Good fish and authentic Greek food. We wouldn't ask for more. Very friendly service from Costas who gave me a tip on how to dress a Greek salad.

We ate here on a windy evening in mid-September so chose to be in the main building. Yes, it's on a busy road but we were not troubled by noise. . Good Cretan food and wine and very friendly and helpful service, and good value..

Great location, easy to find restaurant. Very friendly, fast service. The food was absolutely delicious and fresh. The waiter deboned our sea bass for us as well. The zucchini fries are a must! Right on the water front as well. Highly recommend!
