    Prefecture of Heraklion Restaurants

    I decided to write this tip due to some people complaining about there pizza's in a Restaurant(Blue Sky) in Gouves. Pizzas in Greece are not like the Pizza you get in Italy. They are more like American ones. A bit like cross between a Pizza and a cheese flan with their high sides and cheese fillings. Look on them as something other than a pizza and...

  • Sui Yuan Chinese Restaurant (Gouves)

    Prefecture of Heraklion Restaurants

    This is the other Chinese Restaurant in Gouves, not as overboard oriental looking as the New China but you could still not mistake it for anything else with it’s red wood and bright Chinese lanterns. This one also has the advantage of the Chinese Owner serving and being seen out and about unlike the New China restaurant with no Chinese staff on...

    Prefecture of Heraklion Restaurants

    Around the Morozini fountain in Iraklion here are some very nice looking cafe's some of which specialize in Bhougatsa which is a flaky pastry filled with cheese or cream and then drizzled with honey. In the mornings when the first Ferries arrive many people make their way to these cafes’s to get their 'fix' of this delicious delicacy. We went to...

  • New China Restaurant (Gouves)

    Prefecture of Heraklion Restaurants

    This is the most Oriental looking of the 2 Chinese Restaurants in Gouves although none of the waiters were Chinese; the food however certainly is fantastic. We did not go for the usual tourist thing of just ordering one of the set menu’s advertised, instead we made our choices separately from the menu. Starting with Hot and sour soup which was...

  • Taverna Samaria (Gouves)

    Prefecture of Heraklion Restaurants

    A short walk up from our apartments towards the main road is Taverna Samaria and after having walked past it twice today it had really caught my eye, I’m not sure if it was the look of the place or the Chalk board outside saying Lamb kleftico but we decided to go there for our dinner. It is a very traditional Taverna which reminded me very much of...

  • Nefeli Taverna (Gouves)

    Prefecture of Heraklion Restaurants

    Situated on the sea front, outdoor seating with bar area. Live Greek music. Food was good but went cold quick (because of the wind). I had a mixed Greek plate and Evan had a Gyros plate. Not the best restaurant we have been to but certainly a lot better than Zorbas. The Greek music was certainly the best part though.

  • Acropolis Taverna (Hersonissos)

    Prefecture of Heraklion Restaurants

    Walking along the small cliff tops over the beach, many waiters attempted to usher us into their tavernas. When it came to the second to last one, we realized just how hungry we were and gave in.

  • They're everywhere (Iraklion)

    We were surprised to see a Starbucks in Heraklion, and decided that as we were both thirsty anyway, we would go in and see what it is like. All the coffee’s looked the same as back home, except for a “Green Tea Frappuchino”, although it said this was for summer so we may have missed it back home. I had a water while Evan had a sparkling Sanguinello...

  • Restaurants around Hersonissos

    In the two weeks I stayed there I tried a new restaurant almost every night. To tell you the truth I couldn´t find any bad restaurants. Both the pizzerias around Hersonissos´ shoreline and the local restaurants of Piskopiano and Old Hersonisson (up in the hills) were all great. I loved the food on Crete. Pizza, souvlaki, mousaka, salad etc.
