Since opening in 2007, this restaurant has emerged as offering the finest dining experience in Iraklion. I put it that way because there is no denying that the decor of the dining room contributes greatly to the occasion. The decor is perhaps best described as "postmodern," with elements of Art Deco and "industrialism" making for an eye-catching environment. But this would mean nothing if it were not matched by the menu and service, which are in fact of the highest quality. The ingredients are basically Greek -- even local Cretan -- but prepared in combinations that make for some unexpected treats: Appetizers include a tomato-brie puff pie and goat cheese with prosciutto, while entrees include tender filets of beef or pork, as well as chicken and fish dishes. The basic menu changes twice a year and specials are offered most nights. The wine list is equally special -- trust the waiter to suggest a wine appropriate for your entree and you may be surprised at how good, say, one of the better Cretan wines can be. It is not cheap -- a couple should be prepared to spend between 90€ and 130€ ($117-$169) depending on the number of courses and the choice of wine.
