We had an evening meal here which was average compared to others we have eaten in the same location. Waiters were friendly, welcoming and attentive but we felt the food was only average. We ordered a chicken dish which came with chips and rice, and the Greek meze meal. Food arrived very promptly, which made me feel it had been... More

This restaurant is situated on a platform/jetty which protrudes into the sea. On our first visit it was particularly busy and we were lucky to be escorted to a table for two near to the end of the jetty. We intended to order a mixed fish and seafood dish for two as we were assured that there’s was the freshest... More

The staff are very nice, they're very friendly and love to have a chat. They give you some bread and a garlic spread for a starter for free. They are quick with getting your drinks and food. By the time I have ordered my meal they brought the food 5-10 minutes later. The food was amazing and watching the sea... More

If you fancy eating your dinner overlooking the water, this is the restaurant for you. They have a large range of fresh seafood to choose from amongst other traditional Greek meals. The views from this restaurant are incredible, worth a visit in the afternoon and in the evening. Staff were attentative but not overwhelming.

Great setting right by the sea - we had a table outside & it was lovely. Sadly, the food didn't live up to the setting. Of our four meals, only one was hot despite us asking specifically for our meal to be served hot & on hot plates. Post microwave, my steak came back very good indeed with a great... More

Visited with hubby and 2 teens 12 and 14. Garlic shrimps are to die for, service was excellent, all staff couldn't do enough for you. Free bread with garlic before meal and free homegrown watermelon after meal, reasonable prices 65 euros for 4 for meal and drinks and my garlic shrimps were the best meal I have ever tasted. Lovely... More

Restaurant has an amazing location. We had a lunch there after our trip to Spinalonga. Harris was so welcoming and did his best to serve us. The food was delisious. Wish all the best to Harris and his team. Thank you! Eleonora, Alexander, Olga and Nikita *****

The staff are keen to get you in, but once in you're left. There seems to not be enough staff to cover the guests. Our kids were told what would come with their food but when it arrived non of it existed. The food took ages to come and was most unimpressive.

We had no trouble with choice being Vegan at Poulis. They have a varied menu. Average value for money. We sat right at the edge of the jetty, where the water lapped just below our feet, perfect!. Such a beautiful setting. The staff are friendly and food good.
