First, the view from the restaurant is outstanding! Second, the food was delicious and I hope to return someday! We both had the green salad with chicken and pita with homemade tdzhiki dip. Delicious and highly recommend!

Stopped in on our walk back to Fira and loved the views, the prices and the service. The menu has many local ingredients and was so fresh the tomatoes were unbelievable in my Cretan salad.
