Following our beach wedding ceremony and private yaght trip we ended the evening with a meal here watching the sunset whilst we enjoyed beautiful fresh seafood, steak and accomplishments. The staff were friendly, accomodating and helpful. The food was flavourful and delicious. The views from...the restaurant are just fabulous. The staff even helped chase up our taxis at the end of the evening.More

We returned to this restaurant for lunch several times. Perfect spot overlooking the sea to Spinalonga, great service and food at reasonable cost. This is one of a few tavernas in the line, but was our preferred option. We will definitely return.

A fairly standard tourist spot. Plenty of seats, wind blowing during the day and a nice view of the sea. The food is quite usual to be honest, I can't say that the dishes are particularly tasty. The price is the same as everywhere else....We don't really remember the place, so I don't think we will go back there again.More

This is by far the best restaurant in Plaka. Well worth the visit from any of the hotels between Elounda and Plaka. Nikos is a fantastic host, the menu has been recently refreshed and all the food is delicious. Whether you want a selection of...Mezes, the local house speciality or fresh fish - Thalassa cannot be beaten.More

Delicious Greek food - we had for example great fried anchovies and zucchini fritters, lovely staff, great views. Better than many of its overpriced rivals

Beautiful setting. Prices a bit high for Greek tapas, as they advertise themselves. For example 7.50 for grilled halumi, very tasty, but it was served without most of the grilled vegetables listed in the menu. Also, the beetroot salad did not have any ingredients listed...in the menu except the beetroot, but thankfully the waiter told us in advance.More

Came here for some drinks after a hot visit to the Spinalonga leper-colony. Not a problem at all to sit in a cosy sofa on the sea front without ordering food.

After 50 minutes wait time, we were confronted with the worst kind of pasta ever (with sea food). Not a drop of sauce to be found! Dry to the bone! The waiter tried to calm us down, but the truth is undeniable! Service and dishes...are terrible the least we can describe!! The only good thing is the location, across the island spinaloga.More

We went there several times as we just liked the atmosphere, the service and the food so much. The view is amazing and we really liked the interior design. The food was always really good and the service was very friendly. We will be back!
