I visit "napoleon" any time I can! All of the dishes are perfect...I really cannot recommend just one or a few, go there and try as many as you can..The service is excellent and pretty fast also.If you eat there once,you won't go anywhere else during your stay in Ierapetra.. It's a family bussiness with friendly and warm owners.. Everytime... More

I am greek and i can tell you, that fresh fish is rare in a tavern or in a restaurant, especially in the summer with so much tourism, but this tavern never changes it's policy. They sell only fresh fish ALWAYS. It doesn't matter if they don't have plenty of different fishes in their catalog, it matters to be fresh.... More

This is a great restaurant with amazing food. During our visit we went for three or four starters to share and were not disappointed: the portions were very generous and the food was amazing! I would personally recommend the courgette croquettes and the stuffed vine leaves... At the end we were also offered complimentary watermelon. Very refreshing! A really good... More

We had a course of fish and sea food , together with ouzo-mezedes. All very well prepared, timely served at a convenient location by the seaside at a close to fair price.

We have eaten at the Napoleon many times after first being introduced by our very good friend Sonya who owns the Pallas gold shop in the town, since that time we have taken our friends to eat there and all absolutely love it, the staff and owner are all very friendly and always make the time to sit and chat

The restaurant (closed on Sundays) had always an excellent quality food: fresh, regional products and authentic traditional cooking. It's reasonable priced for Greek standards, cheap for most tourists. The service is friendly and fast.

The restaurant is quiet, open and wide. The place is good, near the harbor of Ierapetra. Excellent starters and moussaka. The service is available and friendly.

It has become for us a kind of tradition to make a stop-over at Ierapetra before going to Makry Gialos for our annual swimming break with our little son. The first time we did that (some 5 or 6 years ago) we asked around about which was the best place to have lunch. The answer was unanimous: You must go... More
