Quite nice place, mainly glass walls so good view of the sea. Good outside seating too. Thought the waiter's manner a little like a hustler, although the service was reasonable enough.

This restaurant has the best setting in Kato Gouves. It is built right out onto a small cliff above the water. They have great food & desserts and as expected is relatively a little more expensive than others but still well worth going there.
