Probably the best place for lunch, dinner, or just to take some rest on whole seashore of Chania. All meals are perfect prepared. Service leds by Gergana is on outstanding level.

What is it that makes a restaurant memorable? When so many restaurants provide excellent but similar Greek dishes, what is it that makes a difference so you go back many times?

Located just along the beach the food is good, with good price, but the service is amazing! That's the major reason to go back over and over again! Highly recommended.
