Well worth the walk round from the Venetian harbour to experience this delightful sea view restaurant. The location is very scenic and tranquil overlooking the coast. It was easy to get a table closest to the sea and soak in the atmosphere while eating and drinking at a leisurely pace.

The food was really delightful and representing great value for such a location. The chicken souvlaki was so tender and well cooked, while the accompanying salad had a secret chefs salad dressing recipe to die for.

We are here for another week and definitely intend to return.

We went to this restaurant as it seemed to be the only one that did not have touts to pull you in. This town seemed to exist to fleece tourists! Food was good and reasonably priced, but they charged far too much for waters and coffees. The terrace overlooks the sea and
was very pleasant.

Not many places are so romantic as this one! We enjoyed delicious traditional Greek food with a background that was breathtaking. We enjoyed a beautiful sunset overlooking the sea. Our waiter Clement was also a service minded and talented person as he spoke 5 languages and in addition to his knowledge about the food.

We visited this restaurant on recommendation of friends and were pleasantly surprised by the wide choice of dishes available, plus the excellent service. We knew the view was amazing as had visited other restaurants along this road before.

We chose 10 dishes between the 5 of us from fried courgettes, to chicken in wine to Cretan salad. All were tasty and we enjoyed the relaxed manner in which they arrived as and when the dishes were cooked in the kitchen across the road.

It was a lovely, relaxing evening with a decent bottle of wine and lovely views of the sea. The service was also very friendly and the waiter was keen to chat and explain details about the food.

We truly spent a lovely evening and chose to go back for lunch on our leaving day also.
