We visited YOLO at the very start of the season and despite being the only ones in there - we had a great night! Drinks were reasonably priced, staff were very friendly and one of my friends is still recovering from the Killer Sambuca shot! Great place to start your evening!

Great place, good service. Not to big, not to small. You should go there if you have the change. Close to the "barstreet"!

Visiting Crete every now and then, I find YOLO to be one of the most freshening and welcoming bars on the island. Prices are fair, and Astrid, the owner, makes everyone feel at home. If you're in town you should really give it a try.

We stumbled across this bar after following a recommendation from someone we met on the beach. Astrid, who runs the bar was welcoming and had good banter with her customers, we enjoyed the few nights we spent here and it livened up our holiday!
