We ate here and were surprised at the portions, the food was huge. However the food was delicious and we enjoyed (even if we left a fair bit). We ordered a starter each and a main each, this was probably too much and would recommend sharing a starter.

The service, like everywhere we visited, was excellent. The meal came with a complementary desert and fruit along with some Raki which was a pleasant surprise.

The only issue with this restaurant was the proximity to the road. The ocean side of the outdoor seating area had a cover (reducing the offshore breeze) but the road side of the restaurant has a busy road which meant there was a lot of noise / pollution.

We had lunch here after seeing how busy it was the day before. We certainly were not disappointed. The seafood pasta and risotto were great. House wine on the carafe say decent. Great view. Complimentary Ouso, fruit and greek desert. I wish I stayed more locally.

My son has a horrid obsession with small, salty fish. The deft combination of greasy with disturbingly bony is lost me however and I can't stand them. Lucky for him then that there is a very generous and allegedly delicious anchovy appetizer at Paralia. He had all of that, to himself. And then lunch. We had a magnificent time. The staff was very warm and friendly. I looked out at their amazing view of the harbor and sea and wondered over genetics.
