We tried many different Greek dishes and everything was very good. The waitstaff and owner were very friendly. Our dessert that was " gratis' was the best watermelon I have had in awhile. I would recommend this restaurant.

Quantity: small of meat and fish, a lot of potatoes. Quality : nothing special, you normally eat much better in Greek restaurants. Our fish was too cooked and dry, chicken not tasty and dry. Very touristic. Price: average. If you can, go somewhere else.

I loved everything about this place, from the decorations inside and outside, to the welcoming staff, and of course, the excellent food. We've been there last year for the first time - a chance discovery - and we fell in love with the place immediately....More

From the beginning till the end perfect. Great greek salad with soft cheese, nice moussaka, beans and everything home grown. Dessert also special yoghurt. Prices expensive like everywhere in crete but worth the money cause it was delicious!
