5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

I love this restaurant because we can have big variety of local dishes cooked in real local way and also many european plates (the best snitzel ever!!!)
They have got their own olive oil, which is excellent quality
Next to the sea,,open all day since early in the morning

“Great chips and view”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

We visited Zorbas in Ierapetra in early september and ordered calamari and a club sandwich. The chips that came with the meals were lovely but the rest was average. The staff were very friendly and as with a lot of waterfront restaurants in Crete the view was beautiful.

“Zorbas beside Libyan sea!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2012

Zorbas placed at the main touristic boulevard at the both sides of the road with a restaurant hall and an open veranda at the other side of the road. At veranda are two section for restaurant and cafe and drinks too. We visited Ierapetra midday and took time for drinks and cooling momnet at the hottest day of August. Great fresh orange juice from the local fruits. Very comfortable place and well position. Libyan sea crystal clean even at the most visited area of the city. Restaurant part well decorated with both typical colors of Greece: Blue and white....
