Heraklion Restaurants

Heraklion restaurants

Heraklion restaurants are found everywhere in the region: in the narrow streets of Heraklion Town, along the beaches, in the village squares, even on the side of gorges. There is everywhere a nice traditional tavern t welcome its guests. Tourist places, like Gouves, Hersonissos, Hani Kokkini, Ammoudara or Matala, host the majority of Heraklion restaurants. But many nice taverns are also found in less tourist-developed places.

In these taverns, do not miss the chance to try the authentic Cretan dishes, made by natural ingredients from local fields and pure olive oil. Such traditional specialties are the famous dakos salad, local pies, sweet or salty kaltsounia, goat with red sauce and more. Do not miss to taste the delicious house wine and famous raki, the authentic Cretan spirit. The region of Heraklion produces high-quality wine, especially the vineyards around Archanes village.

Here are some lovely restaurants in Heraklion. Each restaurant is presented with detailed text, photos and point on Google map. If you have visited any of these restaurants, feel free to write your review. All request forms go directly to the restaurant manager so that you can make a reservation in person or ask them any question.
