We ate as a group of 14 on a Sunday evening. The staff were friendly and the food, especially the seafood was excellent. One word of caution, there wasn't much choice for vegetarians and one coeliacs sufferer who needed gluten free food, so if your group has special dietary needs, ask before you book.

We enjoyed the last meal of our holiday at the Hera and had to eat quite early, due to having to leave for the airport at 6pm. The restaurant was quiet at this time with just one other table occupied (it was also low season). The young waiter was friendly and polite. The food took a short while - not... More

The tourist menu is fantastic value and always plenty of choice. Only 12.50 euros each for cover, starter, main, dessert and half carafe of wine. I... More

The omelette, from memory describe as 'mixed', was supposed to have ham & cheese in it, failed to find either. The salmon would have been excellent if someone had made an attempt to fillet it before cooking it, bones galore. Saving grace the service was very good
