Opposite the north end of the sandy beach. Good to relax at any time, but an end of evening Metaxa 7* was just what I wanted - pleasant service helped as well.

A bit expensive and no buffet/combination so you have to order everything separate to get one meal (egg, bread, butter and so on). The omelete was ok but nothing special. Very good juice and coffee, and a very good selection. The location is excellent.

The view of the road isn’t great, but the very pleasant staff and fast service make up for it. Very good choice for breakfast.
