My husband and I visited here quite a lot over our two weeks stay in Agios Nikolaos. We enjoyed the food which was good value as were the drinks. The outlook is just lovely. We have never laughed so much, the father and son are so nice and make you feel welcome. Please give them a try when you visit... More
