The location of this restaurant is good, it's on a quiter part of the main street. The atmosphere was very cozy and the service was good. I had the stiffado and I enjoyed it a lot.

We decided to have late lunch here and ordered grilled chicken. We got a dry chicken that didn't taste much with fried potatoes drowning in oil. Service was friendly.

Nice restaurant with great service. We arrived late but they didn't rush us. We ordered a bunch of starters and one seafood plate and enjoyed every bite. We will visit again.

Good food with a lot of flavours. We recommend the spaghetti carbonara and the pizza margarita for kids. The pizza was really good. The Cis-kebab was also good. Nice staff and average prices for Crete. A good and safe choice.
