Good

We visited this restaurant while being on vacation in Greece. It's a good place to have lunch or dinner - food is fresh and tasty and the service is quite good. Prices are moderate.

As in all Greek places - when You order the food You get additional bread with home made Greek seasoning, 'rakija' and dessert afterwards. Also, a very nice chief - he not only came to talk to us but also brought a map and showed what to visit in Crete and how to get there. We ate there three times... More

Really very average. No warmth from the owners and food that was just about ok. We went based on trip advisor recommendations but there are far better places to eat.

This place definitely earns it's score by the quality of the food. It has traditional Greek cuisine as well as some Italian dishes and a number of specialties. However it can get rather crowded

The service was excellent with humour but attention to detail. The food (lobster, snails, pork belly, beef stifado and roast chicken was first class. Recommend

The restaurant is located at the main road as most of the restaurants in and near Amoudara. Cars drive, some with loud music, but it does not disturb in a way that you can't enjoy your meal. Just don't expect a super quite place. It is very cosy, nice athmosphere, many flowers, clever lighting and comfortable surroundings. The staff is... More

We had a very nice graviera saganaki, mousakas and a Greek salad. Nice service and place. The prices are reasonable. Worth visiting.
