The food is excellent and the staff are kind and polite. The breakfast is simple and ok but maybe a little variety would be nice. Finishing the evening on one of the couches with a drink/coffee watching the waves is so relaxing and peaceful

A modern yet traditional taverna. Great food right on the beach with very comfy sunbeds and day beds. The guys who own this and serve here really offer great Greek hospitality. Fabulous fish platters with the best octopus I've ever had. The cheesecake is out of this world and enough to get me back to Male me. Thanks to Tom... More

Had a very enjoyable lunch with beach and sea view, good food & service. Part of a hotel but welcoming to anyone coming off the beach too as it has direct access.

Good restaurant food not amazing but good Service was ok felt a little rushed through courses but this could be the way things are done in Crete - first time visiting the island so not sure if this is how things are done. Desserts were fab.
