Greeted by a nice old man who started singing to the restaurants music as he showed us to our table. The menu was a photo album full of actual photos of all the meals. Lots to choose from...maybe too much, but both our meals resembled what we had seen in the photo, which was good. Were served a free shot of raki with a bowl of peanuts and plate of grapes while we decided on our meals. Mains were good, but the fresh fruit juices were syrupy and we suspect they werent 100% fresh juice. Nice view over the water and friendly waiters. Great authentic Greek family run restaurant.

We ate here one lunchtime after having been persuaded to come in by the man outside who told us he had worked in the restaurant for 45 years! You are given a massive menu full of pictures of food but we both ordered swordfish as we had already decided that was what we wanted for lunch. The wine here is free by the way. When our meals arrived they were both fish in batter, looked like coley or a similar fish. I asked the waiter if it was swordfish and he said yes, it was in batter. I had one taste and knew they had brought the wrong meals but it took a while to make them understand - they pointed to the picture in the menu of fried sole! So a bit of a communication breakdown but once they realised we actually wanted swordfish they were very apologetic, brought us more free wine and we eventually got the right meals. The food was very good and nice views.

To say this is the best restaurant in Hersonissos is laughable we had our worst food here ,we made the mistake of going in because it always looked busy.We are still baffled as to why it was, in fact the guy on the next table showed him a picture of the meal he ordered and asked why his didnt resemble what he had in front of him.Just compare it to McDonlads the Big Mac you see in the pics certainly isnt the one your getting.Save your money and eat some were else

we found this place to be very cheap for snacks and gyros, the main meals were at good prices too. The beach in front is only 2 euro`s for sun bed and umbrella and you get grapes and nuts thrown in. you can order on the beach and the staff are lovely people.
