After spending a long time going over the very interesting choices on the menu, our party of 5 was ready to order. Unfortunately most of what we had decided on was sold out or unavailable, as were some of our second choices. They should have warned us before we started anticipating how delicious our choices would be. The food we... More

We came with a big group and usually this makes ordering a nightmare but here the service was excellent! Very patient and friendly staff, and the food came quickly. We ordered a lot of different dishes and each was delicious, particularly the gemista and lamb with honey. The restaurant itself is also very beautiful with a breathtaking view, definitely would...

The food at this restaurant is amazing! The choices offered are regional, but with a twist. Service is always polite and the quality of the food is consistent (always a plus)!

We stopped here following our Chania landlord's suggestion, however we had already noticed this spot on our way to Balos: a beautiful Greek taverna overlooking the sea. And the food is just amazing with a decent choice of vegetarian home made dishes. We probably overdid with cheese but we cleaned our plates thoroughly. Welcoming and kind staff, handsome too ;)...

I've been to this restaurant at least 5 times the past 3 years and I recall many times suggesting this place to others after their trip to Balos beach. The restaurant is really very well decorated and looks wonderful but every time i went there, there was a problem either with the food or with the staff. The waiters are... More

Outside it looks like ordinary taverna, but inside the modern construction meets the traditional in beautiful and harmonic way. The taverna was totally full, but immediately we sat down a friendly, smiling waiter brought us small plate of salad, raki and water with the menu. In the menu could be less foods, but at least all what we ordered were... More

We ate here during our two week stay on western Crete. The food was of very high quality, to a gourmet standard, with a wide ranging, extensive menu of genuine cretan dishes. Service was excellent, prompt and very efficient. The view across the bay is an added attraction. If you are staying in western Crete you must visit it at... More
