We have just eaten at this restaurant and I couldn't get to my computer quick enough to write this and prevent anyone else from dining here!! Our bill came to just under €200 for 4 people and we only received four drinks, one appetiser and two mains. We were welcomed by a pushy older man who offered us a cactus cocktail each that was implied as 'on the house' and then tried to sell us into the seafood appetisers and fresh seafood per person however we had a vegetarian so decided against it. Luckily we did because looking at other comments we got off lightly. We received a basket of bread and butter, a standard on the house item and something we DIDN'T ORDER, and got charged €12 including €1 for each person who ate from the small butter cup. The meals that we did order didn't arrive until one and a half hours and by then the food cold and basic at best. And unfortunately we ate it because we were famished The appetiser plate was a grease filled pile of non-descript items not worth it's €30. The meat main was called a gourmet meat selection for two costing €70 which was nothing more than a cup full of stroganoff, cold fries and rice - have no idea how that was supposed to resemble a meat selection. The second main was a vegetable risotto the size of a baby's hand - a packet mix would have tasted better. We ordered all food to share as we had learnt in Crete that the servings were large in Greece, however this was not the case here. When it came to the bill, we asked for it three times and had to walk up to the cashier before we finally saw the bill. When we saw it, we were shocked with the price and were also slapped with a €12 'tax' on our bill, even after on the menu it said this was included in the price. When we confronted them on the food and cost, they palmed us onto the nastiest women we have ever met who pulled us into a quiet area away from everyone and started shouting at us after we said we didn't want to pay the full price for the meat tray. I have never met anyone or any place like it, and coming from Crete where you will find the nicest people ever, it was a shock to deal with this. After a half hour discussion on our concerns with this woman on the entire scam, they refused to budge and put the blame on us, we ended up paying the bill and never want to see that place again. Upon leaving we were discussing how upsetting the entire night had been and someone overheard, telling us that this has been happening for ages and they keep changing the name to avoid bad reviews, just like everyone else has said in their reviews. If you sit down at a restaurant in Fera and are offered a cactus cocktail, LEAVE IMMEDIATELY. This is the only time we haven't looked at trip advisor, big mistake. Never again.

This restaurant is a big rip off. The food is extremely expensive, you don't get much & it's not very well cooked. The restaurant charged us 12 euro 'entrance' fee, without telling us. They gave us bread we didn't ask for then charged us for that, then charged us 70 euro for a 'gourmet' meat plate, with hardly any meat and fries!
We then contested this price, only to be yelled at by the lady working there & after a 20 minute argument with her we paid in full as she was threatening to call the police. There are many other restaurants with a beautiful view at a quarter of the price.

A ripoff (or rip-off) is a bad financial transaction. Usually it refers to an incident in which a person is overcharged for something, or receives goods or services not of the standard expected for the price. A ripoff is usually distinguished from a scam in that a scam involves wrongdoing such as fraud.
In the USA I would shut down this place in an hour.

485 Euro for 4 people. That's over $700. They intentionally brought out more food than we needed and still charged for it. Then they balked when we wanted to pay with credit cards. This place should be shut down for their predatory practices. Prices are outrageous and they aren't clearly indicated (they use a confusing price per pound system). Seriously, do not get scammed like we were.
