On Saturday night we got a table on the main floor. Not noisy like some places, part open-air skywards. Friendly server gave us help with ingredients in many menu items. Offered suggestions, was truly sorry some items were sold out. Bread with yogurt & minced fresh tomatoes came fast;then our Grandma's eggplant..baked with herbs & cheese. We should have ordered...

We were two for dinner on a Saturday evening and had a lovely meal at Peri Orexeos. This restaurant has a sophisticated interior. We mentioned the light level seemed a bit high and the area where we were seated was immediately dimmed. Fresh bread to start with tomatoes and yoghurt spread, followed by a large fresh Greek salad, then a... More

Very unique dishes combing meat and vegetables! Tasty starters and a wide variety of main dishes as well. The staff was very polite and quick! I will go there again! They treated us with chocolate souffle in the end

My wife and I ate here during our first visit to Heraklion and we're absolutely blown away. Peri Orexeos is located in a quieter part of the city, and featured some of the best table service I've received in the States or overseas, and an amazing meal. We also *highly* recommend you ask about and try the house honey wine,... More

Had a lunch there. I ordered a mousaka which was great ! When asked for a check i got a watermellon and a chocolate cake with glass of honey wine which was wonderful and free. Surely will come back.

I would definitely give it a second shot as I liked the flavors very much! Of course it is a small/tight place and the prices are too high for the provided portions but the approach is very interesting and the result tasty!

A nice selection of Cretan and Greek dishes with a twist. Not expensive but not cheap either. It's worth it if you are in the centre and looking for something different. The only negative is that it is a bit tight in space.

We really enjoyed this place. Good food and service and we were treated to lots of fine extras at the end of our meal, more than we have ever had before in 25 years of travelling to Crete.

We visited Peri Orexeos based on Rough Guide recommendation and mixed reviews from Trip Advisor. We were welcomed with open arms and the friendly service continued throughout the evening. We were disappointed with some of our meals, the moussaka bland and dry but the lamb chops highly recommended. However, would go back for the friendly faces and the delicious chocolate... More
