“great food. great view”

The food at this restaurant was extremely good as was the service and the view is to die for We really enjoyed our time at the restaurant and would recommend people who visit this city should certainly try this restaurant out.

“Fantastic fresh seafood, wonderful service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

Our last night in Crete and what a way to remember the city. Excellent service, very friendly and professional staff and the food was incredible. Hot bread with Cretan oil to start followed by delicious seafood, the cars and noise of the surroundings only add to the ambience you would expect from a bustling port. We were so well looked after, highly recommended!

“Best seafront fish restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

the fish is fresh and reasonably-priced. The views are great and service is decent despite being busy in the summer months.

“typical touristic food and service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

I visited paralia restaurant with two friends from Chile and I felt dissappointed with the quality of food and service. I expected to offer my friends a good Cretan dinner, but unfortunately the food was typical 'touristic' missing the flavour of the good cretan cuisine. The noise from the cars minimises the good feeling from the fantastic view.
