Although a very welcome was given by the staff this is really the only positive comment I can make. The food was greasy and tasteless, the house white wine was almost undrinkable. One taverna we will not be visiting again next yea!

Wow I have no idea how this restaurant can have so many good reviews?!! We came on a Saturday evening - we were so hungry and we should have turned away when we saw the chocolate fudge cake and garlic bread on the menu - evidently aimed at tourists. The other big tell tale sign was when the waiter tried... More

Made this our venue for a nightcap each night of our stay. Very welcoming patron. Plenty of tables and lots of diners.

I wrote last year that this was our favourite restaurant in Agios Nikolaos and can gladly say that the standards have not slipped at all. For the ridiculously low price of €31 we had a 2 course meal and a small carafe of local wine - and then also had a free glass of wine each before we left. For... More

We have been using Knossos Taverna for many years, and the tradition is it has to be the first meal of the holiday. Good to see Bill again, lovely food and always an enjoyable experience. Hope to see you again next year!

After trying, unsuccessfully to eat at Avra (separate review), we ended up here, which turned out to be a positive, friendly helpful staff, prompt service and good food.. A positive also is they had all of our first choices which Avra didn't, and we're not suffering from the "National Steak Shortage" as per Avra's excuses for not having any steak.... More

Ate here twice this week. The weather has been awful this week and could explain why there are so few people out and about. Both times the place was almost empty. The food we had was very good and very reasonably priced. I enjoyed a bottle of the Greek White wine with Calamari and steak. Would definitely return. The host... More

Came back to this restaurant on our second visit to Agios Nikolaos. The food is good, the welcome friendly and the prices reasonable. I've just marked one grade down because the atmosphere is somewhat spoilt by the traffic noise. (Unfortunately there's not much the owners can do about that!)
