“There need to be a 6 star for this restaurant above excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2013 via mobile

We've been at this restaurant at the last day before she closed (26-October-2013) for the winter, even though the food and hospitality were above expectation, we enjoyed every second we were there. 100% A place to remember and coming back. Highly recommended !

“Thanks for the drinks and hospitality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

During our recent trip to Chersonissos and after an evening of shopping we decided to have drinks in the Votsalo. We sat on the roof and were immediately catered to and utterly spoiled by the amazingly nice owner (I think he was). The drinks were great, the conversation flowed and we made a new friend. The restaurant itself is beautiful and truly romantic. Definitely recommended.

“A fabulous authentic contemporary greek experince”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2013

Although this restaurant is of a contemporary appearance the food and service is truly traditional greek and of a superb standard. The food served here was so good (we did try other restaurants)
we returned for more. We first got to hear of the restaurant from a greek bar owner who suggested a few restaurants we should try and the Votsalo was the first he suggested. The service was great, house wine fab and the food second to none. Put this restaurant on your list of places to visit. You will not be disappointed. Great value for money.

“A Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2013

Food to die for and a super roof top setting. Stumbled on it by accident up a side street off the main beach road.

A shame it was our last night in Crete or we most certainly would have returned.

Try it, you will not be disappointed.

“Wonderful Experience, from food to service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2013

We had a two week holiday here in June, this restaurant was recommended as my family had found it when they visited earlier in the year. What a find - the decor is just perfect, relaxing, with a wonderful view of the mountains and only a very short stroll to the sea.

The service again cannot be faulted, we were treated almost like family but so professional throughout, everything is noticed by the on hand owner and acted on in a subtle manner (great way to teach your staff).

THE FOOD - simply delicious, we ate here numerous times during our stay. We mixed and tried many different things on the menu, tasted each others food (has to be done!) and all agreed that we couldn't decide what was best, it was all so good. The steaks were perfectly cooked to order, the traditional dishes were soooo tasty, everything was presented looking fantastic and very large portions !

Dessert - although you know you shouldn't because you have either not been able to finish all the food on your plate or know you just have eaten far too much, it's hard to not go there, so wait a while (they're happy for you to do this for as long as you like), then, try - my recommendations would be the apple sponge cake or the cheesecake, like no others i have tasted anywhere.

This restaurant is special, it is unique and treats its customers uniquely - any different food/drink requirements they can possibly do they will find a way if that's what you like. They try very hard and it shows.
