Excellent service from Suzanne, who ran the place with her greek husband . Free Wi-Fi ,sunbeds and umbrella if you ate there. 3 main courses a dessert and 4 pints of tasty ice cold lager , came to €40. Made our day at the beach even better. Would definitely return.

As ever....The Dianomeas was our top restaurant again this year, excellent food and beautiful beachside setting we must have ate there 6 evenings out of our 10 night stay in Stalis. Needless to say, the charismatic front of house team George and Suzanne make it all look effortless, especially when our party of 12+ regularly rolled in together. The food... More

We ate here on one of our first nights, the idea was to try different places the first week and return to the decent ones on the second week, the food was ok but there are much better places to spend your money, the setting is good right on the beach. We would not use again if in stalis because... More

Lovely Greek food, fantastic view right on the beach. Have just spent a lovely relaxing evening enjoying the sea views whilst eating some great food. For a family of four 2 starters, 4 mains and 1 dessert + drinks cost just €47. The only downside was the mosquitos - but then that's what you expect I suppose when abroad.

I came here with my family to eat and we were very pleased. All the staff were very friendly. The restaurant looked very nice. It was immaculately clean and the food and drink were very nice. We will probably come back and use their sunbeds on the beach!

This started with the rude, arrogant man at the front of the restaurant almost dragging us in, verging on insulting us for not coming the night before. This is disgusting behaviour, and after reading some bad reviews from 2014 I am surprised he still works there (he is probably family) We decided not to enter, this brought even more abuse... More
