We appreciate the hospitality offered by the staff & chef. Wine expertise was very good. The food was nice but not as good as other places we have been in Crete, your vegetables need to be cooked more & presented better. Thank you.

Here's the finest "balcony" in the city embraced by the soft breeze of the Cretan Sea, offering the most beautiful panoramic views of the old city harbor and the Venetian fortress you'll ever see. The inspired menu primes your palate for fresh fish and seafood cooked to perfection, tender meats, refreshing vegetables and season salads, fine appetizers accompanied by ouzo or raki, and a variety of fine wines.
