Shirley Valentine might have intrigued us enough to visit this apparently idealic eaterie located on the beach front, like Shirley I felt like packing my bags (wallet) and leaving well before we finally got our not insignificant bill. The food was lovely don't get me wrong, I had avocado and shrimp to start - it isn't like a prawn cocktail! (unfortunately) - and grilled octopus to follow, literally a plate of sliced, grilled octopus, no accompaniment. The wife had sushi to start and shrimps with linguine to follow. The quality of the food is high, to be honest that I expected.
What really differentiates a restaurant for me is the service, here it was non-existent, for the first time in my life I didn't leave a tip. Took a very long time to be served, and c25 mins for drinks order to arrive, waiting staff paid little attention to our experience and at best were aloof, at worst we're just surly. "You don't come to Greece and have sushi.". The only saving grace is that this culinary observation was from an Australian member of serving staff, culinary finesse not being a forte of our antipodean brethren, and frankly I'll pay for and eat what I want thank you.
After the mains, our table was completely cleared, I wouldn't have stayed for desert, but how would they know that? Some 15 minutes after asking for the bill, I got up to use the toilet, at which point the waiter who I had asked to bring the bill, presumably thinking I was leaving, rushed over and asked if I had paid?! No I haven't, I'm still waiting for you to bring me the bill.
In summary, fabulous setting, nice ambience and pretty good food, but on an island reliant on tourism and recommendations, this isn't enough to be honest, I'd sooner spend half as much and feel like the customer is appreciated.
Aforementioned two courses each and bottle of Prosecco €105.
