Glad I got there early - soon filled up with people also waiting for a table. No "thank you" raki, but excellent fresh Cretan food, well cooked and reasonably priced.

Leaving dirty plates on the table and missing out the usual free raki (as mentioned by others) is a worrying sign that this very nice restaurant which we like may be loosing it's focus & forgetting that repeat business matters. Times are obviously good now, but they need to remember things can change. Shame, as we always enjoyed it in... More

On our last holiday we had two of the best meals at Pantelis. We dined again on two occasions this time but one was a little disappointing. Staff are very friendly and the service was good but, unlke the beef stifado and briam, the meatballs were nothing special. The number of tables have increased since last time and this did... More

Usually price and level of quality are accompanied and synchronized. This is the case ! Also this is a classic Greek tavern and very friendly staff. But it is needed to make an upgrade to the menu.

Situated just of the harbour area alongside another couple of tavernas which give the area a really nice feel. Lovely courtyard area for dining, the food was decent although we found the service very haphazard although reasonably friendly. In fairness the restuarant was busy but the waiters seemed to be unsure as to who was covering each of the tables.... More

We were the a couple of days ago. We thought it looked interesting and we gave it a try. We wanted to taste small dishes of different foods, but the variety on the menu was limited, especially on the seafood section. So, we ordered the seafood plate with octopus, squeeds and shrimps, as well as a salad and some potato... More

Love this place. Friendly service and food always good especially the lamb baked in herbs, rabbit stifado and fish platter. Well worth a visit.

Small restaurant, although it is in the process of expanding, but well worth a visit. Tucked up a small side street, you get the chance to eat in the open air without feeling you're on public view. Good food and good fresh fish.

Excellent meal, had the lamb special cooked in the oven, with mint. Starters were fresh courgettes in batter beautifully cooked, crisp not overdone
