We dined just before sunset, and watching the colours develop in the sky whilst we ate superb food, was really wonderful. I had fresh locally caught lobster, which I selected from the tank. I also has deep fried baby squid and calamaris to start. This was... More

Romantic setting by the waves (kymata in Greek). Sushi of interesting variety and very good quality. Professional service. Not very friendly wine prices, the only reason for not giving a 5.. Not cheap, around 35-40 per person.

My wife and I had a meal here. It is a lovely modern restaurant with great views across the bay if you can get a table by the water. The food we had was lovely - I had seafood risotto and my wife had steak - and well priced considering the surroundings. The service was a little slow as there... More
