Only stopped here for breakfast, but totally worth it. Big breakfast menu, sea views. Complete set-up for your day.

Must say this is the best value English breakfast in Skala at €5 it really is great value. Nice and filling and very tasty - it's situated by the Roman villa and around the corner from Socrates, we didn't eat here at night as we ran out of nights but we shall be here to try next year.
