the food is common and not high standard. But the service is good and very friendly. After one meal we even got a desert for free. Good if you're hungry. Not expensive

Great food, friendly and helpful staff, very convenient for the quiet beach. Also a view to die for. Great for an evening meal too. Keep an eye out for the interesting way they get the supplies to the restaurant.

The location overlooking the bay is great. Food was good, typical Greek, but not spectacular. Good place to stop for lunch or early supper.
