We chose this place having just arrived from a very early morning start so weren't being particularly picky. It was worse than that.

Bustling restaurant in the centre of Heraklion. Seated quite easily. Waiters seemed polite and friendly with quick service. The menu has lots of grill foods to choose from and we took the gyros served in a pitta which was ok not the best but for two gyros & 2 cans of coke under 10 euros good value.

The food was what we expected it to be : greek souvlaki and gyros with pita. The staff was polite and helpful and thank God could communicate in decent English. The prices... More

Our family of 5 visited Politia in June 2016.We ordered a meat platter and drinks. Everything tasted great and the prices were fair. Service was excellent. We would return again in the future.

We had only a quick lunch. Service was fast and good. Unfortunately, even portions were big, the gyros was not really tasty. And, the place is little bit overpriced...

Had a quick sit down lunch. Chips made from real potatoes. Tsatsiki is the best we've had. Good, simple, delicious food. Fast, efficient and friendly service.
