Best in Crete

The good is wonderful, the location is perfect and the twins who work there are so friendly. I've been going to Crete for 20 years with my parents and for the last 3 with my girlfriend and we spend around 80% of our evening meals in here, there's nowhere better in my opinion.

My boyfriend and his family have been visiting Greece for the past 20 years and to this restaurant for the past 10. So naturally we eat here on holiday! This taverna is amazing. Fantastic views over the lake, great service from George and Fontas and the food is outstanding. The food is so good I find myself planning out menu... More

Very homely, made very welcome and great food. Had greek salad which was wonderfully fresh, stifado and moussaka, all lovely. Dessert of baklava excellent too. Nice shot of raki to finish off. On the main road just up from the Osmos Hotel.

Spent a day of our holidays in Agios Nikolaos and decided to have here due to lovely view of the lake. Food was good and reasonably priced. The staff were great, friendly and had a good sense of humour.

Nice location, but that's about it. Staff were not interested, menu was thrown on the table in front of me. Food was fairly ordinary and the milk shake was very weak and tasteless. There are plenty more to choose from in the area.

This was our first visit to Agios Nikolaos and this restaurant did not disappoint us. Located overlooking the lake that is connected to the port. Good service and very good food. For the location the prices were good as we'll.

There are many overated establishments around the lake at Agios Nikolaos, but this certainly in not one of them. The welcome and service are superb, and being by the lake, can be quite stunning. The food is always decent and good value for money compared with others in the vicinity. I am looking forward to another visit.

Been going to this taverna for the last 10 years or more, every year. We have never been disappointed. Excellent food, location and atmosphere. But what makes it is the excellent service from the twins, Fontas and George. They treat everyone as a personal friend and are without equal.

We've been coming to Crete for over 20 years and to Dionysos for over 10 years. This is by far the best place to eat in Crete, one holiday we ate nowhere else. If you're lucky enough to stay in or near Agios Nikolaos you should absolutely go out of your way to visit here! The twins (George and Fontas)... More
