“cracking little place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2014

This restaraunt is in a brilliant location on the front by the port, looking out to sea and the Venetian fortress. So you would imagine it to be expensive - and you would be wrong. Not only are the prices reasonable, but also the portions are colossal! lovely fresh food and you can hardly move after, it has its tripadvisor staus proudly displayed and it lives up to it. look it up.

“Nice View”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2014 via mobile

We could see a nice ocean view from the restaurant through the plastic glass although the persons sitting under the sun shine looked hot and dazzled. We ordered fried calamari and grilled lamb and they were good. I recommend this restaurant.

“Still excellent restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2013

We visited this restaurant last year, and really enjoyed the meals there. So, we decided to visit them again in October this year. Again, we enjoyed the meals so much. In particular, we fell in love with their "free of charge" dessert called Loukoumathes (honey puffs) with ice cream. This was an exquisite dessert in Crete.
We recommended this restaurant to our friends who were also visiting Crete, and eventually they ended up visiting the restaurant twice in their 4-day stay.

If you visit there by a car, I recommend you to ask one of their staff for parking space. When I parked my hired car on the right side of the same road after passing the restaurant (alongside the seaside), many cars had parking-fine sticker on their front window. So, be careful where you park.

“Great fast (in good sense) Greek food, BUT AVOID THE WINE!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2013

This was our first port of call, based on other contributors to TripAdvisor. To put this in context, don't expect gourmet food in Heraklion, rather honest traditional Greek fare.
The portions were gargantuan - especially the white bait, which could have fed a hungry family. The salads were equally large, and so fresh. The food did come quickly, but this is due to the nature of the food, and how it is usually cooked. We were given a free dessert and the usual, ubiquitous raki.
The service was fast and efficient, with some great sport to be seen as the waiters take on the local traffic to cross the road to the seaside location of the seating. A good view over the bay at Heraklion too.
One issue -- the wine. It was cheap, but, frankly, I have had better tasting cough medicine! Keep to the ice cold beer.
All round great fun.
