Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Stopped here for lunch whilst visiting Heraklion from out hotel 20km away. Nice little spot only a few minutes away from the tourist square. We started with some bread, which had a mix of warm fresh rolls, breadsticks and crispy mini bites. This came with...2 tomato dips which were delicious. I had lamb chops, which came with fries and salad and my wife had Kleftiko. Both dishes freshly prepared and tasted amazing. Service was very good, we received 2 deserts and raki on the house. Total bill with bread, meals and 3 beers was under 50 euro, highly recommended to stop by.More

Delicious Greek tavern food. It was upscale but casual and the staff were extremely hospitable and nice. I ordered the lamb chops and I could see them roasting over an open fire as they cooked them. The portions were generous and they brought us a...free drink and dessert at the end. Definitely go while you are in Crete!More

My family and friends loves this spot! The staff is pleasant and helpful! Always smiling. The food is delicious. You have to choose between several traditional and alternative food. I think you need to visit this place at least one time.

Petousis is a nice restaurant, with a variety of dishes for every taste. Food is delicious and the service professional. The surroundings are beautiful, and the location is in the center of Heraclion city, easy to access. There are vegan or vegetarian options, and a...small but interesting wine list. The food is delicious and you can understand everything is fresh, tasting every dish. I would visit again.More

Post Saturday Mass meal for our last night in Greece! Our server Yannis was great, attentive and ensured a lovely dinner. The roast lamb with potatoes was perfect. We also had the boiled lamb with risotto. The risotto was lemon flavored and paired very nicely...with the lamb. The restaurant doesn’t look like much from the outside, but is very warm and inviting and full of delicious smells on the inside. Petousis is a bit off the beaten path, but worth finding! You won’t go wrong here.More

Excellent traditional Greek food. For our first dinner in Crete we wanted food that we recognised and this restaurant didn’t disappoint. The waiters were very friendly and provided excellent service. The food was fresh and tasted amazing. The portions are so big we over ordered...even after cutting back on the waiters advice. Definitely worth a visit.More
