As you leave Stalis going east, a bar/disco on the land side of the road but on the sea side is the most fantastic Greek restaurant with a superb, covered dining area right beside the sea. Typical Greek/Cretan food. All freshly cooked- hence the wait as some other reviewer noted but it is worth it. If you order a starter... More

This is a lovely restaurant with great views and welcoming staff. The food is reasonably priced and served the best tzatziki and pita I have ever tasted! Other dishes we had were also tasty. Food will presented too, as well as hassle free parking which was very convenient. Would recommend.

Enjoyed many nights here. The bar staff are really friendly and the DJ plays a wide range of music including northern soul. They have a Quiz three nights a week. Toilets always clean.

We ate here twice, the food was lovely and tasty on both occasions. Th pork belly and gyros well flavoured and tender, and the stifado was gorgeous. Service was good and friendly, and you're sitting right next to the sea. All very good.

Random choice along the 'strip' and so glad we went in. The seats were very nice views and the staff behaved friendly without being pushy or expectant. The food was ordered and arrived hot in good time. Very flavoursome and enjoyable, with large enough portions to fill you up. I would definitely go back.

Thank gbac
