About Parasies

On the square of the Historical Museum of Heraklion, you will find this warm, comfortable and elegant restaurant with the open oven, geared mostly to the traditional Cretan cuisine.The space is decorated in traditional patterns, with comfortable wooden chairs and tables. In summer sit in the beautiful bustling square, refreshed by the sea breeze and relax under the starlit Cretan sky. Enjoy the wine of your choice, choosing perhaps of the most comprehensive list we have ever seen! The service is excellent and the staff always willing to advise you if you need help.Traditional Cretan is the way of preparation of most dishes. Exclusive Cretan olive oil, Cretan rusk, organic vegetables, unique fresh herbs, local meat and generally the best products of the Cretan Land. The slow roasting, the combination of quality materials, “passion and art” of the baker transform even the most simple dishes into unique creations. Clear proof, the simplest of dishes: French fries, as you have not eaten again, or eat like years ago in the village, from the hands of your grandmother!  The MEAT is top quality. Taste the smoked pork chops and the huge veal fillets with staka and fresh local herbs. Don’t forget to “let a little space” for homemade Loukoumades (like doughnut holes) with ice cream, chocolate soufflé, Galaktoboureko (like custard filled pastry), halva or fruit and raki on us for good digestion!
