Located next to sea with nice view.Unfortunately the dishes are poor and the prices for some reason are too high.There are many restaurants in the area that offer better food for sure.

Obviously I am not talking merely about the place's reputation within the trip advisor community, but also about the general reputation among the locals and more, for more than two decades. Well prepared fresh fish and seafood is at a premium here, at an excellent location right on the coast. The thing that made me give a 5 out of... More

Between the food and the location the restaurant is almost majestic. Although, depending on the food that you order you could be in for a pretty penny. This does not mean that the food and location is not completely worth it. Compared to other restaurants in the same location the price is equal if not better. Between the exquisite food... More

A restaurant on the sea on a big rock. The best view, the best atmosphere but when you see the bill you will cry!!! Very expensive.

This was a real delight! The view, the food, the wine, the wave sounds... Do not miss the home made "dolmadakia", the house wine is very good and the black risotto delicious! We saw the kakavia ( fish soup) looked perfect but did not order it. It is a bit high priced but it is worth it! I wonder why... More

We showed up at around 6, not the regular Greek dinner time, but we were welcome to sit down and have dinner(: As their specialty is realy fresh fish, we were invited to come into the... More

If you want to enjoy great sea food in pk you need to check this place out. You can literally sit right on the water line in the cool evening and enjoy your sea food here. I can recommend the squid ink risotto, the prawns in ouzo and sea food pasta. All of these are superb and reasonably priced compared... More
