Service was incredibly poor. Ordered three wines off their list none of which were available. Was steered to a Rose’ bottle that server had difficulty opening. Actually turning the corkscrew the wrong way and not taking any help or advice. The wine was brownish and...obviously by time/poor storage. Blond, rather unfriendly waitress said we had to pay for it because we ordered it. We suggested a liter of the house wine to replace it but no go, we were, to pay for the tainted bottle. Decided to leave, she threatened to call police, we said sure, waited, then left. Completely idiotic.More

The food was okay, but their service is quite unprofessional. Didn't ask for any side dishes so I assumed that there is one included. Surprised to see there was none after 30 minutes of wait (for which she dud apologize), also no napkin. Had to...ask for it. Side dish was okay. The younger waitress just put a stash of napkins on the table. The older waiteress (I assume also owner?) was not very pleasant, she had quite an attitude and acted annoyed and I didn't feel welcome. She seems very frustrated and unhappy with herself and projecting it. That evening was my last one of my trip and I wanted to try that taverna again, as it was a couple of years ago music and some dancing. I guess I should have read the reviews on here as well and just on Google more carefully. It left a bit of a bitter taste to an otherwise nice holiday. I work with clients every single day. If you don't like your job, do yourself and patrons a favor and do something else with your life. If you are unhappy, get some help. But don't act like that to customers. All the best to you!More

I really enjoyed eating here. Great service, great food. The menu is fairly typical but with a few nice additions. Recommended

What a pity. Even though is at a great location, the food is for scrap. We spent for a family of four the most money we spent anywhere in Crete!!! The food was no good at all. The food was awful and we couldn’t eat...it. I recommend any of the many other places at the same beach. We tried a few other options and they were much better and definitely cheaper, for exactly the same dishes!!!!More

Everything what we ordered was delicious. Octopus, squids, anchovies, Greek salad - very good. We also ordered dishes from kids menu - our daughters were satisfied.

This restaurant is in a fantastic location and we went in with high expectations as the sun set across the bay. However, this didn’t last long! In short, the food was average and one of our main dishes was inaccurate, the mains arrived prior to...the starters being anywhere near finished 🤦‍♂️. House wine terrible. The poor waiting team had no direction and the management were nowhere to be seen - lazy and complacent restaurant. With so much amazing competition locally and around Crete this is not a typical and should be avoided.More

We where here a few years ago and had a very good experience. This time, we hardly got to start on our starters before the main courses arrived - very strange and we had to choose between eating the starters and let the main dish...get cold... There where only a few people in the restaurant. The food was good, but rhe experience was not so good.More

We went here with 3 person's on a Sunday. Not crowded. The waiters seemed a bit annoyed by something. We took the calamari and 2 times the meat plate. The calamari was average and the meat plates below that. House white wine was also quite...bad. Maybe the seafood is good, but for anything else would not recommend.More

During our stay in Chania we decided to come to this restaurant which had been recommended. The service was very good, calm and friendly. The location and view is excellent. We ordered Picarel, Greek Salda, fresh stuffed grilled Cuttlefish (feta, herbs) and grilled Octopus. Everything...was very good. The food is very fresh and tasty! Fair price! I recommend. CheersMore

We rented loungers and were happy to have drinks delivered to us on the beach. We went up to the restaurant for a light lunch and had super fresh authentic Greek food served by a really friendly and helpful young lady. We will be back....Perfect set up.More
