With a lovely view to the sea, this restaurant is the major beneficiary of day trippers in high season due to its prime position directly below the castle. Food and drink are reasonably priced but – based on the evidence of a simple order of...More

We ate a lot of times in this beautiful taverna during our accommodation in Fata Morgana suites. The food was delicious and good quality. The service from young kind people even better! We recommend!

Nestled between beach and Frangokastelo Castle. The tavern offers a reasonable meal, it is not a Michelin restaurant but suffices for the location. The staff are attentive.

The location is to die for, with views along the beautiful Orthi Ammos beach and across the bay. The food is far better than a standard Greek tourist restaurant. Almost all the produce is sourced locally, much of it from the Papadakis family's own farms....More

We arrived there almost by accident, as we were exploring the area - the restaurant is located at the end of the road. The service was efficient, the food was fresh and excellent. We had some dakos, fried calamari, and a salad. It was impeccable.

The food was better than any of the other tavernas we visited, and in bigger portions. Either way the view makes this place worth it!

This taverna towers over Orthi Ammos beach and overlooks the Libyan Sea. With that view, and with the peace of the Frangkastello area you don't need food to be happy. Still, food here is in the very good end of the classic taverna scale, honest...More
