Used this restaurant for lunch if we were on the beach and went there one evening. They were also very welcoming even if we just wanted a drink. Staff very friendly, not pushy in trying to get you to come in just wished you a good evening. Food was lovely and good portions.

Use the loungers, buy the occasional coke or excellent Iced coffee, about 3pm when it's all a bit TOO hot, stroll up to the restaurant and have wondeful Greek food, with the friendly staff. Slouch back to the loungers till the sun goes down!
