Friendly staff and good atmosphere. Spent a few hours relaxing and was left in peace to read. Didn't try the food but I found the drinks reasonably priced and staff were happy to accommodate my unusual request for raki and Diet Coke.

Stopped off here as we headed through malia on our yearly "Beach Buggy/Quad" day out. Perfect for a Beer and Bite to eat en route. Food was plentiful and quickly served and beer was cold and cheap. Worth a visit at these affordable prices.
