Great location overlooking the marina, how hard could it be to get a couple of coffees? Too hard it seems, the wait was inordinately long, the staff seemingly disinterested. So bad was it the first time that I didn't believe it was true, so gave them a second chance and tried a day or so later. Well that was a... More

We first went to this relaxed cafe/ restaurant for a coffee and were pleasantly surprised by the food we saw coming out of the restaurant. One night we wanted a quick, easy not overly expensive dinner so went back. The food is very fresh, a simple menu some mains and a pizza menu. We tried a bit from each and... More

Arrived at 9.50am just before kitchen closed for breakfast. Ordered coffees and 3 breakfasts. My daughter and I had the mushrooms and prosciutto which came with a piece of whole grain toast.

Excellent place to break-fast, overlooking the marina. Prices are a wee bit stronger but then you are in a pretty special island! Food was excellent, service was efficient too. Will visit again!

Kid friendly place we went to for lunch. I had the saganaki and prawns, the wife had the salmon pizza. She liked the salmon pizza, which was quite simple. While the saganaki I had was quite sweet and generally off putting. The prawns were quite good but the accompaniment was boring and not very interesting. Great location and excellent service.

A great view out to the marina. Sat on the terrace and had a lovely lunch by the water. I think it would be best for lunch. It is just recently renovated so was clean and nice. Staff were very good and helpful..

The restaurant doesn't deliver during the school holidays so we picked it up and took it back to our accommodation. The pizza was great, piping hot, a little pricey but very tasty. Definitely would go back for another.

We only had to wait about 20min for a table even though it was a busy night. Both the maitre d and waiter gave fantastic service and the food was also really good.
