Description: Excellent Taverna - and you only have 4 reviews of places in this very popular tourist destination at present. Delicious, traditional Cretan foods - including the only dolmades (stuffed vine leaves) that my girlfriends has ever eaten and superb oven-baked aubergines. I would like to write a full review of this excellent restaurant, so please add it to your site.

“Personable and quality”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014

Lovely meals here. All traditional in style with waiters not scared to have a good time. Busy at peak times, so you may need to wait. One of the best in the resort.

“Great value and delicious food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014 via mobile

We had a very late dinner here one night, because our hotel was in Piskopiano too. We got a nice little table outside and ordered a bit of everything. We had baked feta (hot and fantastic), Greek salad, homemade bread, tzatziki, hot and spicy cheese (stellar), and the stuffed vine leaves (also unexpectedly flavorful). We shared a main as well, the fried calamari- these were very good, although you had to slice them yourselves. I usually get them already sliced, but very good. The food was brought out extremely quickly- I would say within ten minutes, and everything was very hot. We also had wine and water, and were served the expected raki and watermelon before we paid. All of this was only €30- a great value. And the service was very friendly and efficient. I'd recommend this place to families as well as couples, because I saw how friendly the staff was with kids. They even had some blue "raki" for the kids (not alcohol) so they wouldn't feel left out when mom and dad got free stuff. Great place!

“If you like authentic greek food, don't miss APOSPERIDA in Creta”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

I like visiting Creta and i'm doing that a few times on year. It's amazing find every time new good and interesting places . At last our visit June 2014 we found the restautant Aposperida in Piscopiano Hersonhsos. Actually, is located in village 10 min' driving from Hersonisos center.
We found Aposperida by accident because other near restaurants vere closed at 2.30 P.M.
We were very welcome and our choice was lamb ribs, mousaka, grilled fishes and for children
nuggets and fries. The traditional starters Tzatziki Greek salad and fried Zuchini flovers were just
a good hint what will be with the main dishes. As we already guess, the main dishes were absolutely gorgeos, all of them ! i'm warning you, the portions are really huge , then you must considere that the lunch will take time to finish. Now, the price; we were 4 adults and 2 children
12 and 16 year old and the bill including beers, sauces and desert was 85 euro !
ENJOY !!!

“superb food and great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014

We have holidayed in Piskopiano several times and have no hesitation in recommending Aposperida.
Georges and Petros are lovely hosts, very welcoming and always willing to adapt the menu according to your preferences.
There are very many excellent restaurants in the locality, but the food here is outstandingly well cooked and the hospitality is just great!
If you have the chance to eat here.....enjoy.
