The view is nice and that's it.

We were put in a separate area on the right which was quieter than the rest of the restaurant.

The food was most likely frozen, not sea-fresh as one would expect in such a location.
Nothing very original in the menu either, just the classic food you'll find in any taverna.
The cocktails were terrible, they just don't know how to make good cocktails.

The service was ok (fast and responsive), but the waiter was terrible :
In a restaurant serving seafood, it's a must to provide wet wipes or water to clean your hands afterwards, they didn't give any and were surprized we asked.
The server at some point started talking to me, he left while I was replying to him.
Last but not least, this is the only time ever, I was shown the price I had to pay on the bill, as if I was too dumb to read the bill..

It wasn't overpriced though.

Clearly a tourist trap to avoid.

We went here for dinner on a recommendation from our hotel (Antonia apartments), and it was fine.

Great caldera view, My Lamb souvlaki was very good, as was my wife's meal (blanking on details)... I do remember she got a good dessert on the house, though.

House wine was fine. Overall a good experience... just wish I hadn't been coming down with a bad cold at the time, but I can't blame them for that... ;-)
