My daughter and I spent one week in Playa Samara and had dinner her three times! The food was very good and the people who work there were very friendly and welcoming. There is a fun upbeat atmosphere as well. Definitely recommend checking it out.

We really looked forward to lunch at this restaurant since dining options were limited at the hotel we were staying at. The restaurant is clean. The problem is none of the dishes were as advertised. The salad my wife chose did not contain any corn...More

Very good restaurant with fair prices. They only accept cash though so be aware. The restaurant is only a little bit off the beach; nice and quiet. The menu is vegetarian and has a lot of very good options. Enjoyed our two visits here.

The food here is great! I call it hidden because I think sometimes people don't try it because of the vegetarian menu. I can assure you that even the biggest carnivore will find the fresh homemade menu to die for.
