Went in for dinner in a Friday night. We we looking for a quiet evening, and they were advertising a piano night which to be honest was what intrigued us. We were the only ones in the restaurant apart from the staff, and that is how it stayed all night!!! The pianist was sitting behind us chatting away to the... More

This place was recommended by a couple staying at the same hotel with us , so we went to have a look. The menu was rich , but generally overpriced for waht was offered . portions not as big as in less expensive taverns of the city . The wine was good though and the place was clean .

Good food, friendly waiter. Every room was decorated different, so it made it fun to look around the restaurant. We just had a quick lunch, nothing fancy. But I expect that the meals here are outstanding. We just weren't hungry enough to try more than a nibble!

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

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
