Rustic-greek athmosphere, excellent views over the beach and sea, very special during sun-down. Food good, better than average but lacked the same strong, rustic feeling that the restaurant interior and cathering design promised. Service also a minus. With a better service would visit again.

Can't praise highly enough: right on the beach, comfy chairs, perfect service and the food was just perfect: choice, fresh ingredients, beautiful flavours. Costs more than the roadside eateries but order less as the portions are generous. We will be going back for our last...More
