It was the same excellent restaurant as always which meant we had to go EVERY night. And why not? What more could you ask for? Superb food and menu choice - great prices and extremely good hosts. Lovely family run taverna with a welcoming atmosphere. Love it, love it, love it!

It's a nice restaurant with a good broad menu - we've only been there for lunch, but this has been very good. It's friendly with good service - I can recommend the Cretan omelette.
