Everyday we are trying new restaurants in Crete and this one was the best so far. Firstly clean table with clean white cloth! Restaurant has big terrace with beautiful view. Prices are really good (seafood plates around €13) and food quality good as well. Service great. As complimentary we got some ice creams and piece of cake. For all dinner... More

Unfortunately this wasn't what we expected! First we ordered cocktails but they were so bad. We returned for a another one but we got same no taste. Food was poor, not tasty also. Prices are high but quality very low.

Great service, food lovely, catered for our very fussy six year old grandson with a cheeseburger and no salad!! After visiting many establishments that insisted on a salad garnish which then caused ructions we at last saw him eat a fill meal. We have been visiting the area for 14 years and this was our first visit to Diogenis. Pleasant... More

This place has a magnificent view and good play area for kids up to 5 years old. The menu is vast and big platters of meat or fish. Sadly the service when we went was poor and we had to keep asking for the waiter and it took forever to get our food. Maybe better in smaller group as we... More

When we came at first we were quite unsure due to the look of the place but thought we would give it a try anyways. We are glad that we have tried it though because it was really great! Great service, staff, food, prices and atmosphere... What else could you ask for?

We were recommended this restaurant by the owner of our villa, for my sons special birthday meal. It was great the waiters were attentive, and help us to move inside after noticing that we were all a little cold. The food portions were generous, and of good standard. We were given a fruit platter on the house. Enjoyable evening..

We are always slightly sceptical of restaurants where someone stands on the street trying to drag you in, especially those with a display showing plates of food, but on this occasion they weren't that pushy so we went upstairs and were pleasantly surprised by the large open seating area. The restaurant wasn't that busy, but due to the great views... More
