Having eaten at the restaurant several times over the 2 week stay, we wittily renamed this establishment - "Lorraine's Tragic Hill", as opposed to Lorraine's Magic Hill. There were several factors that lead us to form a negative opinion of Lorraine's. Whilst on the one hand, the first meal we had was very good, unfortunately subsequent visits indicated that either we were being affected by the heat, or that we had consumed several glasses of wine prior to our visit. The food is (and for no good reason)overpriced. My partner had a shrimp dish that contained a mere 3 underdeveloped shrimps. This would not have been too unforgivable - except that the dish was priced at some 12 euros. We found Lorraine to be equally parts abrasive in her manner, and distinctly poe faced. We had the impression on our second visit that she actually didnt want to be there. Perhaps a clinical approach is acceptable - even preferable to some, but not for us. Perhaps we are young and cynical - but then again, perhaps Lorraine is old and jaded (before her time).
Unfortunately for us - there was no 'magic' in Lorraine's hill(wherein the problem possibly lies).
The food was really good the first night, one of the best meals we had. Although I didn't feel that Lorrraine really wanted us to be there ( which was a bit of a downside). It didn't feel as cosy as some of the other, more traditional, greek restaurants and although Lorraine appeared welcoming I didn't feel it was whole-hearted. We chatted to the other waitress and she was friendly.
Perhaps I could say it just wasn't quite what we were looking for.
However, it was busy when we went so it was clear that other people enjoyed it.
It took me ages to decide which appartment to book but I'm glad we booked this one. We had a great view of the sea, which was so close that you could here the waves lapping at night. It was so clean as well!!!
bit of a trek up to the town but everything you needed was all on the same level, the beach, the mini-mart, the tavernas and the charming little hut/ bar right by our appatments (owned by a lovely family who made us feel so welcome).
Because there are only eight rooms we made friends with all the other holiday-makers which was lovely. However you could still maintain your own privacy.
I just loved the little chair on the ground floor where everyone left there books and magazines to exchange. If anyone goes there I reccommend reading the James Patterson book!I also left a pile of magazines after I finished them.
It was very quiet, stunning! A place I'll definately remember.
