The food is excellent : local dishes and fresh fish. The restaurant is located in front of the beach with a nice view over the bay. The staff is really friendly too.

We have been visiting Onar for 10 years now and return because the food is so good and the staff are friendly and helpful. The menu is quite extensive and has local and European dishes to choose from - the steaks and fresh Tuna (when available)are particularly good

We went there for lunch and returned for dinner because this restaurant is so good (I have to say we choose it due to TripAdvisor this time). The service was very good, we tried the grilled calamari, stuffed courgette flowers leafs, stuffed tomatoes and it was very tasty. Good music, beautiful views to the port.

This place received numerous positive reviews, but the last year things changed... Several friends and ourselves were disappointed by relatively tasteless food and unmotivated staff. Come on guys - you can do better!

Recommended by the local business people ( jewelery shop etc ) and yes it was good and fresh and value for money. We ordered the gamba naturel and med. Sauce, both fantastic. Later we saw that this is restaurant numero uno !!!!! ANYHOW. Pleasant service and sometimes even life music.

The view from the terras is outstanding. However the food was not as good as hoped for. Swordfish with Metaxa sauce had no real taste and was overcooked. Getting attention from the owner to get the bill was difficult since he was entertaining en drinking lots of Raki with his regular guests. We will not go back to this recommended... More

Onar's restaurant is based over looking the beautiful view of the habour. It has two restaurants across from each other which can take over spill from each other, which they often do!.
