“Great food - Lovely view - Friendly staff”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

On visiting Heraklion myself & my husband were looking for somewhere to have an evening meal when we stumbled upon Paralia seaside restaurant. What a find, we both ordered the pork chops with rice & salad. What a lovely meal, the pork chop was cooked to perfection with an adequate protion of rice & side salad. After our meal we were offered either a free sweet or fresh fruit, we opted for the sweet which was delicious, donut fritters with syrup & ice cream, very yummy! The meal was also good value for money, what more can you ask! Many thanks.

“A+ authentic cretan cuisine!!”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

I have in my mind many thoughts about this place, i hope to remember all of them! To begin with the place, it is located just 5 meters from the sea, beautiful view. The main subject: food! All the ingredients were so fresh... From the vegetables until fish! Very well cooked, and all of them were delicious, of course i suggest seafood and appetizers with lot of original raki! Furthemore, the service is quick and friendly and correct as concern the sequence of the plates. The prices are not so high and not so low, the normal seafood prices i think! Finally i have to write about the treats. Fruit salad, Greek loukoumades and extra raki!
All told, VISIT IT!

“Excellent position (watching the sunset), food and service”
Reviewed May 22, 2014

Loved it; everything from the perfect place to watch the sun set, to the free raki, fresh fruit and fritters at the end of a memorable evening. Recommended for fresh fish and good selection of Greek wines.

“Excellent food, good service, seating over the beach”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

We hadn't looked up any reviews on this restaurant, we just stopped in because it looked nice - overlooking the beach when we were driving by at dinner time. What a great surprise! We both ended up getting the grilled swordfish which was excellent. Then the food kept coming! Fruit slices, a drink, dessert. We recommended it to other people we met later in Athens who were coming to Crete. It's definitely worth stopping for a meal here!
