This was my second visit to Knossos, following my first back in June. A great little find, slightly off the beaten track, with very tasty food. Our second visit was in much better weather so we sat outside on a busy Tuesday evening. Our waitress even remembered me from my first visit. We went for a selection of mixed starters... More

The restaurant is in a quite corner of central Heidelberg and so I suppose doesn't get lots of customers who just happen to walk past. But it is a traditional Greek restaurant, offering good food and very good and friendly service. It would have got five stars if there was a bit less deep frying, but it's a small point,... More

We especially enjoyed grilled marinated feta, grape leaves, marinated lamb and an elegant greek yoghurt, apples and honey dessert. The seafood and ouzo choices were a bit more limited than we are used to in our... More

I had looked up this restaurant on tripadvisor before we visited Heidelberg and chose it because of the reviews. We were staying at the Crowne Plaza and Knossos was only a short walk away. It was tucked away in a little section off a side street. We went to the restaurant early and were pleased that they had outdoor dining.... More

We went to Taverna Knossos in the middle of the week and were impressed by the fact that despite the secluded location it was nicely filled up by customers. Service is nice and friendly. We shared an aubergine dip with pita as a starter which was perfect (and got a complementary ouzo to accompany it) with the right amount of... More
