We highly recommend this place to get the taste of real local Crete food! The owner explained us very detailed the different food choices. We very well liked that we also could take half sized dishes so we took 4 or 5 dishes!
Food tasted great and we enjoyed the atmosphere in the market. My wife liked the snails particularly.
Only small dislike was that they charged us 50 ct for the bread we did not order and did not eat...
Overall great place and we come again!

In a perfect setting inside the beautiful DIMOTIKI AGORA, you can enjoy authentic and honest Greek/Cretan food. Lunch is the busiest time, so go early to enjoy an original Greek environment. Highly recommended.

Not a taverna for highly demanding and discerning customers but very authentic indeed. We ordered snails, mousaka, and lamb guts - all very tasty but a little bit too oily. Highly commend on the friendly service but do not expect very cosy sitting there. A major advantage is that you see the meals on offer before picking them out and may combine different kinds of it. Also, the price for the meals will meet the expectations of the budget travellers.
Thumbs up!

We have memories of Greek tavernas as they used to be forty years ago. Sadly it is difficult to find such tavernas in modern Greece. Agapinis is a family run restaurant in the municipal market. The dishes available can be seen in a display cabinet. Everything looked and sounded mouthwatering, and it was difficult to chose what to eat. It reminded us of visiting Greek taverna kitchens of yesteryear.

Manolis was happy to explain all of the dishes on view. We ordered and the service was quick and efficient. There is a seating area next to the taverna. It was lovely to be eating traditional Cretan cuisine in a local market. The food was absolutely superb, well cooked and very tasty. it was a great pleasure to see Cretan dishes and not have to read a menu of pizza and burgers.

You must visit here. it is even better than the reviews. It was so good we also had a take away!
