Excellent restaurant in a beautiful place. The seafood is delicious and it is even possible to ask to combine two items - I got a plate with one half of shrimps and another half of calamari. The staff is very welcoming.

We were privileged to dine at Gorgona on multiple occasions. The fish was fresh, well-prepared and delicious. The fact that you can swim and then have lunch a few feet away is priceless! Thank you to Monoli for the hospitality!

Locations is great, right on the beach. Recommended by locals, it proved to be the best quality-price wise on this long Crete trip yet. Good service, everything we ordered was perfect.

Just another turist-trap. When I asked what the owner suggested I eat he just read the whole ment for me.. Took them forever to bring the check too because he didn't want an empty table.. I was disappointed.

If you are looking for traditional Cretan food, you may walk away from this place. Everything is average, the food, quality of service and view. Prices are low but service is very slow on a empty restaurant. To put in a nushell : basic.
