We ate here on a Sunday night. It was quiet but the food was delicious! And very affordable. The owner of the restaurant was our waiter and were pretty sure his wife was the cook. The house wine was very good also. We would eat here again while in Heraklion for sure.

We ate here because it was close to our hotel. We had a pleasant meal. Sometimes when you are on the road you just need a decent meal at a restaurant that is nearby, which was the case here.

It's the second time l eat in this restaurant. Very good food, excellent family restaurant. Very peaceful, incredibly warm people and excellent "real" Cretan food. I will sure come again.

Just down the road from our hotel, a local restaurant with a family atmosphere. Only a couple of staff there on a cold Tuesday night in February. The elderly waiter/owner was hospitable and the menu was presented in English. I had excellent shrimp saganaki followed by tasty pork souvlaki. Took a while for the food to arrive but it was...

Smack on a main street, this family-run restaurant (one brother cooks, the other waits tables)is easy to find. We just stumbled onto it and were glad we did. One of the appetizers was eggplant stuffed with feta cheese and it was fabulous. Our main courses were likewise delicious. You can choose to sit inside, or outside on the patio in... More

We met a local taxi driver whilst travelling around Crete. He promised we would get authentic Cretan food here and he was right. We had a late lunch at Kiriakos consisting of a delicious fish roe dip with bread and olives, a nice souvlaki and a wonderful moussaka. This restaurant is in the centre of Herkalion, had efficient staff and... More

This Restaurant was 2 blocks away from our Hotel, and was recommended by our guide. The Restaurant is nicely decorated and very clean; the reception was good. The Menu was full of varied dishes; the waiter recommended that we check the kitchen; that was a good idea as we found a dozen of authentic Cretan homemade fresh dishes. We selected... More

The restaurant is near to the centre of Heraklion. It has a good atmosphere, quiet music, good service, tasty food and prices equal to the quality.
