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.

Small and cozy restaurant in the Handakos pedestrian zone of Heraklion. The “Green Horse” (=name of the restaurant) is situated in a quiet environment, offers attractive seating in the small interior, exterior under an awning or in the sidewalk area. It impresses by a small,...More
