After dinner decided to stop for a ice cream. View of the harbour entrance was good as you could watch pirate ships coming and going. The ice cream Sunday was big enough to satisfy two. The waitress had a good grasp of English and service was good. Also a good place to watch the fish fight for bread that people... More

Only are here for breakfast, but was very nice. My daughter's loved the crepes and even asked for toppings not on the menu, which wasn't a problem. Friendly service and beautiful views, could sit the all day.

We stopped here for a quick lunch. Prices were cheaper than average and whilst the food was good I noticed little things like only white bread and frozen not fresh chips. I'd rather pay a bit more for those options. They were generous portions however.

Our meal here was definitely one of the best we've ever had in Crete (and we've had a few over the years!). We sat overlooking the sea with the most perfect, relaxing view. The Kleftiko was melt in the mouth and so delicious. The waitress was really helpful (and patient) even though she was on her own and obviously busy:... More

This was a great place to sit and have breakfast in the morning over the sea. The waitress is very friendly and the sausage and egg toasted baguettes are delicious.

Lovely tavern/restaurant. Great food with a wide selection or just relax with a drink watching the sunset or watching life go by. Both ate or just visited for a drink. Friendly staff.
