Close to the nightlife of Hersonissos but just outside the crowdy noisy area where one can enjoy a fresh meal and signature cocktail with the combination of the breathtaking beachfront view of the sea and the sunset with the sounds of chillout and lounge music. The menu consists of local and international favourites including the home-ade mousaka, chicken BBQ pizza , locally farmed lamb chops and daily caught seafood dishes. To top things off, try our signature coffees and traditional home-ade kadaifi.

A true family affair

Lovely restaurant over looking the sea. Live lobsters,just pick the one you want. Papa grows all the Herbs along side the building. He will offer advice to anyone who asks and to some that don't even have to ask. Genuine Greek hospitality from a well respected family. It has been our pleasure... read more

We went here on the strength of the reviews on trip advisor. It is a little away from the rest of the main drag but thus is definitely a good thing. Things started out great, we had a lovely table for two right on the edge of the rocks with a beautiful view out over the bay. Perfect. The waiter... More

Go for the steak - however you may need to ask for some alternative sauce apart from BBQ. Good sized portion and for two people with drinks about 30 euros

"Close to the busy nightlife of Hersonissos, but just outside the crowdy center" - the location was described quite honest. Stopped by a couple of times. The gorgeous sea view is difficult to spoil or characterize, but the tables right by the sea definitely were a very good idea. The background music is 90% perfect. The service is affable, friendly...

A great place with excellent service, great food and a lovely view. We ate here on the back of the reviews And it didn't disappoint. The service was friendly but not intrusive and you are left alone to enjoy the food. The food itself is superb with quality ingredients. The key to this restaurant is its simplicity with both the...

Very nice romantic place with very good service and tasteful food, good local wine. Everything at reasonable prices served nice ever smiling waitress. i can recommend their mussels in white wine with ginger. Evenings with live latin music were nice and a lot of guests are lured to dance.

We ate here several times and had Steak and chips, I say steak it was more like half a cow. With Ronnie and Anka serving us as we sat near to the wall with the sea crashing on the rocks below which had tables for the romantic person. We would recommend this and will go back again
