For dinner or lunch this restaurant has fabulous food, very very surprised if anyone did not like everything about it. The best for me is the Meze as I enjoy this rather than a main meal.

Had lunch here after our trip to Spinalonga Island. Lovely bayside/dockside view. Great service. We had the sampler platter with included about 15 items served family style. Great selection of Greek specialties enough to feed 4 people for about 50 dollars.

Really good local food. The rabbit stew was excellent, as was the grilled sole. The staff were attentive and friendly. Didn't seem to be too popular, but you should go to enjoy the excellent food

We only stopped here for a quick lunch, but enjoyed a really flavoursome leek and potato soup. The restaurant is a lunch stop for coach trips, but they are hosted in a separate part of the restaurant and does not impede on service at all....More
