If you love fresh fish, the traditional Greek appetizers and the “Politiki Kouzina” (like the movie: “A Touch of Spice”), you should definitely visit “The Karnagio” (meaning: : “The Shipyard”), a traditional fish-ouzo tavern opposite the mall Talos Plaza at the coastal of Heraklion, where you can enjoy a feast of flavors and images.Overlooking the deep blue of the Aegean Sea, you can enjoy traditional wine or ouzo at an incredibly warm and hospitable environment. The artistic decoration of the interior is in perfect harmony with the outer sea scene: classic, with earthy colors, decorated with graphically designed gravures and “old” wooden tables and chairs, sail canvas, paintings of seascapes and sailboats, anchors, ship supporting ropes and wooden sailboats. In summer is available a very pretty courtyard near the sea.
The food is excellent quality and hard to find in a traditional tavern. The method of cooking, the recipes and the combinations of products are more reminiscent of professional chefs culinary creations in a gourmet restaurant. Recipes from every part of Greece with modern Mediterranean influences create unique dishes!
Whatever taste will satisfy you completely. The menu include a wide variety of salads, seafood and fresh fish. We suggest to taste seafood salad, grilled sardines, calamari, grilled octopus, smelt fish, stuffed calamari, fried shrimp with feta and tomato, lobster, seafood paella and a great variety of the fresh fishes. For dessert, enjoy traditional Cretan raki with Greek spoon sweets (syrupy preserves of fruit, rinds, nuts, and vegetables), halvah and ice cream. The words are probably unnecessarydbo.Restaurants.
