We visited twice. The views are fantastic, service is good and the food is also really good. We tried a few places in Sami and this was our favourite. Would definitely recommend.

The Host speaks good Englisch so you can make a good choice on the menu. Near the beach it gives you a romantic feeling and with a nice brise, it will be a perfect evening.
