Spectacular view

My husband and I came here primarily for the view. We thought we might eat some light food, not a whole meal. The owner was apologetic about many things not being in season. It was nice he was honest about the quality and origin. What he said about the Greek economy was also interesting!

Came upon this restaurant by accident. A lucky accident from where we viewed a stunning sunset and ate a great supper. Shown into the kitchen where we chose our fish. Started the meal with some tsadsiki and a huge salad. The bream was fresh and simply grilled, a squeeze of lemon and a carafe of wine to wash it all... More

We would like to come back again and again... We had a nice dinner in a romantic table with an incredible seaview. The food was good: fresh tuna fillet and mixed grilled fish.

This is one of my favourite restaurants EVER. Fantastic views (go for an early dinner so you catch the sunset over Komos beach from the cliff top) and lovely fresh fish. The owner is absolutely charming and I was amazed at their fluency in a number of European languages.

After being driven off Komos beach by the Meltemi we stopped for lunch at The Mystical View and enjoyed a massive Greek Salad and very special home-made Taramasalata and vowed that we had to return in the evening for dinner. We were so glad we did. The view along the coast to towards Kalamaki and Tympaki is awe-inspiring and worth... More

I loved this restaurant. What a setting. Perched on the edge of a cliff with soaring views. The sun sets over the sea so you can drink a glass of wine and watch the sun sink into the sea - just beautiful. The staff are friendly and warm and attentive. The food was good and service is quick. Bring a... More

I visited with family in May 2015. The location is simply stunning. The restaurant overlooks the bay and you can see the beautiful sunset. For starter I had Dakos. The dish was lovely and the portion was huge! So big the restaurant owner kindly allowed me to take half home for breakfast the next day. For main course I had... More

One of the best restaurants we went to in Creta. Excellent price for the quality of the food. Fresh seafood, tasty vegetables. Everything you can expect from a touristic restaurant by the sea, with a good price and great quality. The fried zucchini and eggplant were delicious, light, crispy and melting in the mouth:) Warm and efficient service. And amazing... More

We had dinner here two times. The restaurant is on top of a hill with a stunning view over the sea in the direction of Agia Galini. The food has a good taste and quality. The staff was friendly and had a very good sense of humour! Recommendation.
