We found this place after spending a day at Balos Lagoon. Waiter was patient, helpful and very accommodating. Food was great, views great, complimentary fruit and raki were superb.

What topped it off was the waiter providing us with a volleyball to play on their beach front. They then brought out water and joined our game! We had the most fun and laughs we had on our entire trip.

We dined here for our last dinner in Crete. Convenient location across the street from the beach and just down the street from our apartment. We were the only patrons in the restaurant and received attentive, personable service. The menu selection was limited due to the time of year, but what we ordered was delicious! My beef with tomato in the oven served with potatoes was wonderful. The portions were very generous and the prices very reasonable. Would definitely return and highly recommend Ippokampos for an excellent meal!

We visited at the end of season and enjoyed great food and great service. John was a delight and provided us with a variety of food to suit our odd tastes. He was engaging and attentive and the food was lovely. The tavern has a beautiful spot and we enjoyed watching the waves crash and the sky over the bay turn every shade of blue, black and pink as the sun set. Gorgeous, relaxed place and great value for money - definitely a 'visit again'

We had the pleasure to visit this restaurant twice in the same day. Seafood and beef were delicious. Big portions with low price. I hope more people will find this place as it is located aside and we found it in last days of our stay.

Went here for a night out to enjoy a beachside meal and was not disappointed! The fish was fresh and there was a good selection of mains and starters/sides. The place has a nice vibe to it which goes well with the beachfront seating. Highly recommend visiting if you're nearby. Friendly and prompt service also
