A wonderful, family run restaurant in a beautiful location. We ate a wide variety of food and everything was fresh and very tasty The perfect place for a romantic dinner, wedding party, get together with friends or just somewhere to sit and look over the ocean.

We came twice because of the great food and the nice service. They were very nice to our kids which also liked the cave in the backyard. The view over the see is great. We had a free and delicious cake and raki at the end.

Come early, as most of the good tables close to the balcony are taken very soon. The food was just fantastic and I can especially recommend the rabbit stew, as it was the best I had during my 14 days in Crete. While the prices are a bit above the average, the service is great and Raki and dessert are... More

If you want good traditional Creten food with no silly twists. Fresh ingredients and genuine friendly polite service with splendid panoramic views of Falasarna bay then this is the place for you. The prices were good and the waitress was very pretty ;)
