Only reason I gave it 4 was because it was a little pricey compared to other restaurants in island, but the fish was top notch. Fresh as it gets! Fish soup was amazing too! Very friendly staff and good service.

Great view from the terrace, nicely done restaurant, slow service, average typical Greek restaurant, good fish choices, slightly over-rated pricing.Overall a nice experience, no need for speed here, but a little more attentiveness would turn the average to the wonderful.
