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

Situated amongst a line of restaurants facing the inner lake with an attractive view. Large menu Snacks , breakfast, salads ,omelettes, meza pizza,pasta,fish. Prices seem very reasonable, and portions sensible. The apple and whole avocado salad was appealing as a new choice. Moussaka, spaghetti bolognaise and club sandwich were tasty. Difficult to make then special. All fine, service good and... More

We had wonderful meals here; the fish particularly is well cooked and delicious. Meals are very attractively presented. Everyone is greeted as a valued customer and service is attentive but not intrusive. The brothers are very chatty and friendly and make your visit to their restaurant a memorable experience and one you want to repeat.

i have been coming to Agios Nickolaos for more than 30 years and to this beautiful restuarant certainly the last 15 or so. The welcome we have always received and the good food has always made us feel at home. I earn some of my living writing about the Greek islands, and am flattered to have been quoted in one... More

We visited from Elounda resort and the greeter was very persuasive. The location seemed good so we went in. We recieved a jug of wine and the waiters were attentive. The meal was reasonably good (8 of us). We were quite early and it filled up steadily as we ate. It appears a popular eating place and the kids are... More

The restaurant is on the edge of the lake near the bridge, quite a nice location if you can get a table at the front, otherwise you could be anywhere. The food on both occasions when we visited was average at best and my Moussaka on our second visit was very poor, dry & tasteless, needless to say we did... More

We ate here twice and the first thing that clinched it for me was the banter between the waiters and "greeter" The food was as good as the chat and my daughter was presented with free ice creams and lolly pops. On the first visit we were offered a free half bottle of wine, to help persude us to stop... More

I eat THE BEST spagetty- real one over there and my friends were satisfied with meat they were eating, one of the took Greek plate and he was delighted. Menu is excellent! Atmosphere is relaxing too-next to the lake, and service was very professional.Prices are normal. All recommendations!
