During our stay in Crete this summer, my friends and I decided to go sightseeing in Knossos and Heraklion too. After a while, we felt like tasting something refreshing and delicious somewhere in the town. While approaching the old Venetian port we spotted a nice terrace slightly hidden in the street on our left.
The Restaurant Ladokolla is worth discovering its original interior; for example cutlery-like droplights, swimsuit hanging from the ceiling in the restrooms, colourful walls inside, etc. All of these, together with a skillful chef, make Ladokolla a must for everyone who wants to touch real Cretan savour. We personally really appreciated grilled Halloumi cheese for appetizer and then chose some of the dishes with fresh fish of the day. To conclude, the waitress was obliging and service fast. We all do recommend Ladokolla to every single tourist who may feel like a gourmet there.

Just the type of food our family was looking for. I tried all the top restaurants while in Crete and this was simply the best. It is a lovely, welcoming family that run the restaurant, with Mama as the head chef. The seafood, the pastas and salads were unbelievably fresh yet simple ingredients with beautiful flavors. The dishes tasted as if prepared with love. It is modern Greek seafood cuisine where you eat feeling at home! We ate here twice and we shall return!

Tasty food, kind service and good prices!
These three have a good balance at this restaurant...
Try the "schnitzel with the flakes"... Is very interesting!

Really nice dining experience! Make sure you book your table early and get it outside on the terrace. Easy to find! Retsina wine cheap & very enjoyable! Try feta cheese plates, really good!
Only complaint, please put on your menu - baby squid!! I missed that!
And remember if you order plenty of food, you will get free dessert at the end!

This restaurant is the best place where to eat raw seafood in Heraklio. I've tried other very good restaurants there, but quality was not as high, although prices were.

Clams are excellent! The other dishes are very good too: meat, vegetables. House white wine fits perfectly (haven't tasted the red). Prices are low. Service is good and the atmosphere is pleasant.

Despite the location is quite a touristic area and one would expect an equally touristic restaurant, this place is attended by many locals. Better book a table...
