“Cannot be any better choice in Kolymbari”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 16, 2013

We discovered this restaurant last year and were really very excited as the dishes we ordered were very delicious and the service perfect. That is why we came back here during our stay this year again. Since last year they have made even a bigger progress concerning the style of meal serving and meal presentation. What we also appreciated was that they immediately after we had sat down brought a bottle of water. They continuously work on themselves if I can compare. The staff is very kind but at the same time professional. The environment in the restaurant is very romantic, especially in the evening but also during a day it is very nice there. It can be seen that the staff there love their job, it is their hobby. I do not wonder that this restaurant is always full. :-) Congratulations!!!!

“Great ambience, huge portions”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013

We enjoyed this restaurant very friendy staff, that seem to take a great pride in making you feel welcome and at the center off attention.
Food was great, somewhat large portions made the choice to go for dessert a hard one.

Absolutley recomended.

“Excellent service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013

Great experience as soon as we sat down. We had not been expecting high quality white tablecloth service in Kolymbari - so this restaurant came as a very pleasant surprise. Served some fresh baked bread, tapenade and sundries tomatoes as well as some raki while we looked through the menu. Had wonderful seafood pasta and stuffed calamari. Just wish we had been in town long enough to go back for a second meal!

“Sophisticated waterfront dining”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2013

This taverna is situated on the waterfront with glorious views and the food is even better than the views! A warm welcome is provided by your host Vassilis who speaks excellent English, the menu is large with a wide variety of dishes to suit every taste accompanied by an equally extensive wine list. Service, presentation and atmosphere are all excellent... it would be easy to pass by this taverna thinking that it must be expensive due to the sophisticated appearance but this would be a big mistake-quality does not have to be expensive and Vassilis ensures a quality experience. The fact that the taverna is full every evening throughout the season is testament to its popularity with many customers visiting frequently during their stay.Treat yourselves to a meal here during your stay in Western Crete, you won't regret it.
