Battered fried salt cod was disappointing it was very greasy and average at best. The chips were ok, but the calamari was very nice.

Bakaliarakia is more of a tavern than a restaurant - food-wise. Don't expect any fancy food, but the simple, traditional, high-quality dishes they serve are of high quality and very tasty. The staff is very kind and the service is fast. The location is not...More

Bakaliarakia is a small pretty taverna beautifully redecorated in the style of an old Cretan kafeneio. It's located in a lively middle-class neighbourhood with small shops behind the bus terminal. Although it's completely out of the tourist hubbub, the taverna is easy to find, just...More
