“Amazing environment and garden for a delicious meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2013

The owner is very friendly, speaks fluent English and French.
You will enjoy a dinner in a beautiful and refreshing garden (forget some kitsch statues...) with beautiful flowers and trees.
The dishes were huge and very tasty, especially the zucchini stuffed flowers.
A unique and different restaurant in Falasarna area

“So so”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2013

We tried this one night as an alternative to our hotel restaurant and decided to stay in the hotel the next night. Really nice garden area, friendly service but the food was pretty standard.

“Chill environment, romantic atmosphere, great sunset!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2013

If you want to make a great surprise to someone and/or celebrating an event, this is the right place to go. The owner is very kind and keen on helping to prepare a lovely decorated table. The homemade food is simple but so tasty, as always! The beach next to the restaurant really worth the view. To us it was the perfect combination for a sunny day or two! Thanks Giorgos~

“Fresh fish, 'n friendly!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2013

We went at the start of Lent in March. Fabulous fresh calamari and taramosalata. A genuine warm Cretan welcome, even though they were very busy. In summer, there's a great play area outside and lots of seating in the shade. I can't recommend any tavernas on the north, tourist beach. Come into the proper, all-year-round village of Falassarna and eat somewhere genuine.
