Our first night in Heraklion we just wanted a quick bite. Our hotel recommended we try Politia and we were not disappointed. There are three gyro restaurants in a row and Politia is the one on the left. Fresh, tasty, plentiful, nice service, inexpensive.

Kebab was good, meat was tasty and well cooked, potatoes were very nice. But I'm giving a 2 star just cause I seen guy making the kebab smoking right next to it.

Portions were very generous but if you are looking for mean cuisine,then this is not the place. The staff, who I think were all of one family, were quick and functional. For some people it would be ok but sadly not for us.

From outside, this restaurant looked so appealing. So, since I wasn't very hungry, I went in to have a salad or something else light. Well, I chose the wrong chicken Caesar salad. It had plenty of chicken, but, instead of Caesar dressing, this restaurant uses...More

When entering this restaurant, you see an article mentioning that the specific restaurant is voted as the best souvlaki restaurant in the world. Well, it is not! It actually is rather expensive and contains enough meat but very little yoghurt and vegetables.
