As soon as you walk inside the restaurant, the exquisite smell of the slowly cooked meat and other treats hit you right on the spot, you know you are in for a treat, and as walking through smiles sitting on tables feasting on glory, you become part of a happy family whose hardest call is to chose what to eat...

Fantastic environment. Close to harbor and the city center. Quick service. Very polite staff that always smile. Great decoration. The tastes are excellent. Try everything if u have the chance! Good variety of wines. Good prices. If u order the dessert sometimes they offer u another (different) one! When living , don't forget to say 'congratulations' to the chef !!

Recommended by the receptionist at our hotel so gave it a try. This restaurant specialises in meat and the quality was excellent. It suited my husband as he loves red meat and he enjoyed a pork dish. I had the best salad of my holiday - it was different to most and had bacon, cheese and sesame seed crunch in... More

Situated at a nice square in the center of the city, it offers tables inside and ouside. Meats are really great and well-prepared; the greatest variety of beef-based dishes in the city. The square is a relatively-well protected location for children to paly around

Where the term "good cuisine" obtains a scientific dimension. Run and operated by specialists, the result is an experience you owe to yourself. The whole catalogue is monumental, if you are around the city for sometime go back and try as much as you can. Nothing more to add here, the rest to be found in situ!

You can't really go wrong with food in Crete. But this is a must if you visit Heraklion, looking for Cretan food with a "twist"

A small restaurant located near a nice square about 5 minutes walk from Heraklion city center. Try the pork plate ("Schweinehaxe") and after enjoying the magnificent taste confront yourself with the portion size (better order it for 2 persons!). Other plates are ok but no highlight. The prices are a bit high

This restaurant is very good but doesn't offer something exceptional. Salads are great and traditional cheeses. However we expected more.

Our family of 5 had a terrific dinner at Kouzinerie. The pork knuckle for 2 was crispy on the outside, fall-off-the-bone tender on the inside. The Greek salad and Kouzinerie salads were delicious. The portions here are huge. For example, the Greek salad could easily feed 4. The pork knuckle is advertised for 2, but could easily feed 3-4. The... More
