Very friendly and helpful staff, nice food, and a fantastic location just across the road from the beach. Visited as a couple and we both loved our meals (Souvlaki combo and battered Sole). The owner also generously gave us some free ice cream as we drank our coffee before leaving. The service (as... read more

We had lunch there on many occasions. The owner is such a gentle person, quiet but friendly. It is a great place to have a relaxing lunch and we would highly recommend it.

Friendly staff, but most items Anglicised and come with chips, so it all depends what you want. My sons loved the milkshake!

Nicos and his family aren't... More

Great spot overlooking the beach. Decent food and drink at a good price. Was extremely warm in here so were all happy when we got ice cream with the bill..Only downside was the local mozzies were holding a tourist taster evening here as well, we all got at least a couple of munches each..
