Very popular place & good to watch the world go by I had chicken souvlaki not the best I've had this week, hubby had a pizza again not the best as it had a very soggy bottom. Good service with reasonable prices.

Although we stay all inclusive at the aphrodite beach club hotel just down the road we always visit the Pella for a couple of meals and a drink during our stay. The location is great overlooking the harbour and sea. The food is excellent and service is great.free WiFi and prices are reasonable.

Loved both lunch and dinner at Pella. Our 7 year old always wanted to come here too. Prices are reasonable and food was always a pleasure to eat. Staff are very friendly and can not do enough for you will definitely return on our next trip

We were living in the Pella apartments so came here on our first full day as we hadn't explored the resort yet. We weren't disappointed though food was a very high standard and the staff are very friendly. They use the restaurant as the reception for the apartments. They are on the go all day. Worth taking time to eat... More

We stayed at Pella apartments and ate here every night. A good selection of great-tasting food. Very accommodating to a young family. Guests from nearby hotels were also eating here! Try the kleftiko!

The restaurant has a great location, it is on a promenade with a direct sea view and if you are eating there in the evening you can admire the sunset. We ate meatballs with cheese and a mixed plate with cretan dishes. It was really good and the portions were reasonable. For the end we've got a complimentary mini homemade... More

We stayed at the hotel and ate in the restaurant through out our stay. Fabulous food cooked on site with plenty to choose from especially the fresh fish. Would recommend anyone to pop in for great food but also a very friendly and welcoming experience. Just fab

Me and my other half ate here everyday for the duration of our stay, and I can honestly say every meal we had was brilliant. Eleni and stavros and all the family are excellent hosts, with attentive and friendly service and always stop by for a chat about your day. Back to food, everything we had was beautiful, the portions... More
