Perfect dishes... Everything was so delicious and tasty. The service was very good. Every night we ate there, because it is the best value for money.

Once tried never bettered; as a regular visitor to Nidri and a former chef I have not had a better meal on this side of the island. The portion sizes are generous but not wastefully so, the service is exemplary and personal despite the volume of guests they may be accomodating. Even in the busiest of times there are always...

We recently spent two weeks in Nidri, our first visit, and we like to try as many different restaurants as possible. There's not a lot between most of the restaurants and The Barrel certainly was not our favourite but we did have a nice meal and good service. We shared a starter of Tziki and bread which was very fresh... More

This Barrel is always popular and situated at the beginning of the harbour. It had come highly recommended from the other guests we were staying with. So gave it a try. We were not disappointed. The place was buzzing but nothing was too much trouble for the waiter to bring out an extra table to make room for us. Bums... More

Very popular place to eat. We ate there several times. The fish was especially good and the steak wasn't bad either. Just a little bit rushed at busy times

spent 2 weeks in nidri and visited the barrel the majority of our time there, with great food and quick reliable service where nothing was to much for the waiters who were very attentive and polite especially the owner Fotiz and Dorian who couldnt do enough for you and became good friends with. The food was very reasonably priced and... More

This Taverna is towards the start of the Port strip. There was a very nice atmosphere and the staff were friendly. The menu is typical Greek dishes and Seafood. The Kalamari, Stifado (cooked on grease proof paper) and Pork Medallions were delicious. The food arrives very quickly after ordering, however all meals are served together. At the end of the...

Good experience. OK food. It was decent, not to pricy but was not impressed. It is still one of the best restaurants we've been in.
