Our favourite bar in Paleochora and we would have a pre or post dinner drink here at night. Great location to people watch, staff couldn't be more welcoming and it's just a perfect place to chill in the evening. Looking forward to next year.

We've been coming here for 30 years and Yiannis has seen our children grow up. We're very fond of him, his daughter Joanna and her brother. Lovely place for a cooling drink during the day or an aperitif early evening. Always friendly and welcoming.
