Today I visited this area of Crete, as I like to travel and see places when I go on holiday.

I passed here walking to some sights and a guy came out to try and pull us in, but I wasn’t hungry at that point so I said maybe later (he probably thought I was just saying that).

After taking in more sights my stomach told me its time for some food, so I decided to keep my word and head back.

The sea view from this location was very nice and added to the relaxing atmosphere.

Since I was here I wanted to try something different, as I always go for burgers so I went with the Calamari.

The Food…

Starter

CALAMARI 13.95

crispy squid seasoned with spices, fresh dill and onions served with tzatziki

On arrival, this was a good sized portion, so I was happy as I was very hungry.

As you can see from the photo, you have your tentacles and your more traditional rings of calamari.

Perfection! the tentacles and the rings were cooked perfectly and melted in my mouth. The flavour was good from the batter, and with some extra mayo.

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 5
Presentation : 5
Value for Money : 5

Overall

Overall I have no complaints, the view and the food was really good.

As I drank my nice cold beer and looked out at the sea I was very relaxed.

If I visited again I would come back here.

I came across this little place by accident, as my girlfriend and I were walking looking for a place for a coffee.

Eusebi is a medium sized deli, and a very Italian feel and look to it. It has that family feel to it, as there are lots of family photos from what looked like when it opened, and to the present day.

While sitting I had a look about, for me it felt very much like a little Italian cafe I sat in when I was in Italy.

The walls had different products to buy, or that the shop used. You could buy different meats, chickens, breads etc and it was just a very relaxing atmosphere.

Tonight we decided to have only a Cappuccino each and share a Tiramisu.

The Tiramisu was really nice, creamy, and so smooth and tasty.

The coffee was very nice, so nice I even asked what beans they were using as I would get some next visit.

Overall :

Overall my first experience here was a really nice one, and its on my list to visit again and try more items.

I felt very relaxed and not rushed to leave, I could have sat and sipped on my coffee all night.

This was my second visit to the Dakota Glasgow, as it was another family dinner. See first visit review here

Just like the first time we opted for the market menu, which is £15 for 2 courses and £20 for 3.

Again we were greated by the very friendly staff and shown to the lifts, where we went downstairs to the restaurant area.

Starter

Chicken Liver Parfait (walnut brioche & fig jam)

1z2pf4rjtonu2j5gz6kfz3q

The last time I was here I had the soup and was looking forward to having it again, but unfortunatley this updated Market Menu didnt have it so I opted for the Parfait.

I am guessing the change was due to the season, or if a few items were not that popular.

I am a big fan of Chicken Liver Parfait, and its always very hit or miss when I order it. Tonights was probably the best ive had for a very long time, it was soft, melted in your mouth and with the brioche it was a really nice flavour.

Cost N/A (part of market menu)

Main

Tomato, Lentil & Coconut Curry (basmati rice & condiments)

For me my options for my main were limited, nothing really grabbed me so I just opted for the curry.

The curry was nice, it had a little kick to it but it failed to have any coconut taste which was a dissapointment to me as I love a nice coconut curry. I dont think I would order this dish again, and the condiment yes it was presented nicely, but it didnt really add to the dish.

Cost N/A (part of market menu)

Dessert

Lime Tart with Ice Cream

This was very nice and too easy to eat, I could have gone for another slice.

Overall :

Overall I had a nice meal, again the staff were very plesant and very helpful.
