Place is ok, food average at best, but I got the kind of answer that should have made me get up and leave. While asking about the menu options and if the fish came with any side dishes, the guy just bursts out that "this is a Greek restaurant, you are in Greece and have to eat like one"!!! To... More

The location is lovely, but that is the only positive thing I can say about this place. The service is was awful, and the server was very rude. He should be in another business, but not that of serving tourists. The food was very average.

Stopped here for lunch after a visit to the Red Beach. Plenty of tables and lots to sit nearby to the sea and enjoy the sound of the waves. We had a good plate of tsatziki, fresh tomatoes, cheese and calamari.

Fresh food, good service, amazing views and a great atmosphere, what more could you want? It was a little busy so head there a little early, but apart from that, there is nothing but praise here! 45€ for 2 mains, 2 starters and drinks.

The environment is nice and lobster spaghetti is delicious BUT 65€ for a spaghetti for 2??? Are you serious guys! Very bad service, good for Greek & bad for the tourist. We regret not to go next to this place that has a better tripadvisor review.

Lovely waterfront family owned restaurant, close to the Red beach. Fresh fish, all the food made from scratch. Great memories!

we stopped here for lunch as it was recommended by our hotel concierge - what a disappointment - the only good thing about the meal is the bread! we ordered a variety of fresh cook fish - i think the fish must been at the bottom of the freezer - taste awful. The service is worse; tourists got treated as... More

When we come down the stairs we were taken with the location right on the water. It is very beautiful. But unfortunately the service was bad and the food was really bad. The fish was overcooked and dry. If you go, just have drinks and enjoy the view.

Great setting with tables lined up along the jetty, crystal clear waters, real fresh sea food for a fraction of the price paid in Oia or Thira, warm welcome and service, just perfect before the digestive walk to the Red Beach.
