We loved the mezze, just shared a few small dishes between the two of us. The garlic bread is out of this world fantastic, the wine is ok and the waiter can be very charming. Their terrace upstairs is beautiful and prices are reasonable. We returned to this place during our holidays.

This place is in the old town. It offers a small but varied menu, with new dishes added this summer. My partner and I tried the pancetta and also pork cuts in cream and brandy sauce, very tasty indeed. There is also an extensive pizza menu to choose from. Nice vibe, nice people and good food. Go visit....

The stuff is friendly, the food is very good. But the location is very enjoying. Busses, quads and tuned motorbikes are passing all the time.

I've been there in July during my vacation in Malia. The place is really nice and the staff is really nice and helpful too, nothing to complaints about service received. What I didn't like was the fried Calamari (old oil used and over cooked - very bad taste) I took also marinated octopus (7 euro) for just one tentacle (the... More
