We ate here on our last night in Crete. Wish we had discovered it before. The food was delicious! If we go back to Crete, we'll definitely go here again!!

Situated off the very busy Main Street of Hersonissos is this traditional family run taverna. The owner is friendly and chatty and the food freshly cooked in traditional style. It was a pleasant oasis of calm in the hubbub of the town.

Tucked away behind the main street, .. but good Lord the quality food, friendly service and great raki more than compensates for the lack of view.

I honestly can’t believe this isn’t rated the best restaurant in Hersonissos. We visited twice, we had to.. we couldn’t stop going on about that baked feta from the oven. I had chicken souvlaki and my boyfriend had a mixed grill one night and a...More

If you’re looking for somewhere away from the Main Street from some real traditional Greek food, head right here. The service is incredible, the food is gorgeous and the setting is so nice away from the flashing lights and busy streets on the front. Would...More

We visited the Avli Taverna twice on our week long holiday – wish we’d have found it sooner so we could have gone more times than that. The food was amazing, much better than the tourist traps on the seafront. We wanted to try as...More

For us this was by far the best restaurant in Heronissos. It’s not on the seafront, hence the hidden, which is a shame. You’ll find it off the main highstreet just past 2 Chinese/Indian restaurants. The food is superb. A must- go for the special...More

The food here is by far the best we had. It's very tasty, we especially love the shrimp in garlic. But all the other dishes were excellent as well. The hospitality and kindness of the owners is unique. A trip to Crete is not complete...More
