We spent a relaxing couple of hours on the patio at this restaurant. Decor is sophisticated Cretan. We ordered a local Cretan dry house white wine that was very drinkable and reasonably priced. Look for the "karafa" listed in Greek only on the wine list. More expensive wines by the bottle are listed in English. Dinner was served course by... More

2 couples looking for dinner around 2000. We had spotted the restaurant during a daily walk and liked the look of same. Walked past about 4 others in the same street, but decided on Loukoulos. We were shown to the last outdoor table by the proprietor. We ordered houloumi cheese, mushrooms and fries as entree's. They all came out together... More

Bad experience. Ok place. Pretentious without adequate food level. But the worse is the service. Ordinary, unelegant, unpleased, cheap. Cannot imagine why still listed on nice restaurant to go in Heraklion. No need to go.

I wish I read the reviews before I visited this place.. The place looks nice, but that's the only positive thing. We were offered soup and bread "on the house" which even was cold. We ordered water, a soft drink, a greek salad and a mixed grill for 2. Salad was ok but the mixed grill was sad, tiny portion... More

This is stealing! We ordered two set menus for two people. We got two zucchini balls (full of oil and burnt) one spoon of tzatziki (for two), a plate of Greek salad, and then I got one souvlaki and one slice of potato and one slice of zucchini (grilled) and my partner got a small piece of fish and the...

Terrible experience. The beginning was pleasant but quickly went downhill. The Courtyard dining with beautiful decor in the centre of Heraklion deceivingly gives you the impression of a fine dining restaurant however it couldn't be more wrong. After being seated we were given menus and our orders were taken. Simply ordering two glasses of rose and two pizzas. The mistakes... More

Unhelpful staff that constantly clamored and a cook that was yelling (we had visual and acoustic contact with the kitchen). Expensive dishes for the quantity that was offered (small portions). We really enjoyed the wine, though. On the top of that we found hair in the salad. Awful experience.

Great food, fabulous environment and decor and charming personality. Loved it! Order the stuffed grape leaves, served with wonderfull tzaziki and the whole meal was delisious. The owner takes care of his place, walkimg around, attentive to the guests, offering soup and extras between dishes.. he's cool
