Lovely traditional music and dance

Staff was very friendly and aproachable... read more

I have visited this restaurant on my vacation in Crete. I have ordered Chicken La Schef and mussels. Both of them were good and the service was very pleasant and friendly.

I am so disappointed that a restaurant in such a prime location could not match the venue with its food. A Greek restaurant that cannot produce a decent moussaka is inexcusable. What was served up was what I can only describe as "gloop" - seriously this was poor beyond belief. I went off piste with a pizza marinara which was... More

Can't comment on there other dishes as we only had that one meal there, they... More

Excellent View to the sea and beach. Watching the waves and people on the beach kept the kids occupied. The food (Kleftiko, Mussaka, tsatsiki and Pasta for the kids) and service were good also.

Walking past the white tables, chairs and canopies look so inviting especially set against a sunset over the sea. Food was good. Staff friendly.

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!
