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.

We found this place several years back whilst out in the car. Now we make a point of going every year as the food is so good. Even though we stay about 40 miles away. Owned by Marius and his wife Harara, who told us that the spend about a month trying out new recipes before they open each season-... More

It's a good place for a dinner, for a coffee or just for a drink. It has a perfect view, lovely personnel, cute atmosphere and good music. We liked it! For sure we'll come back!

This place is off the beaten track but well worth the search as it has a lovely setting overlooking the town from the cliff top and the ambience is great. The food and service are excellent and the staff are very friendly and helpful. I will definitely return!
