Lunch by the sea

Really nice place. We went here for lunch. Unfortunately they did not have any fresh fish this day. We ordered the green salad( which is awesome) and some garlic bread. Enough for 2 people in our opinion. Some large beers on the side off course. Service was great so overall A+ Great service

This is in a nice location but the staff let it down. Service was very slow, they even forgot our order completely, had to go to the bar to reorder. They were apologetic but will not return.

My friend and I visited here a couple of times for breakfast and lunch. The location is great, right on the beach, with amazing views. The food is lovely, great value, with a very homey, honest feel - I especially liked their Cretan omelette. The staff are friendly and courteous.

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