One of the best restaurant in Heraklion. Situated in the city centre in a very cozy little square. It's a family business and the personnel is very gentle and friendly. They frequently create new dishes and the food is presented very well. If you are looking for a greek restaurant but with a different touch from the tourists ones, than you are in the right place. Fish is the speciality of the restaurant, it's always fresh and they offer a big variery from which you can choose. Don't miss the fried deep prawns with majo and rice shaped pasta ('manestraki') with feta cheese and shrimps and last but not least the spectular home made cheesecake. The restaurant also serves many meat plates, the meat cones with cheese and vegetables are delicious. It's open untill late. The prices are a bit about the greek average but it's definitely well worth it!

Quietly located off the main pedestrian street, this place had a bit of charm above the general standard of cuisine and service. Priced a little higher than average but worth it. Ate once and attempted to return a week later but it hosted a local wedding party (a good sign). Fresh fish and the usual Cretan selections, but a proper pizza oven and a very capable kitchen. Attentive staff and good atmosphere and setting both indoor and out in a pleasant courtyard. Actual tablecloths!

This restaurant combines creative cuisine with all the flavors of local high quality ingredients.Although Sea food is at its best with imaginative spirit that will surprise the most demanding palet, meat dishes of equal flavorful depth are on the menu. Love for the ingredients and attention to detail are only some of the characteristics of this restaurant. The service is excellent and always willing to help and advise you on the menu choices. Dont be afraid to try different tastes. You will be astonished how simple flavors can take you on a culinary flavorful journey. Dishes like the Manestraki, the Ink Pasta and the Venus Clams are a Must. One more plus is that it does not differentiate between local and touristic clientel.

Congratulations and Keep up the good work.

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!
