Beside one of the best beaches in the area, great lunchtime spot. Very busy on a Sunday. Delicious grilled sea bream. Good value. No charge for the sunbeds on the beach. Would definitely return.

The place is nice and it's ok to get a beer at Galinis beach bar. However, the "Kretan Salad" was just terrible, and the small/mid size fish were too smelly to be really fresh.
