“Okey but nothing more”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012 via mobile

The atmosphere is very warm and friendly. The atmosphere set by the waiters is very good and welcomming... till a certain point. Before we arrived we had very high hopes seen all the reviews. The welcome and service is good. The food is okey. The view is like all the restaurants in Mariou and Myrthios have so no unique selling point there. A bit dissapointing but nice fore a visit..once

“Breathtaking!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012

This must be one of the three best restaurant views in the world (rivalling Blues near Cape Town), and the food is wonderful to match – provided you are not so bewitched by the mountains-and-sea panorama, as you sit out on the terrace under the sky, that you forget to eat it! Utterly charming family members serve you – and their father is the creative and imaginative chef. Unusually for this part of Crete (near Plakias) it's open all the year round. I'll definitely be going back. It's worth crossing the Aegean for...

“Magnificent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

fantastic panoramic mountain and sea views, delicious food, a huge variety of traditional Cretan dishes and the price is Right! You get a VIP service by the owner or the family and they all speak English! some German too, I think, haven't tried them though ;)
free WI-FI and super fresh North African breeze :)
try it on a hot night with a cold Retsina (greek wine) and a million stars shining above you...I bet you have never seen this many...
love it!
