Excellent choice for those who are looking for traditional experts in Cretan food. The place is designed to give you the cretan feeling of old-times houses. Plenty of choices and good service.

The best place in Heraklion for Cretan cuisine and tranditional plates. Do not miss it. I am a local and I go there on Sundays with my family. It’s the best in town, with normal prices.
