We ate here twice and enjoyed both meals. There is a good selection of traditional Greek items, and the meatballs and zucchini balls are just as good as everyone says. The second time we went their power was out, but they were still able to whip up some delicious omelets! Nicole is welcoming and friendly - her perfect English will put you right at ease. Stavros beach and the mountain across from it provide a delightful view. Go and have a great meal!

If your hungry and looking to sit down to a beautiful view and have your food within minutes, look no further :) not to mention that Nicole and her staff are probably the friendliest people on the island. And did I mention incredible food and beer?? Ive lived here since February and I probably eat here at least 4 times a week, very highly recommended!!

We ate here, a party of 6, and were hugely disappointed with the experience. The food was fried in oil that left an after taste, the meat dishes (meatballs, burgers) had little or no seasoning and the service was average to say the least.

Whilst all the reviews suggest that this is a traditional cretan taverna it is far from it. There is no fresh fish on the menu, the meat options are very "british" i.e. burgers, chicken nuggets, pizzas and i saw no sign of authenticity in this place.

If you are looking for a greek experience i would avoid this place at all costs!!!!!
