Two visits to restaurant warm friendly welcome extensive menu great Greek food served with a smile. Dishes eaten good mixed grill for 2, moussaka, grilled pork, schnitzel, lamb chops, braised lamb and potatoes their speciality. It was quiet when we arrived but got a lot busier. The staff welcomed all new guests with enthusiasm. Good point too the locals eat there too. All nationalities visit. They make their own wine and raki, raki is on the strong side. Prices are very good portions on the large side quality and freshness of the food is excellent.

Nice and very friendly family restaurant. Good food, good prices. Loved the Cretan pies! Definitely worth the visit.

Is it possible to be too friendly? After a while I think this becomes quite fake, but we would return as its good food at a good price!

We ate here several times on or recent holiday to Crete. The family that run the restaurant were incredibly friendly and accommodating. The food was delicious and excellent value. Thank you Esperides you were a very memorable part of our holiday!

Visited Esperides several times during our stay in Crete. We went here for breakfast, lunch and 3 times for dinner. The service is fantastic and the owner Theo and his staff are all so genuinely friendly.

Full breakfast is fantastic value at €5 and the spaghetti bolognese is really nice and is a huge portion. As a group of 7, we had many varying dishes and all were very tasty including grilled chicken, souvlaki, mousaka and pork. The portions are huge and the Gemista (stuffed tomatoes and peppers) were the best we had in Crete. Ice cream and Raki given free when you ask for the bill. Definitely recommend this place.
