Garlic bread, tsatziki and baked feta for starter. The baked feta was so good that I will go back just to get it once more. Friendly staff and great location at the Beach. Ordered beef for main course and it tasted real good, plenty og vegetables and sause. This was my best meal during my 14 days... read more

A basic seafront restaurant, Greek style. Menu is decent and a bit all over the shop – mixed grill platters next to American hamburgers. Servings are large and unrefined rather than well executed. Children can easily share a dish and most adults will not finish their serving. We ordered Bolognese for the kids and they ate less than half each.... More

The location if this restaurant is excellent - right on the beach.. The food was the best I've had yet in Crete, highly recommend the kleftiko and the stifado was a large portion. Staff were friendly and efficient, no dirty plates!

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.
