“Wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

After a long walk along the beach we stopped for lunch at this great seafood restaurant. The tables outdoors overlook the Nea Chora beach and beyond. We followed a recommendation of a local resident and were not disappointed. In addition to superb seafood dishes described in other reviews, the vegetarian dishes are delicious. The Greek salad of course,as well as the courgette balls were outstanding. No matter what you order it is followed by complimentary dessert and raki, a true sign of Cretan hospitality. The price is very reasonable.

“Very good seafood and fish”

Atmosphere-wise, a very simple place, but the food was delicious and good value. Portions are huge. Based on our visit, the place is very popular with locals.

“Pretty good!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2014 via mobile

We ordered the Greek salad which you can never go wrong with. For the main course we had the mixed sea food platter for 25 euro. It came with grilled octopus, squid, shrimp, cuddle fish (My favorite- they were fried and the batter was delicious!), anchovies and some other fried small fish which I'm unsure what they were. It was all fresh of course. Also with French fries, tomatoes and cucumber. Very good! They gave a little dessert at the end which was some some sort of cinnamon pastry that reminded me of baklava but tasted nothing like it. It was my favorite bite of the whole meal... And of course they finished with a generous shot of raki. Would recommend!
