Perfect meal overlooking the bay and harbour. Staff were extremely friendly and attentive. The fish was like a cross between snapper and dorado.... Very fresh. Also had the seafood risotto. Good value for money.

Excellent site next to sea - we sat indoors away from wind and some smokers. Good menu, well priced starters and mains. Wines local and sensibly priced. Attentive service. Beware the on the house sweets and 'raki' leave room for them!

Had amazing dinner for the end of our tour in Crete, the food was absolutely delicious We had stuffed vine leaf which was the best we had during our 4 days vacation, the fish and mussels was incredible. All in all we enjoyed very much.
