Lovely spot on the Old Hersonissos square, food was lovely and really nice atmosphere. We booked in advance as the restaurant always looked very busy. Service was a bit slow but we didn’t mind.

All the dishes we had where a 10 out of 10. Lamb, meatballs, local made house wine and raki, perfectly served! I recommend everyone to go check out this humble but delicious spot in old Hersonissos.

We ate here twice in this holiday and once 9 years ago. The food was absolutely yummy/ fantastic and really good value for money. On both occasions this year the staff were very funny and friendly, with excellent service. We even bought presents from the...shop.An excellent choice for a dinner out in the beautiful square! Love Myrtios for its friendly feel and great food!More
