Returned to this restaurant after previous visits last year. Staff remembered us and we were looked after extremely well. What stands out for us is great views of Spinalonga and the spaghetti lobster - delicious. Well worth a visit.

Had dinner here after stumbling upon this place during a walk. It was a mistake. Below average food. Hidden fees added to the bill. When I asked the waiter about it, he said it was a "service charge".... After vacationing in Crete for years, this...More
