Proper uncomplicated Cretan grill. My favourites are lamb chops, gyros, and chicken is delicious too. House red wine is particularly good

When I'm in Greece, Makis is always the first restaurant I want to visit - that's been the case for the past decade, and it still holds true.

Can't comment about the rest of the menu, service or eating in at this place, as we had a couple of chicken souvlaki in pitta to go, but the kebabs and gyros are very tasty, very cheap and you can get some takeaway beers too.

We had been here a couple of years ago but this place seems to have gone downhill. Nice location on the beachfront. Didn't enjoy the meze, quite tasteless even the chips were poor and soggy.

Lovely grillhouse and takeaway offering simple grilled food at its best. Chicken Souvlaki in particular one of the nicest I've eaten. The whole family involved in the running of this restaurant. Everyone always made to feel very welcome. Very reasonable priced for really good quality food.

This place has a perfect setting right by the sea. Staff are very friendly & the food is good and really great value. Pitta 2.80 Euros & kids meal 2 Euros. Most family meals never came over 35 Euros. Loved this place, came back again and again!
