The fish was pure and very fresh! Lovely. The people who work there are very friendly. Afterwards you will get Raki grapes and oliebollen.

As the title already suggests, we had a great dinner here with a nice view on the sea and the beach. The service was excellent and also the house wine is something definitely worth the money. Bread, Raki and fruits for dessert were free with the meal as well.

Great place to eat fresh food with an awesome view on the bay. Prices are really low as per value you get. We enjoyed our dinner with Bob Marley music which made our dinner one of best we had in Crete. Highly Recommended.

The food is authentically Greek; it's amazing! Loved the snails. Great place for a quick lunch by the beach or a romantic dinner with views you will never forget. We did both. Thank you for amazing food with a beautiful view. :)

Sorry to leave a negative comment: price is standard for the island, Raki flows in fact as promised, the food is cheap and the service too. Nothing compared with other restaurants of the place (La Scala for instance). The view is marvellous of course.

A nice view on Matala Caves and the beach. The beer was cold enough and refreshing and we ordered a gyros on the plate with the Greek salad and it was great after our long travel on that day. We had got only positive feelings there !

Thank danaprov
