My wife and I had a hearty and delicious evening meal here. We ate in the bar area but there is a restaurant upstairs and on a fine day a fabulous view outside by the water.

On this road back from sheep's head this is the perfect to stop fir mussels and fries. The service is good, fast and friendly. The food was just great, mussels cooked with a garlic mariniere were just delicious. Beautiful relaxing beer garden overlooking the small harbor Ahakista. Really worth stopping.

I have a vegan daughter and the owners assured me they would have a vegan choice for her. They had a few and she was pleased. I had the seafood chowder followed by the mussels. Very nice and I certainly eat more than I really should have. Would definitely go back. Combine it with a pint at the old tin... More

Perfectly situated overlooking Ahakista harbour , we enjoyed a very pleasant evening in this good restaurant . Staff were pleasant and efficient and the food was well presented and enjoyable . We also enjoyed drinks before hand on the lawn overlooking the harbour and being able to order from there was a helpful facility .
