Right beside the beach. Run by Costa and his family. Very relaxing to sit, drink and watch the sun go down. Also typical fresh Greek dishes to eat. Good service and atmosphere.

While visiting Petra for the day we stopped in to have lunch. We both had gyros with fries and Greek village salad. The server was very friendly, the food was served quickly and the views amazing.
