“A great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

We arrived completely by accident to this restaurant very central in Heraklion. It was quite a surprise: beautifully decorated, the interiores gave a sense of confort and tranquility while the staff was very friendly.
The food was amazing. The menu offered plenty meat dishes and some vegetarian options. As my girfriend is vegetarian we opted to order several starters and one salad with grilled goat cheese and i did not missed the meat :)
This restaurant produces its own bread in the oven and one side dish was grilled vegetables and mushrooms in charkoal - absolutely delicious. They also have their own wine. if you want to have a great greek food experience I strongly recomend this restaurant!

“Everything just right.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

Dined here twice during my recent holiday in Crete, and I can honestly say that this is the only restaurant I have ever been to ANYWHERE, where everything was absolutely spot on. The food excellent, superb lamb and best grilled vegetables I've ever had, the wine from their own vines, first rate and great value, the service was friendly and attentive but not intrusive. Greek without the fuss. If your going to Heraklion - this is the restaurant.
