Where food is a science

We went twice to this place and each time the welcome, food and drinks we're very good. They have a few different beers brewed for the restaurant that are lovely and a nice change to the lager served everywhere. The owner/ chef is a food scientist so knows how to combine flavours and present the... read more

I have to say that I am really confused about this restaurant. I visited this place together with 12 of my guide colleagues, and maybe it was because we were so many (not that it should ever be a problem!), but something went wrong in the kitchen. First of all we had to wait 35 minutes before the first persons... More

The starters like the smoked baby tuna was smoked right in front of us, which was a nice to witness and just enjoy with the mushrooms caputsino. the main dish the fresh pasta was to die for, and the many greek specialities like the mousaka, kleftiko lamb, and the deserts such as the apple pie was delicious.

This taverna advertise bad view, bad service but great food. One of those were completely wrong. The food was great, and so was the service. A nice place to dine and use time when you are in Aqua Marina.

We were three families visiting Nostos Restaurant in Agia Marina in Crete together on our summer vacation in 2013. The children loved the playground - it had good space for running, and even a goal so they could play some soccer :-) The food was delicious - we tried the shrimp risotto with saffran and gyros with feta cheese. In... More

Only spent a week in Crete but had the most amazing holiday - tried a different place to eat every evening, and the meal here was far the best of the lot! We are only sorry we didn't try it earlier on in the week as would have gone back for a final evening. Staff friendly they were not on... More

Sunday evening barbeque highly recommened! You find this restaurant: Blue sign "Lily's corner" on main road on right side from Agia Marina to Chania direction. Turn to old village road from Lily's Corner and walk some hundreds meters, Nostos is on left side opposite to Nymfi restaurant.

One of the most authentic and delicious meals I have ever had in Crete. If you love fish then you should definitely try the shrimp risotto because after that nothing will ever compare to it...I mean it! Friendly staff and excellent service...I will definitely go back for more!

We were looking forward to visit this restaurant because of some friend's recommendation. I'm glad we did. Everything was perfect. We had lamb kleftiko and beef strip steak. Lamb was full of taste and steak the best i have ever tried. I highly recommend it!!!

My fiance and I were just passing by and decided to pop in for a quick snack and ended up having the most AMAZING experience. Not only was the food absolutely incredible (the drinks were yummy too) but the staff was delightful and the view was to die for! Definitely try the calamari - the best ever!!! I would recommend...
