Great location

With tables fronting right on to the beach you can watch the sunset and enjoy the sound of the waves as you eat your dinner. The quality of the food was excellent. The only complaint was the wait time which really was too long. However, the extra little touches you get here like free Greek wine for... read more

Lovely location by the sea. Great moussaka and the mixed grill was amazing. Lovely decor, a few more twinkly lights would make the tables closer to the beach more atmospheric. Friendly staff. We will definitely visited again.

The new terraces overlook the seafront and we were welcomed warmly and served speedily. The food was tasty and the portions were HUGE - my plate filled the... More
