“Surprisingly good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

We were by the harbour on a scorching day and just wanted to grab some lunch we stopped here expecting it to be a bit of a tourist trap. We just ordered salads, a greek salad and a cretan salad each but they were huge and so tasty and they cost about €4 each. They were loaded with beautiful fresh tomatoes and cheese and tasted great. It was a real surprise. Service was good and the harbour view is of course a plus.
