This time we had 2 fish dishes their green salad and a local dish called stuffed anthoi Which very well cooked. The sea view is relaxing so try to have a table facing the sea. If you are unfortunate to have a street table you will have to bear the stream of cars. Their treat of fruits and sweets is... More

We had only a short time in heraklion to get lunch so trusted to trip adviser and went to Paralia. They were just setting up the tables as we arrived, but we're happy to serve us. We had a Greek salad, grilled sardines and a seafood linguini - all of which were beautifully prepared. We were then given Loukoumades (Greek... More

Very nice food and friendly staff! The dessert of the house was delicious - and I do not even appreciate sweets! Recommended for a relaxed meal.

Followed by... More

We went to this place for a quick afternoon snack/lunch. We had a fruit salad and gyros dish. Both were served in a more than sufficient portion (wouldn't recommend the gyros as evening meal if you're really hungry). Great value for money. The gyros tasted really tender and was spiced just right with typically Greek herbs, no tough pieces of... More

We only had time to stop in for a refreshment drink but it was very nice, proper fresh fruit juice. The two men working were both polite and quick to serve us. Thank you
