A friendly member of staff, or possibly the owner, was walking out of the place at the time and let us know that they would open in April. It looks like great restaurant, we were gutted to have missed it.

It's an atmospheric place in a residential area, quite hidden from the main tourist draws in the center of Heraklion. It resembles a village taverna. You can easily see this is a labor of love. Typical Greek food, plenty of meat dishes, as well as...More
