We visited this place at night. The environment is amazing. The resturant is located in an isolated beach. The sea food is very fresh and extremly tasty. The staff is friendly and welcoming. I highly reccomend this resturant and i will surely get there again.

A freindly family run Taverna , set back from the quiet charming beach at Ravdoucha. We visited twice both times on Sunday. A popular spot with Greek families, the sea food is fresh and the portions generous.

We were staying at Ravdoucha Beach Studios for a week and ate several times at Waves on the Rock: it was alway good. Friendly staff. Traditional Greek cuisine. Fresh fish. Very close to the quiet pebble beach of Ravdoucha for swimming or snorkling.
