Although I hadn't earn in every restaurant in Agios Pelagia it was clear that Kri Kri was a absolute cut above the rest by comparing it with those that I had eaten at and looking at the menus of every restaurant in Pelagia. I ate at Kri Kri 5 times. Food is well presented and delicious and George cooks most... More

I was alarmed to read a couple of reviews who insulted the owner. No time for people like that. Both the food and staff were superb. The prices are a little bit more expensive- but when was seafood ever cheap? We enjoyed the atmosphere, the host and the food, going straight for main dishes of seafood linguine cooked right in...

Nothing to say about the food quality beside maybe the tuna carpacio that was not the tastiest. For the grilled fish, we have been recommended one among several (dauradea, sea bass,...). The comment was "very good, not so expensive". While enquiring price, the only answer I got was "not too expensive". As a result the fish was 71€, which is... More

It is totally worth paying a bit more to eat at this restaurant! The food is so so good. We visited Kri Kri on our last day in Crete and what a way to end our trip! It is more up market than the other restaurants on the beach but definitely worth every penny. If you are in Agia Pelagia,... More

Food was excellent. We both had the specials- Spaghetti with clams and swordfish with salad. Very fresh and excellent value. Service was friendly with the chef greeting the guests individually and preparing the fish in the middle of the restaurant. Would definitely recommend and visit again

Having read the extremes of reviews on here (many 5 stars but a fair few 1 star too) it took us a few days to actually visit Kri Kri. Wish we had gone every night. Simply the best seafood I've ever had, this restaurant is head and shoulders above the rest at Ayia Palagia and worth a visit even if... More

Quite an exceptional find. At the end of the row of restaurants in Agia Pelagia. George, the owner and excellent chef, will look after all your needs. His wine recommendations were great and the food cook to your taste. George explained that he recently worked in Switzerland during the winter months, but now concentrates running his restaurant full-time. He's always... More

This is a very attractive restaurant with a good menu, particularly if you're fond of fresh fish and seafood. It's a little upmarket form the standard taverna and slightly more expensive than the norm, but not by much, and the quality is good. A nice touch is the open cooking range within the restaurant where the chef prepares some of... More

Description
Welcome to Kri Kri Restaurant In Kri-Kri, Greeks and foreigners enjoy seafood dishes of high aesthetics and matter. An inside secret, excellent materials, solitude and meditation in the kitchen during the morning hours and the creation of many dishes in two times: the last additions and the execution of special wishes of the customer happen in a second phase in front of him. George Zaharioudakis is always there, so visitors can watch him cook. If come across any noise, don't be surprised: it could be all 16 chefs of the presidents of the USA, Saudi Arabia, Venezuela and many other countries who have honoured the "master" with their presence.
