Napoleon is a very nice restaurant close to the port of Ierapetra. It has a big terrace and offers all kind of Greek food. The owner is a very nice person!

The restaurant (closed on Sundays) had always an excellent quality food: fresh, regional products and authentic traditional cooking. It's reasonable priced for Greek standards, cheap for most tourists. The service is friendly and fast.
