We chose this place having just arrived from a very early morning start so weren't being particularly picky. It was worse than that. Service was ridiculously slow given the restaurant was less than half full and the food was, frankly, awful.

Bustling restaurant in the centre of Heraklion. Seated quite easily. Waiters seemed polite and friendly with quick service. The menu has lots of grill foods to choose from and we took the gyros served in a pitta which was ok not the best but for two gyros & 2 cans of coke under 10 euros good value.

Our family of 5 visited Politia in June 2016.We ordered a meat platter and drinks. Everything tasted great and the prices were fair. Service was excellent. We would return again in the future.

We had only a quick lunch. Service was fast and good. Unfortunately, even portions were big, the gyros was not really tasty. And, the place is little bit overpriced...

Had a quick sit down lunch. Chips made from real potatoes. Tsatsiki is the best we've had. Good, simple, delicious food. Fast, efficient and friendly service.

Food was acceptable but overpriced. Service quick but not very friendly. Much better meal was had, for the same price, at a fish restaurant on the harbour front, where one would expect it to be more expensive.
