“Great Food, truly traditional. ”
Reviewed 19 May 2014 via mobile

Food was great and staff was super friendly. A couple things to warn about is that they don't speak much English so questions about them menu were hard to get an answer. Also there is no seafood. We finished out dinner with complimentary desert.

“AMAZING FOOD!”
Reviewed 19 March 2014

I had lunch today at Erganos and I was just blown away but the amazing food!
Not to miss : boiled horta (greens), fava beans, delicious cretan hand-made pasta with cheese and little yummy cheese pies with honey!
Definitely one of the best places in Heraklion to taste the REAL traditional food

“Erganos --- good restaurant but not near where Tripadvisor maps it”
Reviewed 6 September 2013

We are staying at the Galaxy Hotel ---- a great place to stay. After looking at the reviews on TA we decided to eat at Erganos Restaurant. After we walked to where it is located on the TA map we walked back to the Galaxy and took a cab. It is about 1 mile or so in the opposite direction and towards the central city area.
The food here was very authentic and good. We enjoyed our experience and would probably suggest this place to friends looking for a local restaurant with foods representing the area. Our only disappointment was the snail dish. Some were excellent and some of the snails were chewy and not flavorful. The house wine was not our favorite but our style is more CA full bodied. The syrah he suggested was perfectly O.K. and the wait staff (probably the owner) was great. A good experience.

“Yummy!”
Reviewed 1 September 2013

Very traditional Cretan food. I had the veal chop which was so good I could have eaten the bone. For appetizers we shared the marrow and stuffed grape leaves which were also very good. The waiter was wonderful and tried very hard to explain in English what the various dishes were. The only thing I didn't like - which is not the fault of the restaurant, but cultural - was all the cigarette smoking around us, which we've found almost everywhere but given the tight seating here was even more obvious. The prices were also very reasonable.

“Traditional Cretan food”
Reviewed 15 July 2013 via mobile

A receptionist suggested this place after I asked him to point me in the direction of a traditional Cretan taverna. To cut a long story short, I've visited Heraklion twice since and Erganos is always in my plans. The lamp is superb, the meatpie is really tasty and the salads very fresh. It generally serves good traditional food at very good prices. The owner and staff are very friendly making the whole experience a very pleasant one.
