great. A+
