A unique restaurant

A colorful, nice garden restaurant in Agios Nikolaos. I ate mussels with cream sauce which was very good. You can find unique dishes on the menu.

My favourite restaurant in Agios Nikolaos. Beautiful food, great customer service, and a lovely setting. Geared to tourists in the sense that they are interested in their customers, and make you feel very welcome.

Travelling with friends who'd been to the Cretian Embassy several times, we were really excited to go.The restaurant looked lovely, we'd been warned there were lots of mosquitoes so we're covered in repellant but still felt uncomfortable. The waiter was very friendly, the starters weren't anything special but when the mains came, my moussaka wasn't very nice after expecting great... More

Delicious authentic Greek cuisine, wonderful atmosphere and lovely friendly staff. This beautiful family owned resteraunt is hidden away, but definitely worth looking for. The live Cretan music nights give a real taste of Crete. Our favourite restaurant in Agios Nikolaos, we'll definitely be back there in September.

We found this lovely small restaurant by the port of Agios Nikolaos and fell in love with it. There is a large choice of mezze, traditional greek and grilled dishes . Andreas and the other staff are attentive and friendly and made us feel at home with our dachshund too :) The ambience, music choice and the decor are great.... More

I was walking around agios nikolaos starving and indecisive as there were so many restaurants to choose from. I took a turn down a side street and came across the embassy and decided to just eat there because I was tired of walking around. Best decision I could have made! The food was great and had great staff to match.... More

One of the little gem family run restaurant in Ag-Nick. Just off the alley way by the town tax rank. Lovely outdoor setting, BBQ spit grill on site to cook seafood and meat. Very Greek feel. Foods were great, very personal service. Prices were reasonable. Seafoods was a little high on price but isn't it anywhere in the Med? Never... More
