Very nice sunset and then even better night view. We recommend fish and seafood, plate for two was exactly what we were looking for. Very delicious food and very friendly staff.

As the title suggests, I am to be found in the Sirtaki more than any other place in Matala, Vassili and Yanni I class as friends more than owner and waiter, you're always guaranteed a warm welcome ( and Raki ) like anywhere in Matala, it can get crowded in the afternoons when the tour busses arrive, but, that adds...

The fish was pure and very fresh! Lovely. The people who work there are very friendly. Afterwards you will get Raki grapes and oliebollen.

As the title already suggests, we had a great dinner here with a nice view on the sea and the beach. The service was excellent and also the house wine is something definitely worth the money. Bread, Raki and fruits for dessert were free with the meal as well.

Great place to eat fresh food with an awesome view on the bay. Prices are really low as per value you get. We enjoyed our dinner with Bob Marley music which made our dinner one of best we had in Crete. Highly Recommended.

The food is authentically Greek; it's amazing! Loved the snails. Great place for a quick lunch by the beach or a romantic dinner with views you will never forget. We did both. Thank you for amazing food with a beautiful view. :)
