25is Avgoustou 4, Iraklio 712 02
Lovely cafe with views of the port and a large outside area. Great rose wine, good for a snack and decent prices.
Down a side street off the main square we found a lovely local restaurant serving up some tasty local food at really reasonable prices.
We had fried zucchini, mpeki meze, fried potatoes, meatballs and cheese croquettes – such decent portions!
Wild Rose Cafe
Vagias Str. Amoudara Linoperamata, Heraklion Crete
Literally a minute from Hotel Georgia is Wild Rose Cafe with live sport and tasty cocktails! They also offer a basic lunch menu if you want a snack.
This was my favourite restaurant in Amoudara, just a five minute walk from our hotel. It has a beautiful outside area with loads of flowers and plants and a more traditional, rustic interior.
The service was friendly and attentive and the food was so reasonably priced for the quality. We actually ended up visiting twice it was so good! We had the moussaka, lamb shank with risotto and a mixed meze of meat. I cannot recommend the lamb shank enough – beautifully cooked and so tasty! A meal for two with drinks was under €30 which is such good value.
