The restaurant sits on the main drag but even sitting on the terrace it's pleasantly screened from the road. The presentation immediately sets it out from and above the nearby restaurants. Excellent and varied menu, good ingredients, fanastic flavours brilliantly cooked and presented. Knowledgable and friendly staff. A great sea food place

We visited the restaurant on the first night of their season on recommendation of a local shop owner.
We wanted to try local fresh fish and we're not disappointed. The dishes we had included shrimp risotto and lobster pasta. Both were delicious.
The chef gave us complimentary lemon sorbet and a taste of avocado mousse.
Happy to recommend.

Thank Anne H

This is one of few restaurants that makes me happy. From the start and the greeting from the Russian girl in front. I feel ashamed that I don't remember her name.

The cuisine is well worth the wait and well worth a detour. I was amazed by finding this type of wonderfull cuisine in a tourist trap.

Come here, join, enjoy and love.

I've had enjoyed SO MUCH my lunch today. Prices are reasonnable. €52 with bottle of white wine.
I have four of the starter menu : mussels with assirtiko wine, prawn and mushroom mille feuille, deep fried squid with chili jam, cretan salad with cretan cheese and basil oil.
All of them were absolutely delicious.
The service was discret and perfect.
I am coming back for sure to try the rest of the menu.
