Out of 10 nights,we ate there 8 times it was that good. We were remembered from last year,which was nice. Whilst there,I celebrated my birthday,and they presented me with a fabulous chocolate cake. As for recommendations for meals,we just say anything! Traditional Greek food is A1 here,the stifado and kleftico being superb. It's fairly small and you may have to wait to dine,but oh my goodness it's worth it!!!

Shared Fried cheese and meatballs to start which were lovely. House wine was delicious and service was friendly and welcoming.
The sea bream was rather small and the accompanying vegetables were soggy and luke warm although mommas legendary potatoes were crispy and delicious.
Big disappointment for us was when momma came out of her kitchen to speak with a fellow diner while she was smoking a cigarette. Yuk!!!!

..We tried to book a table following recommendations to do so but were told bookings were not taken for couples. We were reassured, however, that there would not be a problem given we wanted to eat at 6pm..."we would have the choice of the restaurant." Very disappointed to arrive and find that not only was the table for two we would have liked had a Reserved sign on (and not occupied for the whole time we were there) we were told where we HAD to sit!! Despite this, we could not fault the food...presentation, taste, quality. More expensive menu, including the wine, but well worth it. Would not put us off visiting again

At Koutouloufari in Hersonissos, in this beautiful traditional village, the Alchemist awaits you. Stone, wood, light, and a green scenery blend to form a casual decor. Enjoy selected dishes of the Cretan cuisine. Grilled meat, a wide variety of appetizers, fresh seafood, and sophisticated cocktails. Taste the beef stew or the lamb. Complement your meal with cold beer or Cretan wine. Finally try a homemade dessert. Human smiles will fulfill the integrity of the site and the excellence of flavors.
We managed to catch this restaurant on its last night of the season and enjoyed a terrific evening. The atmosphere was vibrant and the margaritas delicious. Can’t remember what we ate as the Raki kept coming, but I do remember that the food and hospitality were good.

Open Daily from 9.30 am till 1.00 am, Close to the nightlife of Hersonissos but just outside the crowdy noisy area where one can enjoy a fresh meal and a signature cocktail with the combination of the breathtaking beachfront view of the sea and the sunset with the sounds of lounge, bossa nova, latin. Our 'Farm to Table' cuisine at Med Cafe restaurant showcases our passion for fresh and healthy eating. We source majority of our meats, dairy, directly from the producing farms in Greece with many bio vegetables from our own Gardens. The menu consists of local and Mediterranean favourites including Paella, gluten free pizzas, locally farmed grass fed steaks, smoked lamb chops and daily caught seafood. To top things off, try our Tikki and molecular cocktails.
Highly rated on trip advisor so we thought it’s safe . Had two different dishes one was with prawns. Both got food poisoning within an 30 min of eating. Absolutely awful experience on first night of holiday. Ruined everything. Great setting but obviously food not kept in cold or prepared hygienically. Would not recommend unless you want to risk. On a contrary the best and safe place is Mythos restaurant, abs fabulous!

The coffee here is excellent and a fraction of Costa, Starbucks etc.
The staff are friendly, service is excellent and I believe that they deliver to the local area.
There is a good selection of coffee, mugs etc for sale and it is so brilliant to have a choice-I remember the days of greek coffee or Nescafe!!!
I believe that they are a small chain.

Of all the Tavernas in the square we are very happy that we chose this one. Friendly and attentive waiters/waitresses and an owner with a good sense of humour. Food was top quality as was the evenings entertainment of Greek dancing. A very enjoyable experience.

We visited the Nautica Restaurant overlooking the beach in Hersonissos for lunch and had an enjoyable seafood platter. The restaurant was clean and the service was good. When we had finished our meal, we were offered complimentary raki which we thought was a nice gesture.

Passed by here on numerous occasions last year and this when it was usually busy.
Called in one mid morning when it was empty and had a seat on one of their nice sofas,they have several towards the front. Had a couple of drinks and sat watching what was going by. A good place for this.
Service was good,but we were the only customers. Drinks a bit more expensive than other bars-parhaps paying for the furnature?
