Had an amazing time here, the food was excellent and fish was really fresh. We had the shrimp saganaki and the lobster pasta both of which were excellent. We had our infant daughter and the staff were very accommodating.

We came here back to back nights on our last two nights. Our only regret is that we didn’t come here every night. Every dish we had here was amazing! First night we hat the Cretan salad and the grilled octopus (favorite!)….both would try again!...More

A small, cosy restaurant with plenty of atmosphere and really excellent food. A great place to sample local food and wine. Very reasonably priced. Definitely worth a try.

After 10 days of excellent, simple but flavourful eating in Crete we decided to wrap up the trip with a more upscale culinary experience and were surprised to eat one of the less delicious meals of the trip. To be clear the service was excellent...More

You just don't go in such a place for chips, even though they do serve.
