Stopped for delicious coffee and cake. Good value, good service. Opposite the castle on main road, not that you can miss it!

We went for a fast coffe before our swimming in the beach. We drink three coffee that they are too expensive and the brand of the espresso coffee is unknown! The taste is awfully. Also the waiter is completely unprofessional! I will never be there again!

Stopped here for lunch on a tour. The food was fairly average and in some cases poor. Hygiene seemed to be lacking and the toilets were disgusting.

The staff here were largely unfriendly and lacked some of the basics for hygiene. As we were here as part of a trip, I stayed with the safe food. Other food ordered in the group were burgers - these came without salad and a bun! It is a very large place and was mostly empty - this should suggest something.... More

The other reviews are all correct, we didn't read any before going there sadly! Food is mediocre and overpriced for what it is. The cover charge there was the highest we experienced anywhere in Crete in 2 weeks. Why? Well it's a rip off that's why, shame because it is a nice building but have to conclude to avoid at... More

Had breakfast here, nice omelets and toast. The interior is superb with stone pillars, a fountain and large mirrors hanging all around. The staff is friendly but the pricing is a bit too high for the quality of food, even everything was good. Due to lack of tourists in Frangokastello it seems that they are struggling here too. Shame. But... More

Don't go here... so many bad stories from so many people. They rinse the passing tourists to the fort, over charge and even threaten people! Guests have even called the police on more than one occasion. Do yourself a favour and take a 10 minute walk to the left (with the fort behind you) and go to Bobis and Pappis... More

Excellent position but it is a total rip off. We were wrong not having a look to TripAdvisor. 190 euros for 2 adults and 3 children.

Worst experience in Crete was there!!! Place was almost empty but our kids where tired so we went there. Rude staff and rude owner. I can't understand how police allow this place open. Expensive and filthy!! STAY AWAY

Knew it was going to be a mistake going here, but I thought it'd be ok for a quick drink and call of nature. Miserable staff, drink poor and not that cool either ( do they not have an ice machine?), expensive (I think he was just making the price up). Toilets awful, no seats, no paper, no towels. Not...
