Clearly the best about this restaurant is the music which is typical for Crete and played in a charming, yet professional way. The service is attentive and quick, prices a little on the higher side but ok. The food is nothing special, the usual culprits...More

We got suckered in by the pretty decor but do yourself a favour and go eat elsewhere. Food was bland and overpriced. More than anything the service was atrocious. Our waiter (young guy with goatee) was rude and completely useless and i suspect racist. The...More
