There is a VIEW indeed. Lovely setting, service good, very attentive, and the prices , though not cheap, but not over the top.

But, those annoying wasps They were everywhere, we moved tables twice, they even put some coffee powder to smolder on our table, much to the annoyance of other customers! But to no avail. We did notice the odd one or two wasps around the island, but it is so green, its not surprising................But this was ridiculous. At one point there was 10 maybe twelve, hovering over the food.

The evening kinda lost its shine, so we payed up and left, no apologies or sympathy.

You've been warned!!

Dear Guest,
Thank you for sharing your review.
We are truly sorry for the wasps spoiling your evening, as you saw we tried in the most natural way to dispose of them but they were quite adamant that evening. This year we will try our best to find a solution to this problem. Once again, please accept our apologies.
Kindest regards from all of us at The View!

As the name suggests, there is a good view of the sea from the lovely terrace of this restaurant. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. The food was very good and in very generous quantities. The atmosphere was very calm and relaxed and made for a wonderful dining experience. The steps up are a bit daunting but that is why you get the view.

Thank Christine Susan J

Friends of my partner had recommended this restaurant as they had eaten before,
We had just eaten dinner at our hotel, therefore decided to just have a drink to check out the atmosphere.
We were welcomed in by an Indian lady brought in from London who is married to one of the greek owners. She had a small party at this time, four adults on one table and four of their kids on another.so not very busy.
We had been there for about 45 minutes, on our second drinks and the waitress asked me about my pipe. I informed her it wasn't very strong and would she like to try it. She was seen by the owner and given some severe dressing down and possibly given the sack. We were given the bill.

It's not the sort of attitude I would expect anywhere in the world, being upset that staff are conversing with customers must be a hanging offence here. It was the only place we visited all over Greece where we felt uncomfortable while on the island and have never been so embarrassed for the waitress and ourselves.
We went with the intention of going for an evening meal, but management stuffy and stinky behavior didn't fill us with desire to return. If Greece gets in so much of a mess, it will not be helped by people like you. You should be ashamed and disgusted with yourselves. Just as you made three people feel

Ate here twice in our 1 week stay. Great view, very friendly and helpful staff. Monica assisted us with the menu as we were clearly ordering far too much food than we could possibly eat!. The food was great and we were very well looked after. Highly recommended.
