Fine Cretan hospitality and unique quality home made food that leaves your mouth with a taste of Crete. A must visit for the one that comes to the city.

This restaurant is on "restaurant row" along the water, easy walking distance to all the hotels. You must eat here, the fish could not be fresher or the service nicer.

Excellent food, even better service. Right on the water with a great view and atmosphere. If you are walking around down by the harbor, this is a great place to eat and drink.

Perfect location and view (Heraklion harbour). The seafood was average considering that this restaurant is in Crete but the staff was extremely helpful and polite (thus the 4 marks rating). Also the combination of a sweet dessert with the traditional Raki (both of them for free!!) was awesome.
