An oasis of genuine cretan local cooking at very competitive prices in a area of cloned seafront eating places. Only a limited menu but if you want a more authentic experience without going beyond the immediate area this is the place. Do not expect luxury or wide choice but a homely welcome with home cokked food.

All the charm of what you expect from a Cretan restaurant. Genuine home cooked food. Excellent prices. Ambience a knockout for lovers of tradition and a bonus of right on the sea front. We loved it

Very close to our hotel so a favourite place for pre dinner drinks, the food that came with our ouzos seemed to be slightly more authentically Cretan and was delicious

We visited here twice during our stay, it has a lovely outlook over the sea and a very relaxing atmosphere. It has a small meze menu but as all dishes are traditional and home made this makes a refreshing change.

We ate here a few times - food was really tasty and really good value. We ordered a few mezzes and also got some further free ones with our drinks and free watermelon at the end of our meal too. Try the Cretan rusk/bread (Dakos) with the dips. Lovely garden setting opposite the sea/peninsula and friendly staff.

The garden is a lovely place to sit, although the seats are uncomfortable for any length of time, and the tables are too low and small to eat comfortably. It is frequented by locals, which is a good sign. Generous free snacks with drinks. Main course food patchy. Snails were tough and far too salty, squid was soggy. Good salad... More
