Kapetan Haralampi 6-8, Heraklion, Crete

On the surface, this rustic, elegant downtown Heraklion restaurant is too fancy for young kids. But the staff and kitchen of Peskesi are lovely and accommodating to families! Even picky eaters will find this gorgeous authentic Cretan place the perfect spot to expand horizons.

Peskesi is a true neighborhood gem for locals and visitors alike, thanks to traditional recipes using fresh ingredients from the Cretan soil and organic-fed, free-range, humanely raised animals on their own farm.
