Portions were very generous but if you are looking for mean cuisine,then this is not the place. The staff, who I think were all of one family, were quick and functional. For some people it would be ok but sadly not for us.

From outside, this restaurant looked so appealing. So, since I wasn't very hungry, I went in to have a salad or something else light. Well, I chose the wrong chicken Caesar salad. It had plenty of chicken, but, instead of Caesar dressing, this restaurant uses a mustard-based dressing that doesn't taste good at all. What's the mystery with making Caesar... More

When entering this restaurant, you see an article mentioning that the specific restaurant is voted as the best souvlaki restaurant in the world. Well, it is not! It actually is rather expensive and contains enough meat but very little yoghurt and vegetables.

Too much potatoes in the souvlaki but very little meat and onions. The service was quit good but not fast enough.

We chose this place having just arrived from a very early morning start so weren't being particularly picky. It was worse than that. Service was ridiculously slow given the restaurant was less than half full and the food was, frankly, awful. A huge plate of the worst bits of chicken and soggy chips (we didn't even know we were getting... More

Bustling restaurant in the centre of Heraklion. Seated quite easily. Waiters seemed polite and friendly with quick service. The menu has lots of grill foods to choose from and we took the gyros served in a pitta which was ok not the best but for two gyros & 2 cans of coke under 10 euros good value.

In the beginning we were terrified by all the bad critic on TripAdvisor but when we went to Politia and had dinner then we formed our own opinion. The food was what we expected it to be : greek souvlaki and gyros with pita. The staff was polite and helpful and thank God could communicate in decent English. The prices... More
