After quite a steep hike to this restaurant, we are active pensioners bye the way. It was a very hot evening and we were dripping by the time we were shown to our table. We were not offered any water and not offered a menu for quite a while... not a good start. However we ordered our meal, husband ordered pork souvlaki and I had chicken escalope in cream and mushroom sauce. The pork was full of gristle and inedible and my chicken was well below par. We asked for the bill and went discreetly to the manager to complain. Her reaction was disgraceful, she argued with my husband that he should have complained earlier, and said she was too busy to discuss the matter, albeit the dish was removed from our bill., but the view is wonderful shame that the restaurant food and service falls way below par.

We have been going back to this great place for 3 years. View is amazing. The service is great from the very warm family. They are great with the kids and the kids love the fun desserts. Lamb kleftiko made by the mother is a treat.

On our first day on Crete we chose to go up to Vigli restaurant based on the reviews on trip advisor. We can assure that you’ll have a great evening at Vigli with great food, courteous, friendly staff & owners and nice panorama view. Even though it’s a bit further away from the center it’s worth making your way up there.

We stopped in for a couple of drinks after visiting the war museum, church and cemetery. The views are great and the service was quick. We didn't eat, but I had a freshly squeezed orange juice that was very tasty. On the second floor the views are even better and there is less noice from tv and radio. Can be recommended for the great view!

Best view and amazing service! The food was good but a bit average. The view is the main attraction here. Must visit!
