This is definitely one of our best meals in Greece. The ingredients were so fresh and excellently prepared. The tea with Cretan herbs and honey was amazing. We each had a different type of home made Cretan pasta and each enjoyed ours tremendously. Don’t miss...dessert!More

A place with beautiful decoration, frienly people, excellent service and the most tasty food I had ever ate. Also, the live music by two local musicians was a perfect touch!

Heraklion has many good restaurants with a lively atmosphere, but there's a sameness to them. We stumbled on Hairi when we were looking for something different. The space is beautiful with high ceilings and well spaced wooden tables. My husband and I tried grilled mushrooms,...dakos, grilled vegetables, and rooster stew; all were well made and well seasoned with great ingredients and came on beautiful plates. We were brought a sampling of delicious desserts along with the usual raki. The service was friendly and attentive but we weren't pestered. Go here!More

Last year we visited this amazing restaurant in the center of Heraklion by chance, and were blown away. This time we wanted to check out the cuisine after the restaurant's amazing chef had moved on. Well, the Cretan restaurant has not lost a step. The...service was super friendly and amazing, AGAIN. The salads and starters fresh as the proverbial daisy, only made up of fresh products from the local farms around Heraklion. The atmosphere was the same as we remembered it, stunning and relaxed while being warm and classy at the same time. And the mains were perfect. I had blackened tomahawk pork chop that was mouthwatering. My wife Mig made an amazing grilled mushroom starter her main, and she raved about the exquisite taste. Another topper for the evening was the fact that Hairi carries the fine wines of Nikos Gavalas, one of the most innovative and best winemakers in all Greece. Other wine card magic will please first-time guests too. Cretan wines are amazing. So, it just goes to show that a great restaurant can remain great even if there's a middle of the stream chef change. Thanks for a great evening you guys.More

We had a splendid time in this place. The design is nice, the service very friendly. The Food is fine, sometimes a little frugal though (the homemade cretan Pasta for example). Very good wine selection. We hope, this place makes it over the first season....We would come back.More

We stayed for our last dinner in Hairi. It is really a great, authentic place with very friendly waiters. The food is delicious, but simple. Live music was played in a wonderful way. All in all, a wonderful end to a wonderful holiday on Crete

In a quiet area. Various and good appetizers. Excellent lamb slow-cooked with potatoes. At the end desert and raki from the house. Low-volume traditional music.

It was just really great. The people were very friendly and there even was a live band playing. Everything seemed really athentic and the food was very delicious. At the end of dinner the bill came in accompaniment with Raki and a dessert ond the...house. So in conclusion: 10/10 would go again and I would absolutely recommend giving it a try!More
