Nice place by the beach - friedly staff but really bad wine

Waves is a nice and unpretentious 'beach shack' with reasonably good salads but really bad house wine.

The food was SO good but to have to wait for 20 mins to pay... But I would go there again!! :) It´s a bit away from the main sentrum but it is so worth it. Nice for kids also. Nice view over the sea :)

The waves bar is perfectly located, with tables over looking the ocean and away from the main Road. the food is excellent with a range of Greek and other varieties. the staff are very accomodating and relaxed, they certainly dont rush you like the UK. We Stayed in Crete for 1 week and ate at Waves Bar 3 times even... More

We ate at the restaurant during our stay in Marika Hotel. I think its affiliated with them in some way. Nonetheless they have great food. Most if not all of the materials they used were fresh and we especially enjoyed the steak. Great place to relax after a summer day at the beach.

The staff is fantastic! Friendly service and of course good food. I recomend the stuffed pork loin, the swordfish, mousaka and the cretan pizza. The pizza was so good we had it 2 nights in a row. Of course the view is nice, but the food and service is what you really enjoy.
