Went for the view and we were not disappointed! The food was good too. It got a bit chilly after sunset so take a sweater if you are there in Sept or Oct! Definitely worth driving up there for at least 1 sunset!

This delicious taverna near Matala (5 minutes car ride), is situated on a hill from which you can enjoy a very special view of Komos bay. I suggest to go there just before the sunset to enjoy the atmosphere. We ordered the fish of the day (sea bream) that was perfectly cooked. Maybe the service is a little bit slow... More
