Very good fresh fish and accompanying side dishes made this a wonderful Christmas brunch—good service despite the large local crowd!

we visited 5 times and were never disappointed.The views across the water to Rethymnon town and the Fort are really super, and to be able to sit right by the water whilst eating is quite special. The food and service are top class......very highly recommended.
