This restaurant was full of Greek people which was a good sign, and the proprietor was very charming and friendly. However, it seems the Cretans like their meat cooked in a very plain manner. We started with liver and courgette balls, which were good, but the liver was just fried in a rather tasteless batter. I then went on to... More

So happy we went here! Very good service, adequate prices and very tasty family Greek cuisine. It's popular - make sure to book in-advance if you don't want to sit inside (however we didn't mind)

We searched to find this restaurant as we wanted an authentic, easy dining experience after a day in the city. We were not disappointed, a great range of appetisers, an interesting array of meats and wonderful salad. The vegetarian choice for main is limited but there is such a wide range of appetisers you will not go hungry! Excellent service... More

Here is a very nice, simple and elegant restaurant. Not a touristic place, a bit further away from old town, and a real authentic restaurant that owners told me is 30y old. A wonderful menu with a great list of the most intriguing Cretan specialties. Anti-christie lamb being just one of the great choices. Prices are not so cheap from... More

We came to dine here because this was listed as the #1 restaurant in Heraklion on TripAdvisor. It is centrally located, close to the southern end of Evans street and the walls, but on a quiet street and not in the middle of a touristy area. The food is very good, as is the service, and the prices very reasonable,... More

We visited Erganos during our trip to Heraklion. Place is very easy to find, in a very convenient location. We were greeted nicely by a friendly staff. Everyone was really helpful and friendly. We got recommendations and food was exceptional. Very friendly priced as well. Place itself is very cozy. With a nice fireplace inside. Cannot recommend this place more.... More
