As implied on the subject, the fish dishes are excellent and always fresh. The cooking of the fish is perfect. Nice location on the sea side.

Tipical dishes, nice view, friendly staff and honest prices. If you are in town pick this place, we tried a couple of others but they are not really comparable.

We had a very friendly welcome and an excellent meal of sea bream (cooked by the lady owner's father) followed by raki and dessert (made by her mother)! This is a lovely place to come and enjoy a meal with a view.

Very good food, I liked the Garides(shrimp saganaki) here the best, the sauce was great. Friendly staff. Nice seating. Free raki and desert as most places.

All the food was delicious, we kept going back The highlight was the Apaki, smoked pork from Mamas kitchen. She is a brilliant cook, the seasonings are superb. The whole family were so welcoming and generous. It was the best taverna in Kissamos.

Very tasty food and great view. We all went for sea food meals, either spaghetti, mussels or sea bream and we all enjoyed our dinner. Great dessert too. Owners were really nice. They even offered us a bottle of ouzo! Definitely recommended!
