Lovely atmosphere

We visited this restaurant on one of their traditional evening and the atmosphere was brilliant, with the Cretan music and dancing. The food was good and the staff were very friendly, would definitely recommend!

We chose this restaurant due to its proximity to our hotel and also because of the great view. We were immediately approached by very friendly staff, Sofia and Pallos (spelling?). They were helpful in choosing our dishes, warm and polite and we enjoyed the food, which was abundant and not costly at all. The freshly squeezed orange juice was great.... More

we stopped there as the restaurant had a small playground for our 3years old daughter . Beautiful view! They have the best calamari which we have been eating in the neighborhood but my shrimp salad was the worst one ever. So much fat saus in it...disgusting! So depends what you eat.

This bar / restaurant is situated right next to the sea – beach in Hersonissos, above small beach, offering snacks, sea food, proper meals and cockatils and other refreshing drinks. Really friendly staff, place with beautiful terrace, great musical background (chill-out music, new-age music, light house and contemporary). Prices are a bit higher, but it is not overpriced. A good... More

What a great place to visit especially on a Tuesday night - live Greek dancing with a terrific finale. The hospitality is the best, the food / menu terrific, location idyllic overlooking the sea - what more could you want. Great atmosphere and well recommended if you want a flavour of Greek cooking, dancing (join in !), hospitality and everything... More

Really nice view to the sea, but the food is really worse quality. Bad gyros, tzaziki, souvlaki. Just fat and no taste. Better go somewhere else for the money.

This was a beautiful restaurant right on the sea front with excellent attention to detail in its decor - it also had excellent staff, food and wine! We enjoyed a lovely last night meal here - all local dishes, all really tasty and lovely!
