Taverna Niki

Greek in Iraklio Province

After visiting the Panagia Kardiotissa, stop for both a view and a bite at Taverna Niki, on the corner as you leave Kerá. Niki cooks up daily treats in a traditional wood-fired oven; these are the most reliable dishes; you can really taste the smoky flavours. She’s renowned, too, for the most simple of dishes, a potato omelette.
