We had a traditional Cretan cuisine menu platter which was lovely! It was a good way to get a taste of local delicacies! Our waitress was very attentive and we had a lovely meal here!

This was our last meal of the holiday; we had eaten only Greek food during our time here and almost all of it was good. his restaurant didn't disappoint, overall the food was very good (my wife said the chicken souvlaki was the best she'd had), and apart from sending back a half carafe of rose wine which tasted watery,...

This restaurant was recommended to us by other guests as the best fisherman's plate. Good price compared to some of the others and lots of choice on the dish - worth a visit definitely!

We were enticed into this taverna by a very friendly lady who explained the menu to us. We were sold and proceeded to enjoy a lovely couple of hours eating, chatting and watching the world go by whilst drinking the very palatable house wine. Very reasonable priced too. Would definitely return again.
