“Romantic location, fantastic food!”
Reviewed 1 July 2014 via mobile

Came here after doing research on trip advisor. And so glad we did. If you come to hersonissos (coast not old town) you have to eat here... However taking a walk along the coast there seem to be dozens of lovely looking good resteraunts.
The resteraunt is situated overlooking the sea... set a little way up the rock face. The views are stunning from the top but if you book you can ask to be seated a little lower down the rock face. This is a few steps down and you are situated on the ledge next to the sea which laps at your feet not a few meters below you. The lighting is romantic so anyone wanting that little bit extra... book in advance.
The resteraunt itself is modern, funky tastefully done. Anyone looking for a traditional taverna... its not for you.
The waiters are attentive, polite and friendly. The kitchen is open and every so often you will see the flames shoot high.
The food is traditional crete mixed with modern ranging from dacos to octopus to truffle oil cooked chips to just simple steak and chips so something for most people. We have eaten at alot of places and this seems to be average prices... between 8 euro to 12 euro for main course with the exception of lobster and king prawn touching the 30 euro mark... but you have to pay this for fresh.all in all a beautiful little spot for both food and location. .. would definitely recommend.

“It's magic place!”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

Usually when you are going to restaurant you expect tasty food, good drink and service who helps you feel like a guest. When you are guest in this restaurant great fresh food and fantastic summer cocktails are just a basic. In addition they have perfect service, amazing view and cuban music live every Saturday! You definitely should try there shrimps ouzo and chicken souvlaki. And if sb is fries lover like me you must try sweet potato fries! :)

“Must go restaurant”
Reviewed 19 June 2014 via mobile

Hersonissos is a tourist area, full of average restaurants and cafés with very typical food. Our hotel was close by and after a day sight seeing we decided to go no further than 1 minute away. I was worried that again it will be same items on the menu as everywhere else, something quick and easy to satisfy hungry tourist, BUT med is all about prompt service (Alex is the most helpful, friendly and smily waiter on the seaside) , and magnificent, properly cooked food. Lovely moist pork, the best octopus we had in the town, and super delicious fried calamari and so on. We went there couple of times already and I would absolutely go back there again next time I'm on the island of Crete.
