Food was nice, but staff was not very attentive, especially the young men. Location was nice and the restaurant looks very picturesque.

Reasonable food at reasonable prices. Friendly staff. Nobody at entrance trying to persuade you to go in. A bonus

It took 11/2 hours for food to arrive, very small portions. Service was terrible, no communication between staff.

Few tourists will find this place as majority head to Malia for the 'party' life. Set back in the Old Town this was a great little find. Amazing food, friendly staff and beautiful setting and backdrop. Can recommended the baked Feta. probably the best we had all holiday. Dakos bread also. In fact everything was amazing.

So the athmosphere is amazing here, the setting very romantic. My husband and I were there tonight for our anniversary. We made a reservation and everything was perfect. We had the meze for two, which has a few traditional greek foods combined ( tzatziki, fetta from the oven, mousaka, meatballs, fried zuchinni with cheese, etc.) (27euros) and a gyros plate,... More
