Description: Here's the finest "balcony" in the city embraced by the soft breeze of the Cretan Sea, offering the most beautiful panoramic views of the old city harbor and the Venetian fortress you'll ever see. The inspired menu primes your palate for fresh fish and seafood cooked to perfection, tender meats, refreshing vegetables and season salads, fine appetizers accompanied by ouzo or raki, and a variety of fine wines.

After walking a bit of Heraklion, our expectation level was not high. We were staying down the road & this was an easy option. Seated at a window table, the harbor view was very nice. Our waiter was a tad pretentious but the food quality & presentation & wine selection were all much better than we thought going in. Not cheap, but not crazy either.

Had a wonderful meal in this beautiful relaxed setting on June 10, 2014. View of the harbor, town and water was picturesque before and after sunset. The wine, the salad and our entrees (pork and rabbit) were phenomenal. Prices were reasonable given the great quality and location. Service was helpful and friendly.

On so many fronts this is an excellent place to eat, my only regret is that we won't have another opportunity to do so on this trip :(
The menu is modern yet true to the 'real Cretan' food.
Our entrees were to die for and the lamb served for main was melt in the mouth meat. Not sure when I have tasted lamb this good.
To top it all off, the prices are extremely reasonable, so so much cheaper than what we would pay at home in Australia for the same quality of food.
You won't be disappointed !!!

Very welcoming and service minded staff, who made us very comfortable. Great food with a twist of the mediterranean kitchen. The view is perfect over the port and old fort. We ate there sunday night in june about 9, and there was not a lot of people. All in all a great night out!
