This is a very firm favourite of mine and my family and friends. This is primarily a fish restaurant and of course caught fresh daily. You can also choose the fish you eat. There is also a full menu of other good dishes not only the fish. It is right on the beach so you can swim in the sea or in the natural pool. The owners are very welcoming and you couldn't ask for a better location.

What a hidden gem. We found this restaurant mentioned in the book at the villa we were staying. We had the freshest fish and fabulous sardines. Excellent friendly service and the beach and lagoon in front is a great snorkelling spot. Breathtaking views on the road down.

I've been there with my girlfriend during our staying in Ravdoucha. After the first try, we have been captured by the simplicity, freshness, goodness of the food served in this restaurant just few steps from the beach. We tried, tzaziki, greek and mix salad, cheeses, moussaka, boureki, chicken souvlaki, burger, mix fish plates. Everything was absolutely tasty, with true local products used. The location it's fantastic too, you can enjoy cretan food and the fresh sea air under the trees. Friendly and good service will delight you with on the house desserts, as yogurt with sweet pumpkin, or fresh watermelon. Relaxed, chilled atmosphere with the owner around will make you feel like sitting at your home table. Will miss a lot this place!

O m goodness this combination of pumpkin and yoghurt was exquisite. I asked for yoghurt and honey and he recommended pumpkin. I've never tasted anything like it, no wonder the owner ears it every day. They allow the pumpkin to air for 24 hours then boil it with sugar in its own juice until the liquid is sticky, there is also a hint of ginger - delicious and a beautiful setting to eat it in thank you

Superb setting for some very good food after a swim off the rocks.

Guy serving very warm and friendly.

Not an easy place to find but well worth the drive!
