As Cretan I am genuinely very demanding with local cuisine. Great place, quality food, fair prices! Strongly recommended!

Do not come here if you are used to bad, salty food because then you will not appreciate this great food. Everything has a personal touch. We had lunch here which was very quiet. Probably it gets more busy during dinner time. We had lunch hiere twice.

We decided to eat here one of the evenings, based on the Trip-Advisor reviews. FOR US, it was not worth it. Cocktails we ordered were blend, service slow, entrees were delicious but main course was average. Prices were amongst the highest we have payed and did not equal the quality.

But the food was cooked but didn't have any depth of flavour. Meze was bland (tzatziki, spinakopyta, cheese pie, taramasalata). Mains were competently cooked but lacked depth... More

Fresh good quality food. One billion extra points for gluten-free Calamari, and for the gluten free menu choices in general.

I can honestly say that I was served the best greek salad I have ever eaten! We went for lunch and then chose to go later in the week for evening meal. My father had the biggest sea bass that I have ever seen served! The owner is friendly and accommodating but seems to be a little stressed and describes... More

Friendliest and most accommodating people we've come across in Crete. Ioannis made the best Sangria-better tan the ones that we have tried in Spain(where we go often). The food is To die for. The place has great ambiance and we felt like we were "part of the family" whenever we ate there. Their toilets are super clean and has got... More
