One of the best tapas restaurants in Heraklion town. Right in the middle of the town and next to the market street, "ligo ap'ola" is a good place for lunch or dinner. During some evenings the restaurant is offering life Cretan and Greek music. Reasonable prices too.

We had lunch in this lovely taverna. Traditional starters, delicious meat, loaf bread, fresh salads, great tzatziki and cold raki! The music was amazing (greek) and there were a few people dancing!

Apparently a simple tavern in a narrow pedestrian lane, Ligo apo ola ( we discover that in Greek means “a little bit of everything” ) it is just like this: a paradise for carnivorous and heaven for vegetarians. I tried the stavlisia brizola : a giant 1 kg Greek t-bone steak and my wife a vegetarian mix grill with halloumi... More
