Description: An atmospheric, cozy place and of the most popular gourmet hangouts of Heraklion, since 2000. All these years 'Parasies' -as was the original name of the restaurant- has been opening its doors to foodies in a smaller, intimate and beloved place. Our desire and goal is to combine classic nostalgic flavors and special blends even at the simplest dishes so that we can please every taste. It is a daily challenge and a great honor for us, when guests, as we like to call our customers, recognize and appreciate our culinary philosophy. The quality food, the finest wine labels and a coordinated team, make sure you feel comfortable while enjoying scents, flavors and authentic recipes and offer you and your guests an ideal suggestion for quiet lunches and lively dinners. *According to the Cretan dialect parastia or parasia has been the traditional way of cooking in Crete for many years. A fire was set between two parallel rectangular stones and a cooking pan was put above. Thus 'parasia' was selected as the name of the restaurant, where the open kitchen dominates as a trademark.

The owner and the staff are very friendly and made us feel very comfortable eating there. The food is Cretan, Greek, and fresh just how it's supposed to be. We will definitely come back next time we are in Crete.

I would probably come back to Greece just to eat here. The plates were all delicious, the portions great and the attention awesome. The price seemed fairly cheap for what we received. Absolutely recommended.

With friends we gathered and arranged a table in Parasties. The restaurant’s menu was traditional. We tried meat and some starters. We also had a traditional salad and some nice dessert. We all tried the stamnagathi salad, mushrooms and vegetables. The mushrooms were served with lemon and fresh oregano, nice combination. The pork in cumin and vinegar was great, if you are many people. We tried it and in addition to the salad and the vegetables, it was a great dish. The pancetta and the beef I had, was also nice from the meat we had. The dessert I enjoyed the most was the ‘loykoymas’ with vanilla ice cream.
