We went to this restaurant about 2pm, ordered our meal. We chose simple food, but it took more than an hour to get our meal. We were very hungry. Finally the food arrived, which was ok, but nothing extraordinary. I would not recommend this place.

Birthday meal tonight, and a fabulous meal. Could not fault anything. Service just right, time to relax between courses, every different member if our group of 6 delighted with their meals. Complimentary raki and mixed fresh fruit. Bill reasonable considering what we ate. Deinately would recommend.

We visited for dinner, while staying at a nearby hotel. Happy to bring kids dinners first and attentive throughout the meal. We liked it so much we went back for lunch a couple of days later. Great views over the bay.

This taverna was reccomended to us, and proved to be the best advice in a long time. One of the best seafood diinners we we experienced in a very long time. All dishes -- mussells, calamari, fresh fish and pranws with pasta -- were perfectly prepared. A Real treat, especiallyt since our hotel, The Blue Bay Resort was a disaster.

The food is excellent with a great variety of international dishes as well as classic Cretan and Greek food. The snails in garlic were... More

A taverna that is really worth a visit. Run by Carla and Her Father Costa who make you feel so very welcome. They serve excellent food at very good prices. The wine, red or white, is lovely but watch out for the Raki..! Makes you snore..!! x

Really enjoyed this restaurant. Really friendly staff and great food. My partner was particularly impressed with their massive plates of courgette fries. The fish I had on a couple of occasions was fresh and good, although the mixed fish dish had a little too much fried fish for me (would have preferred more grilled or roast fish!)
