We had a lunch there which proved out to be the worst within two weeks of staying at Agia Pelagia. First of all, we had to wait for the soup for almost 1 hour! The same lazy service and long waiting time till the dessert resulted in ~ 2 hours for a lunch. Any pros? There is unusually free salad... More

Excellent food, fantastic location and cool music. In fact the food was probably the best in Agia pegelia, and the only negative was the service, which was slow, but the food was worth the wait!

We ventured up here from the beach after hearing it was one of the best places to eat in Agia Pelagia - it was really tasty, the milkshakes/smoothies were delicious but based on price, location and taste there are better places. Definitely try this place though if you're nearby, you'd be daft not to. Especially if you're here a week... More

We stayed at the Eva Mare hotel and had a la carte dinner nearly every night at its Yamas restaurant. They offer honest and decent local specialties, using fresh ingredients. The Santorini wine (white) was also very much to our liking. The seafood and fish was liked very much, as were the local vegetarian dishes. They were not expensive at... More

We´ve been there for our honeymoon and had the chance to get breakfast,lunch and dinner at the Yamas restaurant. The food was freshly made and the plates were well-filled. We liked the greek salad most and the starter you get before every ordered meal was definitely the best of our whole stay at Crete...and we tried many! The service was... More

We called for a drink and to admire the stunning view, we decided to ordering two starters as a snack, wow what a snack the food was fantastic and the portions were huge, we didn't bother with an evening meal after them. I would defiantly recommend the place..

We stumbled across this place for lunch after a day at the cove below. Had a gorgeous Pizza and the view looked lovely. Decided to return for dinner, another day. Wow it didn't disappoint, the main courses were fantastic and the view got better as the darkness fell with just the restaurant lights. Well worth a visit.
