Amazing location, by the beach. Very well kept with minimal design, nice wooden tables and white decor. Really good service with polite waiters. The food was greek gourmet type using organic ingredients. They also had dishes of the day. We tried the grouper, shrimp risotto and Cretan salad that were both delicious! They also offered us tsikoudia (kind of snaps)... More

This restaurant is set in a stunning location, and when reviewing other reviews this is certainly backed up, however we did not realise that very few mention about the quality of the food. Whilst eating our starters which were non seafood we were discussing about re-booking because the setting and view was amazing. However we both ordered seafood main courses... More

Went there because of the rave reviews of the setting and the promise of good food, and was not impressed. The view was spectacular, but only from a few tables closest to the shore. We were not able to get any of them, even with advance booking from our hotel reception, so I was left admiring a blank wall of... More

If you want a restaurant with a view then this certainly has that. If, however, you want good food I could not recommend it. I did choose something which was odd, which was partly their fault as it was called a sea urchin salad but turned out to be a weird kind of soup. Perhaps this was my ignorance of... More

We ate here our last day in Crete. It is located on the far end of town on the water . The far end if you are coming from Heraklion. Google maps is a big help locating this place. The food, service, and location all 5 star. Situated away from the tourist area, you can have a quiet, elegant, and... More

We strive for what we love in a world that has forgotten the value of food in our lives. A plate of food, eaten in a restaurant or at home, the taste and the quality depends on the raw materials we use. With this as our principle and also that are forthright in any form of mass production of the raw materials, we have come and we have partnerships only with small local producers, who have the same philosophy as us. Our cuisine consists of raw materials without pesticides and fertilizers and from animals grown and fed in nature, as normally required in warehouses and not eating GM foods.
