The ONLY bad dining experience I've ever had in Crete. Nice courtyard tables. Scruffy unhelpful staff, dirty, poor service, overpriced, limited menu - "I'm sorry we don't have that". The Day Menu advertised outside was not available early afternoon. Just not what I've come to expect in Crete.

Dinner was overpriced and quality of food was poor: risotto was greasy and the pizza was claimed to be cooked in brick oven but it was not the case. We paid 2 euro service per person which did not include water, nor dessert and raki- first time we were not offered dessert and raki in 10 days. Only positive note... More

Well worth a visit. Great service (there was a beautiful free veg soup as a starter) and the pizza took a little while to come but the waiter was genuinely sorry. It's in a lovely cool courtyard and very pleasant indeed.

We found this restaurant almost by mistake, but were very pleasantly surprised. The food was very good (the grilled octopus was amazing!) and the service was friendly and laid back. Not recommended for people in a hurry, but if you can take the time to enjoy this, you won't regret it.

Maybe I need to clarify the title! Well, it was a surprise for us to find in Crete a very good restaurant not specializing in Cretan cuisine and making the effort to present international dishes instead. The result is pretty good and maybe the only caveat is that's a bit pricey.

The rude staff gave us a table far away from everyone else and then ignored us. The food was poor and the starter and main came at the same time.

Wish I'd read other reviews before we went in but we were seduced by the pretty surroundings. The food was indifferent although my husband's chicken was good. My ,bio' salad with cheese, honey and sesame was a plate of enormous leaves dressed with a sharp vinaigrette and meagre sesame covered slivers of cheese. There was no discernible flavour of honey....

We decided to go in this restaurant appealed by their organic menu. It was a bit more pricey than the other restaurants but the atmosphere seemed quite good. Good music, the waiter was a bit weird but that was ok. The garden was nice. We did not check the reviews on tripadvisor before going and that was a mistake. We... More

We were passing by and saw signs for a set lunch, €10 to €12 for a mixed starter, souvlaki or fish with a glass of wine. It wasn't advertised at the table so we had to ask for it but the waiter seemed happy to oblige. The food was good and the courtyard setting was great, hard to complain about... More

I loved the garden. It is romantic and relaxing but our waiter did not know much about what he was doing and I think there were two things we didn't enjoy at all one was that the waiter took the plates away so quickly that once he did not even asked if we were done and the other is that... More
