“Our favourite lunch spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

The food and service are excellent, and it is impossible to tire of view over the sea! The staff are extremely welcoming.

“Great view, poor food.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013 via mobile

While the staff was very helpful and friendly, the food wasn't that great. We were pretty disappointed with everything we ordered. But the view at sunset made it worth it.

“How can I not leave a review.....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

We have stayed here on more than 5 occasions, which I guess says it all really.
We have had the top floor apartments as we have usually gone with another couple.
The balcony is HUGE and watching the sun go down over the 'Dragons Head' with a cold Mythos....
We have got to know the family well, so maybe they treat us a bit better, but I doubt it.
Eating has always been a complete pleasure and a fantastic experience.
If you want anything specific, just ask and they will try and accommodate.
Manolis is your archetypal 'Cretan' with his fierce looks and stunning moustache, but when his face breaks into a smile........
Love Plakias, Love Tassomanolis.....

“Great fish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

Excellent choice of fish dishes – the one we tried was excellent. If you are not a sea food lover then there is still a good selection of meat dishes which were just as tasty. On the night we ate here the taverna was really busy which says a lot about the quality of the place.

“Back for a second year of superb fresh fish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Last year, the grilled fish was amazing. This year, it was just as good. Lovely people, great atmosphere, just a perfect end to a day in a most magical corner of Crete.
