Everyone was really friendly and welcoming. Felt like a lovely family restaurant. The ribs were amazing! We polished one and ordered another as they were so good! Definitely recommend if you are a meat fan.

If you like meat, eat at Crocodile. Not that there were any reptiles on the menu. Makes a good change, and close to the bars near the ferry jetty. Probably good if you have kids that aren't crazy for Cretan specialties?
