    Wrong information
    This Taverna is in the port of Hersonissos in the province of Heraklion. It does not open all year, only the summer. I live around the corner from here, and the owners are friends. The food is brilliant and that is an unbiased opinion. They became friends because of the quality of their food and their filoxenia

    Very tourist place
    Hersonissos is one of the most tourist places in Crete. Its location is perfect for excursions and the village offers all amenities. The beach close to the village is excellent, although it gets very crowded in August. We go to Hersonissos for three years in the row and we were impressed that this year most tourists were Germans and Russians. Along the beach, there are many beach bars and taverns. My advice: rent a car for three four days and make excursions in the areas around Hersonissos, in particular Heraklion, Malia, Agia Pelagia and Sissi. If you don't like crowds, there are many quiter beaches close by.
