We had our wedding meal here this summer, there were just 4 of us but Nikos made it as special as if we were a wedding party of 100. Our meal was beautiful, tasty, well cooked and well presented, plus we just loved the mezze starter. Nikos the elder and Nikos the younger were wonderful hosts, making sure we had... More

Great place for lunch. The setting absolutely beautiful - large terrace overlooking the sea with views to Spinalonga. Service was so friendly and food was excellent.

Had dinner here - honestly food wasn't too bad, but we had a better meal and almost half the price at George's a few doors down. Fish was slightly over cooked, nothing was really seasoned and the lemon juice was a horrific fluoro yellow that didn't taste like lemon at all. Not bad but too pricey for what we got.

We had starters Greek style, very good. Then we asked if we should eat a main course but it was all too much. We ordered dorado but 60€ only for a fish for two is really too much. Friendly staff but honestly we felt ripped-off

We left our hotel for a lunch and dinner at Thalassa and are so happy we did. Both meals were perfect. The setting is beautiful. The sea and simple, colorful furniture are all you need. Nothing fancy. Nikos and the staff are welcoming without the pushiness of the restaurants in the village. We enjoyed wonderful eggplant salad, crispy calamari, grilled... More

In October this is a better place for lunch than dinner, simply because of the fantastic view over the island of Spinalonga, on a beautiful terrace with very comfortable seats. The food was great, with very fresh fish. Sorry they did not have the sea urchin on that day.

We had lunch here after our visit at Spinalonga. Other restaurants pushed to show us the menu, but at Thalassa we could look at the menu in peace. When we decided to enter, we had a warm welcome. The service was very helpful and the food where excellent! Highly recommended.
