Loved the iced frappes

When in town we made time to visit this charming cafe situated next to the lake in Ag Nik mainly for the frappes with ice cream.

we are yet again in Agios Nikolaos and chose to eat many times at La Casa even though we were half board at the Hermes Hotel. There is just no comparison to buffet mass produced food against food cooked to order...just for starters the food is hot! The portion sizes and presentation, in my opinion, are excellent. Maro, the owner... More

We were sightseeing and randomly stopped in this scenic restaurant next to the lake. It was, by far, the best meal we had in Greece. We had a Greek salad, which was soooo fresh, moussaka, gyro and fries, fried feta, and 2 Mythos beers. I would recommend this restaurant.

We wandered around the lake, checked a few tavernas and settled on La Casa. It was the only one I could see with a Trip Advisor poster visible, and the host pointed this out to us. We ordered (4 people) and waited a few minutes for drinks. 40 minutes later the starters arrived, which were polished off very quickly, then... More

The inner lake of Agios Nikolaos looks like one big tourist trap so we were insecure about which restaurant to choose. Via tripadvisor we found La Casa and decided to have our lunch there. The view is very nice and the service very friendly. We ordered a grilled Feta and Moussaka. The Waiter warned us that the Moussaka would take... More

We ate in this restaurant on a wet and cold afternoon. The homemade and very hot moussaka was very welcome comfort food! The lamb chops were also very good. The service was a bit slow but as there was not much to do in the rain it didn't really matter. The waiter worked hard and could communicate in many languages!

La Casa was very busy on a Sunday lunchtime, perhaps because it was one of the few restaurants in town that were open in mid-November. We joined a mixture of local families and tourists, some having snacks and some full meals. The excellent waiters seemed to be able to manage in English, French and German, as well as Greek and...

Fantastic location around the lake in Agios Nikolaos. The staff were very friendly and very accomodating. The food was excellent Greek traditional cuisine and good value for money. We felt most looked after and always made very welcome.

Nice restaurant. Food, wine, service, location and value all good but something holds me back from giving it 5 stars... Location is great- write on the lake in Agios and not a rip off tourist trap like some of the other establishments near by. Food was very good. We shared some mezze starters including taramasalata, calamari and a sharing platter... More

We enjoyed the ice cream but were not so keen on the meal in the evening, do lunch not dinner. The meal was bland and lacked flavour.
