Staying at the Domes so this is just a 10 minute walk. The food is excellent! I was taken by the photo here of the french fries - they looked crispy and well cooked vs the often soggy fish & chip versions. And indeed they...More

WE had lovey food - the waiter was brilliant - rushing around looking after everyone. Sadly there were no met balls left but the courgette pies were fantastic and so are their salads

The food was Ok but not great, as expected by a Cretan taverna. Service was a bit slow. Prices were Ok - price for value was average. Environment was nice, not with a seaside though

Our company is located in a small seaside village. In our space homemade traditional cuisine with fresh local ingredients leading to the remarkable wine list of local organic producers, and in combination with the user-friendly interface and highly trained staff creates a valuable option for relaxation and enjoyment. Our shop serves traditional breakfast with fresh fruit juices, homemade cakes and pies. You can choose from our menu, appetizers and main dishes cooked with love and respect to raw materials. Do not forget to try the excellent Tarama and homemade pie Mrs. Ritchie. Also a very interesting proposition is the cocktail serve with fresh ingredients. Occasionally we organize musical evenings with local music without microphones and sound installations, so that we become a company.
