We had a great meal with a variety of Greek specialties. The environment was great although it was a very hot day. We ate under the big trees and the view as well as the environment were great. All the dishes were very tasty. The Greek moussaka, the giant beans, the salads, the fish, all were... read more

Spent an evening at this fabulous resaurant. The food was excellent and plentiful. The service was friendly and efficient. On Wednesday and Friday you can enjoy live Greek music and dancing which the locals are very happy for you to join in. The retaurant is set right next to ocean with stunning views. Well worth the effort to find in... More

This is a sweet little restaurant in a beautiful location on the beach. It is very popular and the food is good - but nothing special. I was excited about dining here after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor but I was very disappointed. The service is awful. I enjoy a long leisurely meal but here we had to wait for... More

Sep 2012 had lunch here on the recommendation of friends. Traditional Cretian food cooked with heart and soul. And the beach location with outside seating under a huge tree is just so charming and relaxing. Well worth the visit

It is a very nice place to sit and enjoy the view with some nice food as well. How ever it can be very busy at one point to busy some times. But it is nice and cool under the trees. And it looks like a restaurant from the early 70' . What makes it nostalgic.
