We had dinner at Zorbas restaurant and it was very good. We liked the fact that the restaurant had a kids menu and also a variety of foods to choose from the menu. It was a nice pleasant restaurant, but we've been in better places.

A friendly waiter seated us at the restaurant's last vacant table on the promenade, overlooking the sea. The menu was not the run-of-the-mill tourist selection, but offered a number of good local specialties. We had seafood and lamb - both tasted excellent! Service was fast and friendly, and the price/quality ratio can hardly be bettered!

We were disappointed. Food is average. Starters plate came quick and tasted ok but we wanted to share and it was not enough for 25 €. We ordered some small starters after and had to wait very long. Service is not satisfying. House wine was good. There are a lot of better places to go and enjoy.

The ratio price quality is very fair. For the three starters, two main dishes and liter wine paid 50 euros. Food on 3+, service 4, the location of the 5+. Total - deserved 4.

We took a drive from Makri Gialos to explore the nearby town of Ierapetra. By the way this is a great place for supermarkets. Ierapetra is quite a busy place but worth exploring. In the harbour area there are shops and restaurants. We chose Zorbas as it had shaded tables at the water's edge and offered a good lunch menu.... More

We choose this restaurant because if was ranked high in TripAdvisor. The service was not very friendly. I ordered a la carde starters (25€) but it was not that good. The pastry was hard and not crispy- it tasted old. The zucchini flower was not at all crispy. My moms pizza was ok. All in all not a place I... More

I was two times with my wife and both times we had a nice dinner. The fish was fresh and service was quick and good. Also the wine of the house was good and not expensive. The location is very very nice, just two meters from the sea. Only one negative point: too many cats around.

This place serves you anything from beeakfast to dinner and anything in between! Their location is amazing just by the water. Most of the days they have fresh fish which they cook perfectly.
