Food was good, nothing to write home about though. Service on the other hand was surprisingly pretty terrible. The lady, most likely the owner, had quite the attitude with our table for no apparent reason. Maybe she does not like kids? Who knows. Starters arrived...More

Worth a visit , it’s one of the best restaurants of Crete. Mediterranean taste mixed with Cretan alternative food.

Food in this restaurant is very good. Vegetables grilled to perfection in olive oil and lemon . Grilled calamari was fantastic. Veal steak very tasty. Both dishes came with many vegetables and cous cous . All very tasty. Service very good.

One of the best meals we had in Greece! We had grilled fish, octopus, grilled pork, steak and the house wine. Everything was amazing. The complementary walnut cake dessert was out of this world. It’s very reasonably priced for what you get, if this place...More
