What a great place . Beautiful view while your eating . The service was great and the atmosphere was child friendly because the beach is out the front . The moussaka was the best I have ever tasted . Would highly recommend .

We ate here four times, the fish n chips is the best and beats uk fish n chip shops. The restaurant is not right on the beach but very close with sea very close. All our meals were very good, prices good and staff very nice.

When down at the beach and after an easy snack we went to Rainbow for their fantastic gyros. The owner is very friendly and when I told her how good the gyros were she took me to the kitchen and showed me the fresh chicken they use to make them. You do have to wait 20 minutes or so, but... More

We have been here several times before, but this was a disappointing visit. My steak was overdone, the chips were from frozen, and my dry wine was sweet and the worst wine I've ever tasted ( and I'm not fussy). I think there has been a definite decline in both the service and the food which is a shame, because... More

We chose this place as the food was slightly less formulaic than all the others on the front. We had a huge dish of hummus between us, then sardines and lamb in lemon sauce, both of which were very well cooked and tasty. Disappointingly there were only eight of us in a large restaurant which lacked atmosphere, but the food... More

We have visited this restaurant many times over the years. There is always a warm friendly welcome here and a lovely view of the island. We had steak which was requested to be medium and arrived as well done and lamb kleftiko which was tasty but not quite as cheesy as I've had in other places.
