We didn't and most of the tables were reserved but as we arrived when it opened at 6pm we were lucky to find a table. The restaurant is really in a great location near the Fortezza and the views are lovely. The food was excellent with some lovely olive oil drizzled over bread with dips to start and then some delicious moussaka and salad. The friendly staff bought us a piece of creamy cake which made a perfect dessert. With a large glass of the house red and a bottle of water the meal was only 25 Euros and this was excellent value for two in such a lovely restaurant. We left very happy with our choice of eating place.

We are at Castelvecchio this evening with our young daughter after reading reviews on trip advisor and Lonely Planet. There were plenty of vacant tables on the terrace but were told there were all revved and that we'd have to sit downstairs. However people without reservations that arrived after us and we're given a table on the terrace. We ordered the saganaki and eggplant tower for starters which were both ordinary. For mains had the moussaka and lamb special which were both very bland. We've had some fantastic meals in Crete and this was not one of them. This place does not cater to young families. There is no kids menu and we felt that we were disadvantaged for dining with a young child. Very overrated and poor service. Maybe it used to be good, but we saw no sign of that

Nice place for dinner just on the edge of the old town. Excellent food, really nice atmosphere and very helpful staff.

Placed not in the middle of crowded city, near the fortress, with a wonderfull terrace under a lovely tree. The owner is so gentle and friendly. Food is really special and delicious. I kindle suggest to stop here. Definitely not a touristic place. Price reflect the quality of the food and service.

Cozy restaurant located close to the fortress, just few meters away for touristic area. Great location for dinner on the terrace. Very friendly staff and real high quality of the food. Lamb is their specialty! if you are looking for a special dinner this is the right choice . Highly recommended
