Beautiful place to visit

We didn't eat here (as we were staying all inclusive close by), however, my husband and I did visit for an iced coffee a couple of times and it was lovely to sit at the back of the restaurant on the edge of the sea in the beautiful sunshine. I'm sure it would be lovely to eat here in the... read more

Table for 4. It was near the end of the season, so it was fairly quiet for a Saturday night. Wide range of cocktails. Delicious starters and MASSIVE mains. Complementary flavoured Raki, fresh and candied fruit and baklava with ice-cream. Yummy and not too badly priced, about 30 euros per head including cocktails.

My wife and I visited this bar restaurant each day during our October holiday, having been fortunate enough to have found it ealy in the week. There are tables by the edge of the sea, where you can just relax and take in the beautiful and peaceful sea and coast views. The floor is covered with imitation grass, giving the... More

Island is a little more expensive, but, does come up with the goods, staff who actually seem to enjoy their work and it shows. A must to visit at least once.

A very nice, very well priced sea front restaurant. The staff are incredibly friendly and easily visible should you need anything. Myself and my partner ordered a 10 dish sea food platter, drinks and a fruit platter for desert for a very reasonable 70 euros. Everything tasted fresh and was well prepared, with only a short wait time for service.... More

Upon arrival, we ordered cocktails, which were watery and not that nice. We had Fried Shrimp to start. We got lots which was good. BUT: the chef had literally put prawns (whole, with shells heads and legs) straight in the batter. So in order to eat the shrimps, we had to peel the batter off - who does that?! I... More

After a nice swimming day in the beach, I went with my family to the Island restaurant for lunch. We had Cretan traditional foods. The Chef cooked in front of us flabe meat!! And totally it was a marvelous experience. Also, impressing was the high cleaning level of all the restaurant spaces, even we found toilets for kids and disabled... More
