Lovely location

We really enjoy visiting Zygos, it has a lovely location situated in the corner of the lake area. It has trees and a little bridge within the restaurant area giving it a nice ambiance. The food is good and the service is attentive. They have a cockatiel in a cage under one tree and a couple of... read more

It has a nice view, you never get bored to have view as the Lake of Agios Nikolaos. Staff was okey, Me and my friends herald some cold frape and ice cream. We enjoyed it and would recommend it.

Visited here last summer and I would not go back. I ordered chicken souvlaki and it came a long time after everyone else's! On top of that it was undercooked and to be sent back. Yes you get fantastic views of the lake but the lake is surrounded by tavernas I'd rather hand over my money to.

Visited for lunch for a different view of the lake as we normally eat along the other side. My girlfriend ordered the chicken souvlaki which came undercooked, raw might be an over exaggeration but it certainly wasn't cooked properly, needless to say it was sent back. I've been going to Crete for over 20 years and this is the worst... More

Definitely the least crowded of all the eating places along the rim of Voulismeni lake as it's right in a corner. But they had enough choice on the menu, the food was good and the waiter friendly (and no loud music, like some of the other places).

We chose to eat here for 3 out of our short 4 night stay. Great location by the lake and spacious. All staff were very friendly and the food and drink were excellent; very reasonable prices for its location-would recommend!
