We went there for dinner as a couple and the service was excellent. We tried the stuffed courgette flowers leafs and the fresh fish which were both amazing. The owners offered us a special kind of cheese to try with the stuffed courgette flowers leafs which was very good. It was very romantic (sea view) and quiet.

Although our host initially seemed a little aloof, he warmed up as we discussed our choices from the excellent menu, which includes some classic Greek dishes like 'papoutsia' which I haven't seen for a while. Everything we ordered was good, as was the wine, and the location is just a little out of the busy mainstream along the front. I... More

From previous reviews we decided to try Levante and ended up eating there 3 nights during our week in Crete. There weren't many tourists around during the Easter week we were there and most restaurants had just a handful of guests or less. Nikos made us very welcome and was happy to discuss the menu, explain what was fresh in,... More

Make the effort to walk towards the Venetian fort and you will be well looked after by Nicos and his friendly family. He offers good advice on local dishes and the portion sizes were just right. We had delicious red mullet, sardines, fava beans, mountain greens, baked aubergine and more for our two meals. In calm weather you can eat... More
