5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

Worth reserving a table at the water's edge to enjoy the sunset. Very good food and attentive service.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

Moussaka is delicious, pita bread is the best ever tasted (not fried) and people are so nice and kind!
Quality of food is really high, prices medium/low.

“Excellent location, good food, ok service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

The location is the best thing about this restaurant. They are located right next to the beach, so you enjoy your dinner looking and listening to the waves. The food was pretty good; with the tomato/cheese bruschetta being excellent. The service was ok, but it seemed a bit unfriendly at times. Definitely worth a visit, but with a little improvement on service this could be a great place.

“Enjoy Grandma's cooking while you admire the sunset”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

There's nothing nicer than a good meal with the sea breeze on your back while watching the sun go down behind the Cretian mountains
Good service, great food - Greek wine! Super stuff. Can recommend Grandma's Chicken with lemongrass.
