The meat was melt in your mouth and in typical Greek fashion...the serves were very generous with garlic bread and caramel desserts supplied at no extra cost. We asked for vegetables and got coleslaw. I think something got lost in the translation. lol. The beer was cold and the service excellent. Beautiful view over the port.

We had one of the several combination dishes that this good restaurant offers: calamares and sole. Both were good and the price was OK.

One of the best restaurant in Makry Gialos. The food like Horta, souvlaki and Cretan White wine was the best. Recommend this restaurant strongly.

Staying close to the ocean makes you want to eat fresh seafood, right? Unfortunately, many restaurants in Crete tend to lean on serving up chicken, pork, steaks etc - stuff you can get anywhere else on earth. So finding this place - with their own fishing boat to deliver fresh seafood - was a gem. I´d definitely come back to... More
