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.

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.
