This is an excellent restaurant. The food is superb and the service is both friendly and efficient. It had come highly recommended but it exceeded my expectations. During my short stay in Heraklion I ate dinner here twice.

On a recent trip to Crete, where I found not sun but rain, wind, and snow, I went to this restaurant because of the reviews on this site. I and my companion so enjoyed our dinner that we returned the following night. The atmosphere is casual and friendly; the English, hesitant; the menu, self-explanatory. Over the two nights, we tried... More

The service is quick and polite. Being there before, I have the feeling that their dishes have lost some of their quality, though their prices are reasonable (E 35 for two persons). There is not much choice regarding wine.

The restaurant gives you a good feeling when you come inside. Nice athmosphere and decoration, Very friendly staff that take care of the clients, and you can think it's an expensive restaurant, because it looks nice and in the center of Heraklion : it's far from the reality. Very nice prices for excellent food. Delightfull taste and nice portions for... More

I have been living in Heraklio for long, so I'm not a "new kid in town" and I 've been to several places around the city to enjoy a good meal. The attention I have always received in "peri orexeos", the delicate savors, quite traditional but modernly presented, usually seasoned with a considerable touch of gourmet that is not hurting...

IF you can find this hidden gem, it is on a busy street in old town, you are in for such a treat. We let our wonderful, kind waiter choose our traditional Cretan dishes, and we were not disappointed. Leave room for not only the usual raki, but chocolate molten cake with unbelievable vanilla ice cream drizzled with caramel. And... More

Visited here for lunch based on the Rough Guide to Crete and positive reviews on TripAdvisor. It really is small and can be hard to find especially as the name in Greek doesn't look anything like it does in English, look for the pumpkins above the name. We ended up having a group of starters and a salad all of... More

This tiny find is on a quiet pedestrian walkway. It is quiet and romantic. The food was out of this world as was the service. The portions are large and you need to save room for the complimentary fruit and pastry dessert that follows every dinner. Also a generous portion of raki comes for free as a digestive drink.

Thank Ann M
