Typical Cretan dishes very well prepared and with their own “twist”. Very good service and situated in a quaint little side street near the Heraklion center near the City Hall and the St-Titus Church and the famous Lion’s fountain. We went on the recommendation of...a local gentleman who told us “this is place I go to hang out with my friends for good Typical Cretan” meze and food. He was very tightMore

Remarks for correction: -very noisy from near bar - nice dishes set (restaurant level) but do not well combinated with knifes and forks (taverna level) - welcoming bread was not grilled before served, so we ask...to do it - done! - too many raisins in salad ....More

The wine was fine but service was ok-ish. It seemed like he didn’t understand us at al times but here and there he made a mistake. But then we ordered our food and that’s where it al took a wrong turn. It took quite some...time before we got our food, but only one of us got our food. Then it took like ten more minutes before two others got their food and then even ten more minutes later the last of us got their food. But then the waiter told us one of the dishes wasn’t available all of sudden. That’s when we decided to leave. Overal it was beneath averageMore

Even with so many restaurants in Heraklion, we liked our experience so much that we went twice within our 3 day trip. Both times we ordered a salad and two dishes from the hot mezze part of the menu and the portions were perfect for...the two of us, all at a very reasonable price. The complimentary dessert and raki is always a plus!More

I’m a foodie - so far I’ve not been impressed by Grecian food. The dolmade and grilled squid were awesome. The vege with the squid I thought a touch over salted but that is a personal preference. Fabulous food, service and vibe. The people watching...of the alley way clientele was a great accompanimentMore

Very tasty food! I had their Dakos and Greek Salad, portions were generous and tasted very fresh. The quality of the food was great, just as the service. Complimentary Raki and a small dessert as per standard Greek costumes. The dessert, despite being free, was...of very high standard, fresh and tasted amazing. Very affordable prices and quality food! Highly recommend this place!More

Koukouvagia was the perfect place for a light dinner. We ordered the Greek salad, the Koukouvagia salad, and dolmades. The food was excellent and so was the beer - Mamos (brewed in Greece). The service was great and the atmosphere was very nice. Prices were...reasonable, and our dinner was topped off with gratis raki and a small dessert.More

After visiting a different restaurant in Heraklion every evening, we went to Koukouvagia. We were astonished by the quality of the food and the excellent combination of the different flavours. A must-visit in Heraklion!

Portions are not that big as in typical Greek restaurants here, but quite enough. Taste is really good, and also location - in the Heraklion city center. I would recommend visting it for dinner or lunch.
