Med Cafe & Restaurant, Hersonissos, Crete

This place is rated the second best place to eat in Hersonissos, Crete. Glad I didn’t know that before, another wise I would have been even more disappointed than I actually was. Ha.

This place has loads of great reviews, but for me, I just wasn’t impressed.

To start with, we shared houmous and some pita bread. A few weeks ago, my boyfriend and I watched an episode of Gordon Ramseys Kitchen Nightmares USA. He was at a Greek restaurant there. They had a houmous starter. He said it was awful. Runny and topped with too much oil. This is what that houmous starter was like. It also took ages for it to come.

For mains, my boyfriend had a mixed seafood platter and I had a steak with peppercorn sauce. A long wait, again. Both dishes were really nice though. The steak was delicious and cooked perfectly. I had asked for medium rare. The pepper sauce was also really nice.

The fact that we had to wait so long was a disappointment, though. The place was also expensive for a Greek restaurant. Overpriced for standard Greek food! A million miles away from the reviews on Trip Advisor..

    I’ve eaten here before on a recent trip to Crete and it was INCREDIBLE! Reading this made me want to go back as soon as possible, such a lovely island.

    I’m amazed at some peoples expectations. They want paradise on earth. For me Med restaurant was simply wonderful, place, cuisine, waiters, everything., “God remembers” by the way, would make me want to go back to MED once and again

      Haha, I don’t expect paradise on earth. It’s just if a place charges double the amount of those next door, the food and service better be spot on to reflect this. It simply wasn’t.
