I booked into the Village Panorama hotel, which wasn't bad for what u pay, but found myself eating on the beach front at lunch time, as the hotel was too much of an effort to get to in the heat. I chose Zorba's on the beach front for my first lunch, and found myself returning day after day. The owner, Matheus, was friendly and a really lovely man. In fact all the staff were amazing, and the food was exceptional. The ambience of the restuarant completed my Crete experience. I shall most definately return.
