...late at night during August in Crete? True story! Good food, good wine (Cretan, their suggestion),perfect deserts, just by the sea, really interesting "whatwasup" with Akis (the manager/owner) till late with more wine, created a night that all four of us still remember. Not just food. Lifetime memories. Looking forward revisiting. Cheers.

I visited last June with my family. Excellent food, traditional plates and very nice stuff. Prices were also good and the portions of food make you full quickly :) My favourite plate was the barbecue pork. Would definitely visit this place again next time.

Six of us ate on this night... More
