Very simple, straightforward, honest restaurant. Fish is fresh and well cooked by mama's owner. You can't taste a better octopus in the whole Crete! It's a dream for seafood lovers.

You arrive and the friendly couple managing the restaurant lets you choose your dishes from a list. We had nice seafood home cooked with attention. Friendly service / moderate prices.

This is one of our favourite tavernas in Heraklion, we were so disappointed that it was closed on our recent trip, does any one know if it is going to be open again?

Our first night in Crete, after 10 days in the rest of Greece, and we arrived late, thanks to a torrential downpour. But even so, room was made for us, and a table set, and a sequence of superbly-cooked simple-looking dishes resulted: red peppers, beetroot,...More
