We enjoyed a a lovely lunch here with good views of Spinalonga. Very good service and freshly cooked fish. The grilled sardines and pitta bread were excellent. Good orange cake as a complimentary dessert as well.

We went here for lunch and we chose this simply because it was the first restaurant we came to after coming back from Spinalonga, not because of the pushy salesman-like person shoving their menu in our faces. we decided to go for it as we only had 1.5 hours before our tour car was leaving. as soon as the sales...

Ate here one night after visiting other local restaurants in Plaka. Food was okay - basic and a bit cold. But the service was inattentive and grumpy - felt like we were intruding on an evening the staff wanted to spend with the locals.

The speciality is fish and it all looks very good. We just stopped by for a light lunch and a beer and all was satisfactory, the... More

Me and my friends had a dinner in there and I can say it was worst experience ever. Salads are average, octopus terrible, small, hard and poor taste. Staff very rude they don't know how serve people. Strongly not recommend.

Lovely view enticed us in as we got off the boat from Spinalonga - sadly we left feeling we'd made a big mistake. Taramasalata didn't resemble any we'd eaten before - a lump of cold boiled potato found in it. Female waitress had lost our bill and even when we explained exactly what we had had, no glimmer of a...
