We tried this restaurant during the winter months and were the only customers so it's probably unfair to comment but the service was reluctant and the food was average - will try it again during the season as a comparison

Decent restaurant but nothing spectacular. The food is rather blunt and even though it claims traditional it has a twist that goes nowhere.. The place feels cold in the winter

We went three times, and each time we were warmly welcomed and treated to really good Greek classic cuisine. Those searching for Michelin starred restaurants would be disappointed, but thats not the point with Heraklion. Its more a question of seeking out good tasting food, using good ingredients well cooked, and this restaurant delivered each time. All this at a... More

Very cosy and beautiful restaurant. The service was fine, the food alright and decently priced. We recommend getting a caraf of their Cretan wine - good and cheap.

We visited this restaurant based on the fact it was the no1 in Heraklion and was suprised to find it almost empty when we got there. The outdoor setting is really nice, although a business operating behind the boundary of the restaurant was obviously working at this time of the evening and the noise at times intrusive. The waitress was... More
