High above the harbour on a pleasant balcony with a heater to keep us comfortable. Our food was collectively outstanding. Waiters were very pleasant and gave us good attention. Complimentary tart and liquor ended the evening.

Great food and a great view. Not nearly as pricey as I had expected. We had the place to ourselves in November and it seemed magical to us. Good wine list; try the local wines.

Here's the finest "balcony" in the city embraced by the soft breeze of the Cretan Sea, offering the most beautiful panoramic views of the old city harbor and the Venetian fortress you'll ever see. The inspired menu primes your palate for fresh fish and seafood cooked to perfection, tender meats, refreshing vegetables and season salads, fine appetizers accompanied by ouzo or raki, and a variety of fine wines.
