As u can read along here. Difficult to find a good place to eat in Chersonnissos area, this is typical Greece cuisine but done correctly. Simple things but fresh and tasty with their own twist. Kostas does his best to make sure you are served...correctly. For me setting the standard for here.More

Nice little village. In the evening there is often traditional Cretan music and dancing. Interesting. The restaurant is good and the people are very helpful but the service is slow for the dishes... . To see the show, the angle of view is not great:...too off-centre, I had to get up often to see something.More

Portego serves you Crete on a plate. Real, honest and delicious cretan food, prepared in a small family restaurant. You must try the Saganaki and the apple pie with caramel ice cream!!! We'll come back for sure!

During our 16 day stay in Mochos we spent most of our evening meals at Portego. From the first visit, it felt like "home". Very friendly and professional staff and owner - relaxed feeling and treatment on top level. During our stay we got to...know the whole team, the chefs, the serving team, the owners - all of them lovely people that treat you more as a friend then a customer. Besides of the top atmosphere - the food is fantastic - everyone can find something they will love on the menu - from lovely starters to traditional moussaka and tasty deserts :) If you are a wine lover - this is a must for you to visit. The owner, Kostas, he is a walking wikipedia of local wines and have a lot of varietys to offer no matter if you prefer white, rose or red wines. If you like coctails - there is also a nice variety of tasteful combinations For kids - our daughter loved the homemade lemonade :D to summarize it - if you want to have lovely food and be able to eat it in a fantastic location in a friendly atmosphere - this is your place. Our 100% recommendationMore

Incredibly nice place in the heart of Mochos. The food is amazing and it is typical Greek a bit revised to bring newer tastes to that. Good selection of wine as well! Kostas (hope I spelled it correctly) the owner is super nice and will...give you an amazing dinner experience. Thanks for everything and I hope I will come back very soon!!More

Another visit to this lovely restaurant in beautiful Mochos. Went on Wednesday when it was the traditional Cretan night. Excellent service and food as usual. We love their home made tomato jam, and was able to buy a ja. Will be looking forward to sampling...this at home, reminding us of our lovely holidayMore

Portego is such a fantastic restaurant situated in the square in Mochos Crete. The food and friendly atmosphere is so good that we make the journey from Stalis a few times during our holidays every year. Thank you once again for beautiful food and drinks!
