When i visited the place with friends, at first i was enthralled with the view. A bit later i realized that the whole place was atmospheric because of the great decoration. Coffee, food, desserts, music and service ....it was all perfect! !!

Super food and lively atmosphere. Very romantic at night. We were treated like true celebrities. Not many tourists and don't expect that folklorish music. Instead: young and beautiful crowd with an upbeat soundtrack. What a treat.

We enjoyed some drinks with a very nice view over the aegean sea. Prices are cheap-medium, but you get free water, WiFi and snacks (chips). Close to the street, but still quiet.

Like in almost every restaurant you get a water when you arrive in the restaurant. The food was really good but on "the grill platter for 2" way to much potatoes compared to the amount of meat. A lot of typical cretan and greet dishes....More
