I have been to Levante so many times during the years and at all seasons - never disappointed. The reastaurant is located at the more "greek" part of the boardwalk, close to the town beach so you will dine with sea view. Very good food and a friendly, nice athmosphere. You should try fresh fish or sea food - they are really good at that! And a tips: if you are tired of potatoes ask Nikos to give you fresh vegetables insteed! You will get a beautiful decorated plate with vegetables of different texture and colours. Prices are average and it's priceworthy.

We have visited this nice restaurant Levante several times during our holiday. A good atmosphere, good cretan food with fresh vegetables,fish and meat. Nikos, the owner is very helpfull and wants for his guests a pleasant and delicious stay in his restaurant. They told us once that when we see locals in a restaurant, it must be a good restaurant. And sure it is !!.
From the restaurant guests have also a good relaxing view on the beach, see and surroundings.
Dishes with good fish or meat are well decorated with vegetables fresh from the greenhouses nearby Ierápetra.

If you ask a local to propose you a restaurant, will probably lead you to this place. There is good reason and top-quality Taverns in the town of Ierapetra. I 've eaten here so many times that it's hard to recommend few things to try as most of the dishes are excellent. Definitely, fish and related stuff are a must, since everything freshly comes from the sea of Ierapetra. Try the local Kalamari and you will notice it's so different from the usual frozen one, with a sweeter and more full taste. Fried local shrimps are also a must! On the fish-side, small fish are truly skillfully fried (e.g. Atherinas) . Apart from the fish, a must-try are the zucchini-balls, the snails and the dolmadakia (rice-stuffed vine leaves). There are many other great things I 've eaten in this restaurant, but the aforementioned are the best in my opinion. If you are around, don't miss it!

The title says everything! The restaurant it's not bad, but it's nothing special as well!
Decent Cretan and Greek cousine with some interesting tastes but over priced and over "macho" for what it is and offers now!

The restaurant was something great in it's old-old years but now it is just a "shadow of it's own past"
