We ate here in August 2020 and it was lovely. Good food and an attentive waiter who adapted the order with various recommendations when we requested. Very good value for money too as the wine was very cheap and the food inexpensive also.

The only good thing about the COVID pandemic is that hundreds of people have been saved from eating the poor quality food from this establishment. A recommendation to all those reviewers who have left average or higher ratings..... go get your head checked.

We have dined here on several occasions. The staff are very pleasant, welcoming and helpful, offering a comprehensive menu and wine list to satisfy most international and local tastes. The restaurant is located in a narrow side street very close to but off the main...thoroughfare - with the main shopping street to one side and the sea front and wall to wall bars etc to the other side. Altogether a very peaceful and relaxed experience despite being in the town centre. Ample parking nearby and the patron very happy to arrange taxi service if required. Frequented by local groups and families in addition to tourists.More

We have eaten here a number of times in the past and have never been disappointed. But over the last couple of years they have really upped their game. The restaurant itself is hidden just off the high street down a narrow road and you...could easily miss it. It is outside dining under vine leaves with the odd tree for a lovely ombiaunci. The staff are extremely friendly and inviting and depending where you sit you may be able to watch the chefs work their magic. We had the meze at €25 and a carafe of red medium wine which was lovely along with every mouthful of food. There was an excellent selection of meats, dolmades, a variety Greek dips, a hard cheese, feta, garlic bread and olives. Next course was a mousaka and kleftico the mousaka was dreamy light and both were really flavoursome and if you needed more after that there was grapes and watermelon! We couldn’t eat all ours but every mouthful was delicious. We thoroughly recommend this is a place you should try and maybe like us you will return again and again. The restaurant is not open all year so check be turning up.More

Went for for our last night as we’d previously been earlier on our stay,what a way to finish! The Vesuvius steak was unreal and cooked to perfection,I could see into the kitchen from where we were sat and witnessed how fresh everything was.

First time but not the last! Everything we eat was so delicious. Fresh vegetables, fruits, meat and great desserts. I've you're in this city you'll have to try this restaurant!

We’ve been here as it was recommended from our travel agent in Crete and we soon realised that it was a really good advice. The food was great and we felt at home from the environment to the treatment of the staff. There is a...very large range for food, it is mostly Mediterranean cuisine with Greek traditional plates, meat and fish grilled and there are different deals to choose from. Very good value for money! I have to come back before leaving Crete.More

Great service and nice to have a meal in a garden setting just off the main coastal strip! First place during our week in Crete we were offered fresh chillies straight from their herb garden - enjoyed the spiciness. Even taking a couple home to...try and grow them.More
