A great place to eat, excellent food and views! With the addition of BeeRaki next door serving great beer it’s a perfect afternoon/evening.

We had read the reviews and we certainly were not disappointed. Location, staff and food were perfect. We ate here twice and could not fault the place. We chose the house specials first visit lamb ribs and chops second visit beef stifano.

Excellent view, great food and friendly service - but not good if you are allergic to cats! Recommend to get here to see the sunset, but great views over Elounda at night. Food is great and plenty of it at a very reasonable price.
