Giritli Restaurant

Saturday dinner at Giritli
- went to see the place earlier & booked a table for 9pm
-Turkish-Cretan cuisine
.

Still some tables looked empty,
after some minutes wealthy locals arrived
- again all the tables were outside
.
Only set menu was available,
consisting plenty of cold mezes,
.
and some delicious hot mezes:
.
Griled octopus
- marvellous
.
Calamare fritti with tartar
- delicious but heavy
.
Cheese pie
- fantastic!
.
For the main course could choose from different fish,
took 1 plate of 4 different ones
and shared them:
Anchovies wrapped in wineleaves
.
Sardines

"hamsi"
.
Red mullets
.
- all absolutely delicious & fresh!
.
Deep-fried dough with honey & vanilla ice cream
- nice!
.
Bill in a box
.
Rating: 3,8/5
- fresh, delicious food,
hot mezes better than the cold ones
- good service
- mainly locals
- not easy to find, which is a plus!
- heaters outside so pleasant to sit outside
also in late October
