Visited this place with my father several times. Useally not a fan of going to the same restaurant again and again. But there was something magical with Mr. Raki and the mamas cooking. So good and fresh Greek cuisine. We had vegetarian dishes and lamb and meat. Perfect family thing. Ps. Strong Raki :)

Great atmosphere, traditional cretan food and to top it all off, savoury raki. The service was nice and helpful, in tandem with the cretan hospitality. I would definitely visit it again!

Very friendly staff and the food was excellent. We have eaten there few times and we have enjoyed every minute, what we have spend time there. There was a large kidspark and also different kind of toys. We reccomend everybody to go there and enjoy the traditional Greek evening.

There is nothing to dislike here it is quite simply ok. The best part was the entertainment and ' John' is quite a scientist coming up with all sorts of puzzles and tricks. My son really liked his Spaghetti Bolognese as it was cooked to perfection (aldante) and he never had given anywhere else the same scoring.

Not far from the main road.Local lamb of excellent quality. Courgette balls one of our favourites too. Always prefer to eat away from beach front as food better going towards Pano Agia Marina. Thank you Yiannis and so sorry forgot your name( guy from Albania). You make a great team. Hope to return September.
