This is one of the worst places I've eaten in, Yes they suck you in with the menu having plenty of choice but do yourself a favour and grab a 2:50 euro souvlaki wrap, it's 5 star!! Don't worry about the view you can views everywhere, We ordered a variety of meals as we were a large group and every... More

Great views etc, reasonable service and the food was not as bad as some suggest. Definitely overpriced by comparison to those restaurants back from the cliffside and reliant on quantity rather than quality. Also it would be nice if everything didn't come with chips. I

This restaurant has a great view and the service was decent however that's where it ends - the food was incredibly overpriced and really not very good. A good location for watching the sunset or enjoying the view with a drink but even then expect to pay too much.

Our waiter looked shocked when we told him we'd returned for the Spaghetti Bolognese that we enjoyed five years ago. It is really good at this restaurant! The views are incredible and the atmosphere nice and relaxed. The service was quite slow the afternoon that we dined, other than that, wonderful experience.

I don't know where to begin. BE WARNED: don't get taken in by the views!! As for the meals for 4 persons $140 euro later and non of us could eat anything. We left in disgust. Faulty towers service and you couldn't call the food food!. Just to give you an idea, Greek salad was a bed of lettuce with... More

They have to do something very fast for this restaurant. Maybe to think again to change it..... When they change it we go there, the restaurant was empty And we wait... More

The service at this restaurant far outweighs any service I found in Greece. They were courteous, efficient, and went above and beyond to make the experience enjoyable. Although I only had dessert there, I could have stayed much longer. The music and stunning views made this a very enjoyable place.

Fantastic views and that's it. Ordered food, an hour later only half of it had arrived, it was awful. Waiter lied about whereabouts of the rest of our meals. We complained and left without paying...horrendous! Would give less than 1 if possible.

Went there for lunch with family. The view from the outside terrace is stunning, in that respect it does exactly what it says on the tin. However - my meal was the rough end of a rump steak, black and sour but placed good side up on the plate to make it look good. I took one mouthful and nearly... More
