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.

Spending some quality time in town we arranged dinner night at Parasties restaurant. Taking a look at the inside we were convinced that it is a nice place for having dinner. The restaurant is comforting. We had some mushrooms with lemon and fresh oregano. The beef fillet is the dish I had. It is a nice dish with traditional cheese and herbs. From sweets we thought that the loukoumades are good option for this restaurant.

The first restaurant we tried during our stay in Hraklion of Crete. We had feta cheese on the grill with tomato and pepper. We also had an exceptional salad with many different vegetables and it was the first time we tried some of them. The chicken and the pork steak were rightly cooked and they have used herbs to give extra taste.
