We visited this bar, restaurant on numerous occasions during our 10 day stay, its position is on the road linking Stalis and Malia, about 400 meters from the centre of Stalis walking in from the Malia end. It is on the beach and the rear of the restaurant has three beautiful verandas which descend down onto the beach itself. Each... More

Well we came to the north of Crete for the first time, I am so glad as this was just a perfect place to holiday. But, what made this holiday was coming to the Ankatoro Restaurant, we ate here sometimes twice a day, the setting is right on the beach, it's great during the day and really romantic at night,...

Cocktails are the norm at Ankatora and it is a delightful place to enjoy them, sitting up above the beach with a stunning outlook. Initially disappointed that there was no food we were introduced to their - equally delightful - adjoining sister restaurant Africa. AND we can only echo previous Tripadvisor comment in regard to the quality of the food... More

We visited Crete in March before the season had started, and struggled to find any beach locations serving lunch or drinks. This place is great, walk through the front entrance and you walk outside onto several decked layers, bringing you straight out onto a beautiful beach. The owner made time to speak with us and explained that she lived in... More
