We stay all inclusive on the Mitsis site. We decided to visit local town & have tea out ... this restaurant & Friendly staff stood out! Great choice of dishes & drinks. Could have stayed here all night enjoying the atmosphere. Theo is funny & he did a few card tricks, such a lovely guy. Highly recommend

Good food and always friendly. Family run (aren't they all?). We go back year after year. Beach sun-beds for (daytime) customers in front of the restaurant.

After a long days travelling from the UK left our hotel in search of a restaurant. Quickly spotted Captain John's with its beach side location. Very friendly staff served us with traditional Greek fare washed down with local wine. Meal was delicious. We were told that free use of sun beds on the beach for customers lunching in the restaurant.
