It's set above a nice sandy... More

We were here at the start of the tourist season so the restaurant wasn't too crowded. The owner was very nice and we've ordered some traditional food - nice and big portions. Homemade lemonade and very good coffee. The view is excellent. Loved it.

From the first moment you feel like at home. Great hospitality, excellent service, gorgeous food. The location, the atmosphere: unbelievable. And if you are lucky and timing is right you can experience stunning sunsets. Many thanks to Joanna and her Mum. We are coming back.

Emailed this place in October to check if still open and got prompt reply. It's open April to October every day and Nov to March on Sunday lunches only. Lovely welcome and service. Food was really good including Stuffed Squid and Very large Grilled Prawns. Reasonable prices. One of best meals of holiday.

Beautiful setting, good authentic food and the staff are so friendly. The beef stifado is a must have and the doughnuts with honey, cinnamon and sesame seeds are amazing. Would definitely recommend this place.
