“Very, very fresh seafood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

Although you will spend a decent amount for the bill, it is worth it. We snagged a 60 euro/kg grouper (total 87 euros...yikes!) for dinner as well as a few other dishes. They may do this for everyone, but we did receive a Greek salad and a dessert of yogurt with cherries. Oh, and it's in a great place to watch the sunset! Just keep your eye on all of the local cats who wind their way between your feet and perhaps even snag a seat next to you. They're hungry, but not bold enough to hop on the table. :)

“Beautiful Sunset with Great Fish”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

We were recommended to go to this restaurant by our Hotel manager and it took us a while to find but the experience was well worth the effort. We had superb Lobster with a pasta cooked in Pernod it was absolutely delicious, the staff were very friendly and helpful and the grand finale was when we were brought a delicious chocolate sponge with melting chocolate - perfect end to a perfect evening. Glad we came by car though there is no way we could have walked back up the stairs!!

“Deceiving tourists, expensive food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

Amoudi Harbor is beautiful and definitely worth seeing

I would not recommend this restaurant, even though it looks so nice by the harbour and romantic because:
- fresh fish dishes are outrageously expensive
- not-too-expensive sea food options were frozen and not fresh (it was specifically written on the menu)
- mussels had a lot of empty shells (see my evidence photo). we counted the ones that without shells also and it turned out that 1/3 of mussels were just shells
- deep fried starters were very greasy (zucchini, tomato balls, aubergines)
- service was unfriendly. they also just ignored our complain about mussels

At least the sun-set view was pretty good.

Excellent fish and crustacia. A little expensive maybe but we did have the lobster and it was delicious.

“Wasted a dinner on this place”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012 via mobile

Our hotel told us this was a great restaraunt, so I ignored my tripadvisor an decided to give it a try! I decided to walk the stairs and please, if you decide to go here, just drive! Their is poop all over the stairs from the donkeys and it is such a long walk! But when we got to the restaraunt, the waiter were very rude, ignored us 90% of the time.. The food was gross.. And way too expensive! Way way too expensive! And I'm all for spending money on food! But I was extremely mad leaving here!
