Perfect location and view. Excellent food quality and big portions. Free garnish for some seafood, free water and desert. Relatively slow food preparation.

Disappointing food, horrible salads, overpriced fish and strangely cheap meats, untrustworthy and dirty waiters who put fingers in your food and don't even say sorry. Never again.

Had dinner here one night. all of the food was delicious. The Pastitscio was really good. My wife had a mixed grill. The only problem was that they served my dish, and 15 minutes later my wife's came. I wasn't too happy about that. The restaurant is right on the water so there's some great ambiance. It definitely gets crowded... More

This Taverna has been serving great food for years. Great location coupled with friendly Cretan hospitality. Enjoy the view of the Gulf of Kissamos while you eat some fresh seafood and drink retsina.

A nice place at the sea side to have lunch or dinner. Slightly above average with prices but it is worth it.

The fish couldn't be fresher if they had jumped from the sea and on to your place. They could do that, as you are sitting on the edge of the beach, like Shirley Valentine. Many other traditional plates available. Check out the food in the kitchen before you choose.

We enjoyed a typical greek evening with good food, friendly service and a spectacular rising of an orange moon over the close mountains. We were not very hungry that night because we had an opulent snack in the mountains before and the owner proposed a small fish plate which turned out to be huge but as the quality was excellent...
