We had a lovely meal in this restaurant. Friendly staff, offered themselves to take a picture of us even before we asked. :) And the food was great, we ordered a Cretan salad, dolmades and mushrooms. Delicious!

Decided to try this place whilst walking past with my wife. Was not disappointed. Really tasty traditional food that we both enjoyed, followed by the obligatory free dessert. Staff were very pleasant. Will definitely visit again next time in Crete.
