We ate here because of the TripAdvisor recommendations. Arriving we were the only costumer for quite awhile. while enjoying our salad and wine is when we noticed that there was no other restaurant staff except our server (I mean none at all). I became rightfully concerned about how our server was going to cook our meal while also taking care of the other party that had just arrived. That's when, while going to the restroom, that i noticed a number of buffet trays full of food, sitting on top of a table in the kitchen. although admittedly our food was not bad the fact that it was pre-made was slightly worrisome. Now maybe this just something that they do in the off season, but regardless heads up.

Very pleasant place, with very tasty Greek food, feeling like home-made. A lit bit of the center meaning quite. Very good service and reasonable prices

When we sat down, the owner insisted that we come with him to the kitchen to pick out our food. Many dishes were prepared (needed to be in advance otherwise cooking time would be too long). We literally picked out what we wanted by site.

The food tasted like we were eating a home cooked dinner at a relatives home. Very reasonable and be sure to get the local Cretan wines, as they are not expensive and are very good.

They know the best places to eat and there were plenty of them today at lunch! Nice Greek restaurant with goooooood food. In similar style to what we've experienced around Greece, they show you what has been prepared for the day (means it's fresh) and then you make your selection.

We just came from Athens having seen Delphi, Kalambaka and Nafplion so we've been eating our way round Greece. Our hotel is on the same street so for a two night stay in Crete place is perfect.

Very clean, lots of smiles greeting you, cheap and fast service.

We arrived late into Iraklio and wandered down to this restaurant at 10 pm. The owner waved us in took us into his kitchen to have a look and explained all his dishes. We were ravenous and I could have eaten a horse ! I had veal in tomato sauce with a potato, spinach and artichoke side. The veal was so tender you didn't need a knife. My sister had the moussaka and said it was the best she'd had in all greece! The price was great (the same meal in Australia would have cost 3 times that much), so much cheaper than santorini and better food! We'll be back. Thanks
