Reviewed yesterday NEW

Pleasant restaurant, upstairs from the main street & away from the traffic noise, & overlooking the sea in the distance. The staff were friendly and the food was plentiful & good. We were brought a plate of fruit & cake after we had finished, which was lovely, but we were unable to eat much, as we were full.

Food and service was excellent. Really nice terrace with a view of the sea and hills. Big and well made portions and they even finish with free ice cream, deep fried bananas, cake and fruit. I highly recommended this restaurant.

Very tasty food and excellent service. Quite far away from the sea but the view from the terrace is amazing. Worth visiting.

Very good food, I have had the beef steak & my wife and daughter have tried the chiken skeweres, after we ate, they brought us lots of variety of deserts on the house. Very friendly staff, and good location, I would recommand it.
