Excellent Fish cooked on the grill

Good fish, nice place by the beach and if you go with small kids there is a small place for them to play next to the restaurant! It is directly by the beach and the highlight is that they cook the fish on the grill and you can see it… personal is very friendly! we ate 2 times there.

So I will start by saying that the food is good, especially the grill part! The place is nice with a good view and a big terrace. It comes very close to a traditional Greek restaurant. The old guy that was manning the grill looked like he sunk with his ship at lest a couple of times. HOWEVER, they are... More

€75 for grilled Chicken skewers and a couple of beers and sprite... between 4 (2x kids) won't be rushing back.. worst part was trying to get the bill.... over 40 mins to eventually it yet every other table seemed to get there's without fuss. There are much better Restaurants in Agios Nicolas e.g. Piato

We arrived on the late ferry last night and needed a place to eat last minute that was close to our hotel. We walked around a little bit and settled on this little restaurant. They were really quite busy. The menu is posted outside in several languages. I ordered moussaka and was very disappointed...it seemed like my dish was not... More

Faros serves delicious food, cooked on the grill... and the night we ate in Faros there was live music on the beach which was great. The restaurant is lovely with pretty tables laid out by the beach, we were lucky to get one right at the seafront. They serve Greek cuisine, and you can get either meze style or main... More

Was recommended to us by a local hotel worker (no relation to owner). Staff were brilliant! Food was Brilliant! It was so good we had dinner here 4 times out of 7 days. The Kleftiko is to die for. Free WiFi a bonus too. It is situated about a 5 minute walk around the main harbour away from the area... More

Stopped by chance at this restaurant and we will probably go back. The Gyros was delicious and the house wine very drinkable. Excellent value in a relaxed and pleasant surrounding.

My partner tried the sardines which were lovely. The Kleftiko was tender but very bland (very little seasoning). Will not be going back!

Good service, nice location, decent food. What more can you ask for? We had fresh fish, Greek salad and chicken souvlaki. Only thing I did not die for, was the Greek salad, mostly because of the not so ripe tomatoes. Other than that, I can give little fault to anything.

Enjoyed kreek salad, tsatsiki and veal "stamna". Huge portion, authentic flavours and friendly staff. Cold wind from mediterreanian was not nice, even though there were plastic curtains which were ment to hold wind out fron customer seats.
