Went for our anniversary dinner as recommended by our hotel receptionist and it was so nice. We had mussels and prawns as starters with grilled vegetables & lobster with spaghetti for main. Right by the beach/waterfront & enjoyed watching the sun set. The food was delicious, good portions. Just wanted the lobster a bit more seasoned.

We asked for sweet/dessert wine but wasn’t as sweet. Loved the raki @ the end though with the watermelon. Prices quite reasonable too for a nice

Food was really good, but atmosphere was so chaotic. Younger waitress was rude at first, but later it was ok. Her outfit was strange, it was nothing about restaurant personal. Later the older waitress came, and she was chewing her gum at the table. In the end, we saw our bill. Water and bread were included, what was something like we didn’t ordered. Octopus and salad were really good, but service was really poor, only the man who was sitting guests was cool.

We really wanted to love this place! The food (that came) was absolutely amazing! But the service was sadly very poor on the night we visited. We had to flag down a waiter for every single thing, from ordering drinks to chasing down food. The food that did come was lovely but only about half of what we ordered came without hassle...our kids meal took almost 2 hours to come, my husbands meal never came at all. We got drinks when we first arrived and would have happily ordered many more, but a waiter was nowhere to be seen for the 3 hours we were there. After waiting more than 2 hours for my husbands meal and with our kids falling asleep at the table we had to cancel it and he left without his meal. The wait staff that were around were all totally rushed off their feet, most of them dripping in sweat, many didn't speak any english so the ones that we did flag down to ask about our food didn't understand what we were saying. Perhaps we just caught them on a bad night, it was clearly busy, but we were sadly unimpressed. Such a shame for us as the view was spectacular and the food and drinks that we did receive were amazing.....we just would have liked a lot more!
