Lovely location with great views and a well heated outdoor dining area. Grey snapper was excellent with nice bean side salad and rice. Moussaka was less good - a bit dry and lacking seasoning but good enough. Waiters quite friendly though end of season looking...More

We entered the restaurant with a group of six after seeing all the positive ratings and signs posted outside and were hugely disappointed! The food was acceptable after all, but way below other places we had tried in the direct vicinity. The service was nice,...More

Lovely fresh local produce with extremely generous portions and great atmosphere. Set against the backdrop of the harbour and with friendly staff, we passed a very enjoyable evening. Would return.

Very good selections and service is excellent. Of course, convenient to the related hotel (who offers discounts for those staying at the hotel). Try to get a seat near the harbor as it can be warm near the back of the restaurant.
