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.

Myself and the wife visited this restaurant for a late tea.

We had past the gentlemen every night of our holiday as every night he told us it was 'Very Nice' we decided to give it a whirl and he wasn't wrong.

You can go for normal meals or they have a few Mezes options. We went for normal food.

The waiter was very informative and was happy to talk you though any dishes you weren't sure of to make sure you got the right thing for you which is a quality I love when eating abroad.

After some deliberation I took on a Spicy Cheese starter with some Bread and the wife had Stuffed Mushrooms. Both of these were really really nice.

Mains we both had a Greek Plate which had a mixture of Greek dishes on, all absolutely beautiful.

Here's the really good bit...

The price was really cheap!! We had 2 starters with bread, 2 main courses, 2 large beers and two glasses of Rose wine and the bill was €38

Absolute Bargain!!

Give this restaurant a try, you won't be disappointed.

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.

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!

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 !
