Probably this town is too touristic to find a real good restaurant. Not that it was bad, but the food was average, not that tasty, and the price not that cheap. The location balance a little bit, but yet not at the level of other...More

We stay near the restaurant and the people here suggested us to visit it. The waiters are both honest about what is fresh and make some suggestions too. We found sea urchins salad (which is not always easy to find) and fresh mussels. The mussels...More

Good classics of Crete cuisine and the plus is the fish and such a view! As well we went twice and it wasn’t crowded at all even in August! Breeze, have a rest and enjoy simple, tasty and genuine cuisine.

We chose this restaurant because the fish looked fresh and because they had the plastic blinds down to protect customers from the strong onshore wind. With the waiter's guidance my wife ordered grilled local fish. I ordered a salad. My wife also ordered a glass...More

We've dined here three nights in a row. Being familiar with fish and seafood (being from Portugal), we discussed in detail with the Albanian (not Romanian!) waiter the different options. He was very competent, open and explained fish qualities, freshness and prices. Our expectations were...More
