Sit and relax infront of the Lions square watching the bypassers. Enjoying homemade fresh Cretan Bougatsa served with different fillings and enjoying your morning coffee. This is the most famous place to be enjoying your morning or late afternoons.

This was our first experience with bougatsa so we bought one sweet one and one salty/sour one. Yum! We liked both of them very much and we liked sitting there, looking at the pedestrians walk by and the waiters talking to the boys hanging around...More

We tried the classic bougatsa and the mizithra one. Both were great. The mizithra one was particular as it it sweet and savory. Fresh and hot vougatza to serve with some good views.

I visit this place every time I visit Crete for the last 35 years. The best Bougatsa of Heraklion facing Lions Square: lovely Busy place especially in the summer. But except the bougatsa nothing much.

A must visit for bugatsa fans! We tried the sweet bugatsa with crema which is served with cinnamon and sugar. The place has also sour bugatsa with cheese. Friendly staff. Good prices.

Even though bougatsa is not traditional Crete food, you will find delicious bougatsa with cheese or cream there. Very few tables but not to worry you will find a place to sit. If not to kir kir just next there is another place that I...More

We decided to go to the taverna bases on the reviews on TripAdvisor. As soon as we saw the fountain and the taverna, it was settled. The manager of the restaurant welcomed us warmly and even spoke a bit of German. The ration price/food portion...More
