Unlike a lot of the other places in Agios Nikolaos this place doesn't need to try and entice you to come here, after speaking to the owner its been here for 39 years and the food is amazing, we stayed for 10 nights and ate here 3 of them ! The old man who owns the taverna is hilarious calling... More

Family run, very friendly without being over the top. Good food and wine and great value. We kept going back as the others didn't seem to match.

It's 2 years since we last visited this great taverna, the welcome, service and food are just as good (if not better) than they were then. I cannot understand why it is now so far down the ratings, it was then No 1, where it deserves to be now. The welcome for customers old and new could not be warmer.... More

Just returned from another holiday in Agios, and another wonderful meal in this friendly taverna. As usual the service was first class as was the food - a trip to Agios just wouldn't be the same without a visit to this taverna ..thank you again for a lovely evening, and see you in July.

We tried this place last year and loved it so much that we decided to go back. I'm so glad we did! The service is amazing, the food is to die for and the father and son go out of their way for you! Exactly how it should be when you are enjoying your holiday! The atmosphere is great and... More

Great restaurant with attentive and welcoming staff. The traditional Greek food is cheap with good sized portions (be careful you don't order too much!) and was absolutely fantastic. A few return visits were made to sample a range of dishes, just not enough time to sample them all. This place will not disappoint.

Over two holidays, including excellent cooked breakfasts we have eaten here over 20 times, both food and hospitality have been fabulous
