Beautiful

A wonderful out door eating experience. The food was fabulous, always, we went there several times because we enjoyed so much. The staff, a mixture of Scottish and Greek, are wonderful, nothing was to much trouble. Would not hesitate to highly recommend to anyone.

We found the food fabulous, I had Stifado, delicious and my husband had a fish dish. Very friendly hosts, in fact we went back there a couple of nights later. Good menu and very different from all the other main restaurants who had the same, same menus. Very pretty outside dining - loved it

Such a shame because in all the years (since 1986) we have been going to Aghios Nikolaos we have NEVER experienced such poor service. It left a bitter taste it our mouths. We could not work out whether the two Scottish ladies just wanted Cretans and/ or Scotts for the celebration of 28 October NO day. They certainly did not... More

We loved our diner there. Especially at night, with all the lights on. Meals are Cretan dishes. Generous and full of flavour. This is a family business and all members are really nice.

Now this, in our opinion, should be the No 1 restaurant in Agios Nikolaos, the ambiance, the food, the service ,the setting, just visit I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

We stumbled across the embassy purely by mistake , we had decided to look for a typically Greek taverna in the back streets rather than the restaurants located all around the lake as we wanted to eat outside but under the stars away from all the bright and twinkly lights of AG Nik and we were not disappointed, it happened...

Had a late dinner The fish was about 450 gr. made on the grill and done proper . Had 1/2 li. white table greek wine that was ok and the salad was out of this world.Service was quick and the most important is that English is spoken well. Price for all was 18€ + service but worth it
