This rooftop restaurant has plexiglass all around, with spectacular views of the harbor and sea. UnIike many restaurants with great views, it also has great food, a creative, high-cuisine take on traditional Greek food. We enjoyed, and thoroughly recommend it.

Our first visit to Greece with our son starting in Crete, and what a great dining experience. Very good wine recommended by our hostess, even better food, and outstanding service. Breeze kept us cool while not blowing our drawers off! A most excellent experience.

Here's the finest "balcony" in the city embraced by the soft breeze of the Cretan Sea, offering the most beautiful panoramic views of the old city harbor and the Venetian fortress you'll ever see. The inspired menu primes your palate for fresh fish and seafood cooked to perfection, tender meats, refreshing vegetables and season salads, fine appetizers accompanied by ouzo or raki, and a variety of fine wines.
