We just happened to find this lovely little taverna purely by chance. We had been walking around in the heat and felt it was time to find somewhere outside but under some shade for a drink.

The title says it all really. The menu had all your standard meals but there were added touches which showed care and attention. Lovely outside seating area with vines and birds. Would highly recommend.

That s what they said at Seafront Rooms and the we're right. I had the rabbit and was seasoned perfect and my wife had a salad. Good size portions. The top off the meal with a cheese pastry and zone raki. Awesome.

Maybe it is hard to find if you haven't heard for this place. But it is very lovely place, away from the noise. In restaurant there are birds singing. It's very relaxing. The food is delicious!
