A real Greek Restaurant in a very touristy area. You'll have a meal where fresh and unfrozen seafood is perfectly flavored. You can be sure of that. At the end of the meal fruit, 'lokma' and Create Raki offering also effort.

We went there while visiting Heraklion. The staff was very friendly and polite. Fast service even tho there were other customers. I can say for sure it was the rastiest food we had in Creta so far. Desert was free and briliant.

As a family we ordered a variety of dishes and everything was nice but not memorable. The red mullet was overcooked and the sardines were fishy. The mussels and the Scordalia were incredible and worth visiting just for these 2 dishes. The grilled octopus was...More
