Parasties is a superb restaurant, in Heraklion Town, which attracts more and more people to enjoy its Cretan based cuisine.
Restaurant "Parasties" was built in 1900 as a house with a classic modern design and a big history behind it.
It has been opening its doors to foodies in an intimate and beloved place since 1999.
The word Parasties means the traditional way of cooking in Crete before many years, a fire was between two parallel rectangular stones and a cooking pan was put above.
Because apart from the sun, beach, or perhaps the ancient ruins, there is another method of getting to know an area, that of gastronomy.
Local dishes teach us much about the geophysical and climatic conditions, the local economy, even its history.
An atmospheric, warm place and one of the most popular gastronomic hangouts of the people of Heraklion, and not only, since 2000.
Parasties constantly searches and suggests dishes from Crete and the Mediterranean to unprejudiced, adventurous, and willing palates.
In a warm elegant place and comfortable place, a group of young people is trying to reconcile memories of yesterday and materials to the eating habits of today.
Parasties tries to preserve the authenticity of the culture and tradition that surrounds us.
A cozy restaurant with an open wood-fired grill kitchen (parasies) and good for top quality meat, delicious omelets, organic fresh vegetables, and an excellent wine list.
Maybe yes ... don’t forget to taste the homemade Loukoumades (like doughnut holes) with ice cream, chocolate soufflé, Galaktoboureko (like custard-filled pastry), halva, or fruit, and of course Cretan raki.
The restaurant is located at Chandakos 81, near the “Bedenaki”, the Dominican Church of Saints Peter and Paul and the Natural History Museum.
