The waiter serving us was very enthusiastic. The ambiance at night with the pool is lovely. We had Tzatziki, Greek Salad and Chicken Souvlaki.
All were good, particularly the tzatziki. The main meal portions are not the biggest, however certainly adequate for the average person. I topped up with the portion of Dolmades vine leaf wraps which were great. We finished with delightful almond cake and ice cream which was excellent.
The restaurant is obviously geared towards the tourists rather than the Cretans where one may expect bigger portions.
However as a tourist I think you would find it highly satisfactory.

This restaurant has a lot going for it. The setting is good which sets an expectation. However, the place has no atmosphere and the staff are dour. A few smiles would be a big improvement. I had a souvlaki which was dry and without prompting the waiter suggested I try the lamb next time. The whole experience was disappointing and we are unlikely to return.

Beautiful food and excellent friendly service from Chrystyna. Lovely ambience and gardens. We ate here several times and the Calamari were wonderful. Nice gesture of organic strawberries after lunch. Smiling Papa and wonderful cook Mamma make this place a must.

Stumbled upon this place during our holiday and ate here several times as it was so good. All the staff were very friendly, especially the daughter. And we tried several of Mama's homemade dishes which were delicious. They also have a very good wine selection.

Highly recommended!

We ate at the restaurant on numerous occasions, both at lunch & dinner time. The food or service can not be faulted, perfect on every occasion.
The restuarant has outdoor seating as well as shaded areas, surrounded by beautiful flowers & well kept gardens, really helps create a lovely relaxed atmosphere.
The menu is varied with a large selection of traditional Greek dishes, all cooked on site by mama.
Lovely family run restaurant where you are truly made to feel at home. Nothing is too much, Gerry & Christina are on hand with recommendations & a wealth of knowledge. From the welcome, right through to the raki, definately a place to visit if you are staying in the area.
