    The best meal I had in Greece. The salad was the best salad I've ever had in my life, and the chicken was slow cooked to perfection. Amazing food cooked with such simple ingredients.

    Amazing place & food for a special dinner, very well organized! Preferably make a reservation, we didn't made so we need to wait 30min for a table. Fair prices. Crete salad & Smoked pork were amazing.

    Incredible and enjoyable dinner. Syglino was superb: Pork ribs are hooked into a small grill and you have to smoke them by yourself adding thyme and sage leaves to the fire. Very typical location.

    The smoked pork was excellent!! The other pork dishes and the goat were also really good. The restaurant itself is beautiful with a lovely garden to eat in. Best food I've had in Greece so far!

    Fantastic creating cuisine, great ambience. Try EVERYTHING! Not to miss: their homemade fizzy drinks(karteraki is the best), the "syglino prin to kioupi" dish, apaki, and sfakianipitta dessert.

    the best authentic in heraklion, we tried the fried snails for appetizer, house wine, goat and rabbit for main foods. All foods were fresh and absolutely amazing #creta#heraklion#peskesi

    By my opinion the best food in Crete.The service here is really good, and there is always intriduction to your meal: how it was cooked and what is the history. Only local ingredients, try the souvlaki

    Stop browsing and go. Impeccable service, lovely setting/ambiance, and reasonable prices. Emphasis on authenticity. The goat with yogurt was tender and carried immense flavor. Fries light but crispy.

    Magnificent, authentic food & extremely attentive & helpful service. Goat with yoghurt, pork smoked with thyme & sage, & pork chops were all stunning. You must try this place!

    One of the best meals I've had in Greece. If you are in Heraklios, do yourself a favor and eat a meal here. Get the cheese plate and the Peskesi sausage.

    The best Cretan food is here ! Excellent service and polite staff. Beautiful and warm place. Only negative thing is no different place for smoking and no smoking people.

    Simply the best restaurant and meat in the city. They make an art out of cretan cuisine. Recommend pork kandanou and goat in yogurt!

    Order the Cretan cheese plate! It can easily feed six. All the cheeses are delicious and made from their farm.

    Authentic, quiet & slow. They offer vegetarian and vegan dishes. The "traditional" food is pretty much the same as everywhere, but more tasty, named differently and served with grace. Pay a visit

    So much fuss for no reason in my opinion. Tasty food but nothing innovative or out of this world. The staff is friendly and attentive. On the downside we had to wait for 45' in order to be seated.
