“Best seafood I've had in along time!”
Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

The restaurant has a nice vibe with an fantastic setting, right on the beach. The staff was friendly and helpful.

We had grilled hake and prawns with salads.

The fish was well prepared and without many frills. The prawns were big and juicy. The salad did not have an disproportionate amount of lettuce leaves.

The portions were generous at a reasonable price.

Overall: this is not the place to go if you want a fancy seafood meal in a 5 star setting. However, go to Lekka by die see if you want a honest, well prepared seafood meal at a reasonable price at a fantastic, down to earth, fisherman's location.

“Will go back when they have prawns!”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

Were enticed to go by the Tripadvisor reviews. Sadly when we arrived we were told the calamari was finished then when we ordered the prawns were now finished. Was very well managed by the friendly staff. Still lovely setting and atmosphere and what we ordered was good. Will go back to try the prawn calamari combo!!!

“Great evening!”
Reviewed June 7, 2013 via mobile

We had a great evening here and the restaurant is a real relief when everywhere else is just chips and burgers and depressing tourist food.
The restaurant is not going to win any Michelin stars, but that's not what you go for. It is great fun and there were lots of young people there when we went.
We had some great mussels, calamari, prawns and a tasty pizza. The wine was good and the service friendly, informal and efficient.
Had no complaints at the end of the night and would definitely return if for any reason I was in the area again.
