We had a late lunch here last month, and it was excellent! Yes, you paid for the view, but hey, it's worth it! My seafood soup was absolutely outstanding, and a side salad of artichokes, feta, dill and lemon sauce was unbelievable! My husband loved his cream of spinach soup and simple salad of spinach, 'shrooms and pomagranet seeds. At... More

It clearly is fine Greek dining, but I found it overpriced,though excellent with a great view and a handy location. Service was precise and friendly.

Our hotel concierge got us a great table on short notice at Sphinx - and we were not disappointed. The view, the food, the wine and the service were all outstanding and worth the price. Would highly recommend Sphinx.

Read some recent reviews about ok food and not so friendly wait staff. Couldn't be more on the opposite side of the fence. My wife and I actually ate here twice during our trip. Must admit our second meal wasn't as good as our first but def because of our meal selection. Our waiter both nights was Darius he was... More

I visited this restaurant with my wife for lunch, and fortunately, we got a table with sea side. The view was nice and our assyrtico white suited to the summer blue ocean very much. We had a risotto with squid black ink and the seabass and both meals were nice. In the plate of the seabass, the sun was painted... More

The view of the restaurant was very nice however; the quality of food and and the service was terrible. The dish was very raw, you couldn't even chew it. There was so much garlic in the dish that it was not possible to taste any other flavor. Given the low quality, I believe the prices were relatively high. I had... More

This is a difficult restaurant to review as I have to acknowledge they are an international restaurant and not a taverna. The views and service are excellent. The food is good, but not great and certainly not worth the top prices. To put cost into perspective this restaurant will cost you double most other standard places on the island. I... More

It was REALLY windy when we went for dinner. The view was obscured by the plastic wind shades that were pulled down to minimize the breeze. We could still feel the gusts here and there...LOL! Food was great and the staff was very helpful navigating the menu with my son's food allergies. Was not as expensive as some of the... More

Although pricy this place is absolutely excellent. The food was delicious and non-Greek wine was available which made my evening!
