Just the meal we were looking for. After a long day at Samaria Gorge, my mom and I were a tad hungry but tired, so we decided to venture just a few blocks to Kyano Beach Restaurant. We are glad we did. The service was very friendly, nice relaxing atmosphere, and a good selection of Greek foods. Serving sizes were... More

Enjoyed the Cretan pie, moussaka and fish dishes. Pleasant background music, no TV (hurrah!) and friendly owner who had time to chat.

I was there early for a full English breakfast at 10h with beautiful light and tranquility. The food was very nice with eggs, bacon, toast, juice etc. Gorgeous view from the beach and very friendly personnel. The lunch and dinner is apparently very good according to the locals.

We visited this lovely restaurant twice last year and wanted to repeat it once again this year. We had a lovely time and ate a 4 dip plate with warm bread as starter wich was delicious. The chicken souvlaki was very tasty as main course.

We ate here twice during our stay. The main reason was the location, right on the beach which meant you could hear the sea as backing music. But the staff were lovely, not too intrusive but there when you needed them. And fascinating to hear the story of the rescue cats/attack cats which one staff member in particular seems to... More
