This is proper Cretan cooking, not tourist fodder. Like being in a country village taverna. Wonderful vegetables and Dakos, using their own ingredients. Will go back again and again. Such a genuinely warm welcome.

We ate mostly mezes which were so incredibly tasty! The atmosphere was very nice as well, the staff is kind and helpful- even if you are following a special diet. Highly recommended!

An excellent restaurant with great hosts and tasty food. The salad was the best I'd tried on the island and the rabbit, whilst simple in appearance, was full of flavour. You'll be hard pressed to find better.

An accidental find that was our best meal in Heraklion! Highly recommend. Off the beat and track just outside the busy restaurant and shopping area. If you are looking for not just traditional Greek food but the traditional Greek experience than this family run restaurant...More

Maybe it was just our luck but both meals my Mom and I ordered were so so, dry and bland. The service didn't leave a good or bad impression, but I'm pretty sure the place is run by a family.

Trusting Tripadvisor was the best thing to do for our Crete vacation, and this family restaurant was not an exception! We found it and it was nothing special looking from outside, plus there were no busy tables and we were almost ready to skip it......More

Anchorage is a family restaurant in which you will find Captain John and Mrs Irini. They are a couple in life and the owners of this real traditional place. All the products the foods are made of, are coming from Psiloritis mountain, carefully produced and with responsibility cooked. Cretan, Clean, Pure and Tasteful. You should try it and you will never forget it..
