We had met friends at Santa Barbara for lunch as we had raved about it for its stunning views and helpful staff. However, my friend was very ill after eating a Chicken Caesar Salad and spent the afternoon and evening in her bathroom. I had moussaka, usually very good, not so on the day we went. My moussaka was dry... More

This is I think an English run restaurant with a beach bar on the opposite side of the road. The views from there are stunning and the people are very friendly. On the day we visited it seemed to be a mainly well-off English clientele which as a Brit-abroad I was proud to see and identify with. The prices were... More

Our restaurant has both Greek and English influences, since we are a Greek and English couple, with family from both sides making up our staff, both front of house and in the kitchen.

My super wife and i visited this restaurant 3 times while holidaying nearby. Twice for Breakfast and once for evening meal. The full English Breakfast was really good, everything cooked to perfection. The evening meal was also delicious. We were quite late arriving and it was very busy but service was still good. It was early in the season, so... More

Actually my wife had the squid which was nice. The food is not really authentic, but it is ok for travellers. The seating is right on the beach so my tip would be go when you don't feel like Greek food or go for drinks and nibbles to see the sun set.

This is the place to experience local atmosphere enjoying local food with the very best of friendly service. A mixture of local residents and tourists clearly spend many hours here regularly. The location is excellent with the bar going down almost to the waters edge and with the restaurant just the other side of the road. The sunsets are magnificent!... More
