Excellent meal

Very friendly welcome. Wine was the best we tried in Crete - Douloufakis Chardonnay. We had the crocodile plate and that was fantastic.

We sat there just for refreshments and were very Dissapointed as orange juice was from a carton, milk cocktail made of the powder. You would expect these thing to be fresh in Creta.

We had dinner in this place and absolutely loved it. The owner was very proud of his place and made sure we were having a good time. The food was excellent and the Greek wine (Syrah) was very tasteful.

Nice atmosphere and very friendly service. Menu is more on the meaty side of things. We had the crocodile plate for two wich was just enough for 2 hungry people.

If you like meat then this is the place for you, vegetarians are not very well catered for here as it is predominately meat. My husband loved it for me there could have been a little more "greenery" to go with the food, otherwise very good food

This port view restaurant has had a recent make over, and it's a great place if you love steaks! They specialise in meat, so beef steaks and ribs being the most popular.
