This is such a retreat in the middle of a very busy city. The setting is so pretty. They suggested some wine which was delicious and we had a mix of starters (we were so full from all the good greek food all week) and it was lovely.

We had 5 starters between us which were all local delicacies and it was all homemade with love and fresh and delicious. The mains didn't "read" very well on the menu I thought, but I dont think that was an indication of the food but of the translation and simplicity of greek food - maybe we should have just gone for it and picked something. Don't let these comments put you off.

Altogether, one of our most magical evenings during our holiday, thank you.

This restaurant is the best restaurant we have tried during our 4 days in Crete. Ambiance and service are excellent; food is very tasty; at the end, we even received the ouzo and a dessert free! Definitively, a very good suggesting to try!

Seafood dishes are not this restaurant's strength but their meats and appetizers were good. I expected much more considering it was the top rated restaurant in Heraklion.

Kipos ton Gefseon is very close to the centre but there's no too much noise and has the most amazing garden i've ever been. So relaxing atmosphere..friendly,helpful staff! But the best part of the night was the food. It was so delicious!!! Starters and main dishes,meat or fish..we recommend the entire menu!
