We came in late afternoon with only one client. Family cafe environment. Seafood risotto is the best we ever had in Greece and tiramisu as recommended by the owner. He really got his character, but pretty ok with us.

Having read the rave reviews of Prassein Aloga I decided to give it a go on my last night in Iraklion. The food, did not disappoint, it was excellent (I'm Greek), which was a pleasant surprise given the hit and miss nature of Greek taverns...More

This is by far the best restaurant in Heraklion that everyone MUST visit. Small and cozy, personal service (special thanks to Thomas) and the dishes are amazing! Maybe a bit hard to find (there isnt a clear sign outside) I live in Heraklion and whenever...More
