“Really enjoyed this restaurant”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

As the title suggests, I really did enjoy this restaurant - several times during my two week trips to Malia in both September 2012 and September 2013.

Extensive menu, but not too spoilt for choice. Staff seemed friendly, food was good quality, the place looked spotlessly clean, and it was great value for money.

Conveniently located directly opposite my favourite bar in Malia (Reflex - look for the giant illuminated Rubik's cube), this restaurant about 6 or 7 mins walk down the strip, not from the beach end, from the other end.

Prices good, no complaints here. It looks the part with its all American diner appearance, and the decor is nice and fresh. I particularly enjoyed the fact that you can sit outdoors if you wish, and enjoy the music from the strip and do as much people watching as you'd like, a very entertaining thing to do on Malia strip, lol.

I'd recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys the American diner style dining experience, and I am looking forward to going back there this summer.

“Mouth watering.”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

After a long week of drinking heavily and eating super noodles, we chose to have our last meal in what looks like the only sit down restuarant in Malia.

Extensive menu, reasonably prices, excellent service and above all gigantic portions!

Definitely a good way to end your holiday!

It took hours for us to be served, I found the staff to be rude and unaccommodating.. Disappointing food, low quality and not many vegetarian options

Absolutely loved it. It was bang smack in the centre of the strip and so was local to a lot of hotels. This meant that it was often busy but the food is worth the wait. It's a fairly varied American menu with A LOT of barbeque on it so my advice- if you don't like barbeque it's not for you. It was one of the more expensive food places in Malia and is in close competition with The Red Lion for the best restaurant in Malia. You get huge portions so it's definitely good value for money.
