“Overpriced Tourist Trap”
Reviewed June 28, 2014

One of the best locations for a sunset dinner on the ocean will tempt you as you stroll through. Fresh fish & greek food does not cost like a fine dinning gourmet restaurant but it just did.

“Never again.”
Reviewed June 28, 2014

Having spotted the place and met the friendly staff during the day, we decided to eat there that evening. Although the restaurant sits on the bay looking back at the old town I didn't expect such high prices compared to other restaurants in town. €37.50 for a small fish with little meat and comes with nothing. The fish tavern is far better value and better atmosphere.... Poor quality cold food .....

“Pretty poor, really. ”
Reviewed June 21, 2014 via mobile

Short-changed on beer (didn't fill glass properly), then didn't top up as he said he would...
Short changed on prawns on spaghetti - 6 prawns for €38? Please.

Best avoided. Keep walking through, it's my opinion but I reckon these guys are coasting on their location (you walk through their area en route to Mykonos town from the free car parking).

“Delightful family restaurant”
Reviewed June 20, 2014

We ate here three times during our stay - more to do with the delightul staff than anything else, although the fish/seafood dishes were good too. It is a family run restaurant with very attentive and charming staff who made us feel very welcome each time.

It is right on the water which with lovely views of the harbour. Yes, it is touristy, but with friendly, personal service, it puts it above some of the other, more pushy, places further along the sea front.

“Excellent location for a fish platter for 2 but a little overpriced”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

This was our first meal in Mykonos and by far the most expensive one. On the question of how much would a fish platter for 2 cost answers alike "don't worry.... or why do you care as if you are paying..." were the most irritating of our overall experience there.
On the other hand the fish and seafood were delicious and the staff was quite friendly.
And yet about 120euro is a way too much for 2 beers and a fish platter....
The view and the whole setting of the restaurant is just fantastic and really attractive place to be.
