Most of the menu was already out of stock at 4pm. Which would be a good sign. What was left was of mediocre quality. Neither the owner nor her staff were wearing masks. Not a place to relax and feel save during these hard times....Not recommended.More

This place is like attending to your mom’s place for lunch, love, generosity, and tasty flavor. Burgers are the best and lasagna was less tasty. Any choice is well cooked with reasonable price.

Amazing local simple food.... it reminds me of my grand mother's kitchen. The owner is so generous, she offered us free cold mineral water and and an amazing desert. Everything is fresh and made with love.... totally recommend it

We visited here on the last day of our holiday. We were in Herkalion for the Archeological Museum and looked up restaurants nearby on TripAdvisor and this one stood out because of the great reviews. They were not wrong. There doesn't seem to be a...menu, you are just shown what the specials are and you choose there and then. Most of us had the delicious aromatic meatballs with the creamiest mash and a wonderfully fresh piquant salad. The veggie options looked great, one of us had the bean stew and said it was very tasty. The youngest chose the chicken and potatoes and when they had had their fill we descended on their potatoes like a flock of vultures. I can say that whilst I have had some very good food in Crete, this was hands down the best. However, it isn't just the food that makes this place great. The people are wonderful too. It's a tiny place and we were made to feel so welcome. It's off the main tourist drag, inauspicious with limited seating. But I promise you that it is absolutely worth it. It isn't flashy, the prices are very reasonable, the staff are lovely, and the food is exceptional.More

Simple, delicious and cooked with love! What all the other 5 star reviews say is true. Delicious, value for money food presented in old fashioned Greek style. Staff are extremely friendly. Lovely.

Delicious food for a very fair price. We had lasagna with spinnachi and beef and it was fantastic - taste like home made from best quality products. The lady (owner?) is really nice and patient. Would recommend to go there - a lot of Greeks...ordering there for take away. Hard to beat for the price. Thank you! :)More

Food was delicious and owner was very friendly and kind. Mousaka and chicken was very good! Good service in a nice small greek cafe in Heraklion, and it's not expensive .
