I think there is some confusion here? The restaurant is actually Waves on the Rock(s). I will put my review on Tripadvisor there. Also not sure why you would give it a poor review because a bad bus service meant that you never got there?

A freindly family run Taverna , set back from the quiet charming beach at Ravdoucha. We visited twice both times on Sunday. A popular spot with Greek families, the sea food is fresh and the portions generous.

Lovely family run taverna on a small pebbly beach. Worth the drive down for the food, even tho we only had a short visit to the beach - it's stony and small. Some of the dishes we tried were excellent, real home cooking, and staff...More
