New China Restaurant

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "A taste of Authentic China in Greece!"

Quote:
I new of this restaurant for a few weeks before we decided to go, as we were in Greece we thought we should eat more local dishes. However after a while Greek food all starts to taste the same especially after 2 weeks eating 3/4 times a day. It does get boring, so we decided to try and locate this Chinese restaurant (The only one in Hersonissos)...... Put it like this it felt like the best meal we had since we arrived, we were not disappointed. First of all the location of this restaurant is so so it is in the center however it is in one of the small narrow backstreets which is difficult to see from the main street. So you need a map or GPS. So this does take a little time but if you are p...Read More

Where to start other than saying this is the best place in Crete if you just want to have fun fun and more fun......This is a late night venue only so If you go before 12 then you will be disappointed with the lack in people there, so start off in a restaurant or bar before you go here. Here all the staff are great fun, the drinks are average price, but they give lots of free vodca and sambuca, and there are many many people, especially lots of Scandinavian girls!! :)) The music is top notch, with a great range of new and up and coming tunes.First of all the location is perfect, like paradise, its near the cost and the centre of the strip. where most people walk, which is great...Read More

Royal Belvedere

Hotel | "A Royal Hotel"

On arrival we were very impressed by the short transfer time and the appearance and size of the resort which looked amazing, and the speed and efficiency with checking in was spot on!. Even some food was prepared despite it being almost midnight, and we were able to enjoy a few drinks before calling it a night. One problem with the location is that there is a really long hill to climb from the entrance to the location of rooms and reception but there are a few golf buggy zooming around which you can jump on. The room was fairly basic compared to the lovely grounds around, but so long as there is a bed and toilet I am happy and I dont plan on staying there much anyway. Most rooms have amazi...Read More

Restaurant | "Another Irish Bar"

Location of this bar is great! it faces the beach and it is on the famous strip of clubs and bars in hersonissos. However unlike the other Irsh Bar I mentioned, this bar is a little dull for me.The prices of drinks are ok and the bar looks very nice, It has 2 floors and spacey. However there was no atmosphere there, there was never much life, I think the staff try to hard to have fun and be happy so it looks a tad forced. Because of this there was also never many people in there, I would go in for 1 beer and just leave. Maybe if all you want is a qite few beers then go here, especially upstairs. Downstairs theres load music and some entertainment from the staff. But what could they do when there...Read More
