The menu has a great selection to choose from. While we wanted some authentic Greek food, it also can get a little tiring day after day. Wound up ordering an artichoke dish that was excellent.

This very popular restaurant has an interesting inside seating area, or outside, behind the wind break, or along the sea front with wonderful views. The very friendly owner & staff speak English, & are very attentive. There are all the traditional dishes, a couple more unusual like the delicioius Hondros, & the very best vegetarian Moussaka! Everything is beautifully cooked... More

Place looks the real authentic thing but is a bit of a tourist set up. Has been very popular over the years but we found the food average and a bit pricey. Service is good and quick but just a bit pretentious in a staged greek way??

We ate here each night of our stay in Kissamos and loved it. The food was lovely. The atomosphere was also great. We will go back ther if we are in that area again.

We ate evening meals here as part of a walking tour. With another group, we made up nearly 40 guests. We had no choice and this colours the review. The restaurant was usually busy with other guests. As other places we ate, the amount was generous meaning that much was wasted - not regarded as a problem in Greece but... More

We came here on our first night in Kissamos and were not disappointed. We are vegetarians and the selection was outstanding, the host Stelios was happy to explain all the suitable dishes and ingredients. We were glad we came early in the evening as the place was soon full and buzzing.
