Visited in July 2016 fantastic food, great friendly staff, free sunbeds. Staff were regularly seen buying fresh fruit and handing it to the children on the beach. Joseph the owner is a credit to the Greek people. Thank you for making us very welcome. Alan & Lyndsay

Stopped here for breakfast every day before a hard day on the beach (and a few drinks after) Lovely people always pleasant and great drinks service from the beach. Highly recommended, didn't eat here at night because it was a bit out of our way sure the food was as good as thebreakfasts.

As a family who've always gone all inclusive, we were worried about going self catering especially with a daughter with a severe nut allergy.
