Ampakas is a friendly and modern restaurant offering traditional dishes from the island of Crete! Do not miss to drink the original raki, wine from Archanes (Heraklion-Crete) and taste the handmade kaltsounia, the traditional cretan pilaf, the traditional pasta dish with "apaki", escargot and many other made by the famous chef Stella Dialina. Live Cretan music every Saturday evening!
