We visited this bar during our holiday so that the men could enjoy the football as we ate dinner, the bar is very well laid out so that the tv's can be seen whilst having dinner which was ideal. Food was loverly, and very reasonably priced, service was great.....would definitely return.

We visited White Lion one evening for cocktails and snacks. The cocktails were very good and the list extensive, they were a bit on the more expensive side for Crete, but I believe that was reflected in the quality. My husband and I ordered a plate of Calamari to share, and it was good. Not the best calamari I've had,... More

We have visited this bar / restaurant two years running and we were surprised that the staff remembered us given that they are always full. They made a fuss over us (our 5 year old son thought this was awesome) and he felt very special. We went in our footie kits and they happily sorted us a space near to... More

Great bar for watching sports in Hersonissos. Lots of TVs and management very accommodating in finding any game you want ! Great friendly service. Would definitely recommend . Only thing that may improve things is audio on TV instead of background music, although it clearly is s family food pub primarily.

The food is overpriced and payed the price not for what we have eaten, Quality poor but the service it is good. In Chersonissos, they are much cheaper and better restaurant where to eat and drink.

Thank you for your comments. We are sorry you felt our food was overpriced. However, our prices reflect the top quality of our product and indeed we are competitively priced in regards to this. The majority of our customers prefer to eat the best quality food and drink "A" class alcohol and our price reflects this. More
