Opposite the north end of the sandy beach. Good to relax at any time, but an end of evening Metaxa 7* was just what I wanted - pleasant service helped as well.

A bit expensive and no buffet/combination so you have to order everything separate to get one meal (egg, bread, butter and so on). The omelete was ok but nothing special. Very good juice and coffee, and a very good selection. The location is excellent.

Good prices and nice menu especially for childen ( chicken nuggets etc). Great omelets! The service isn't always so fast but maybe that's because they have so big area to cover.
