We got there accidently, looking for other place, fortunately the other place was closed, so after checking the ranks on TripAdvisor, we decided to try this place and by all means it was a very good decision. The place, the food, al was very good. I had fish, which was good, but the best part was chicken fillet ordered for... More

The ambiance and staff make the place very welcoming. The food is very good and reasonably priced. We tried, on recommendation, a Sauvignon Blanc by Douloufakis Winery - outstanding! Also, whilst most tourists tend to eat here around 7-9 pm, the locals tend to come in after 10 pm. And the fact that they do makes a greater case for... More

Being half french, I discovered this little place with our famous Guide du Routard ! At thanks because it was so enjoyable. As soon as you arrive, the waiters are lovely, busy but pay attention. The cook does a real show while he prepares fish or meat (both excellent). Different from all the touristic restaurants beside the lake, so much... More

Ate here one night only as the avra is too much of a temptation! However, it is a good place to have a meal with friendly staff, nice food etc and i would encourage people to give it a go at least once.

We found this restaurant by accident and we were very impressed. Lovely food, relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere and good service. Located one street back from the busy lakeside, it really hit the mark with myself, my wife, son and daughter (13 and 11). Booked there and then for the next night even though we are staying about 15 min out... More

Been here several times on a couple of visits to Ag Nik. The food is lovely, the atmosphere is great and the hosts are superb. The Kleftiko is my favourite. Don't be seduced by all the lake restraunts... if you have one night in Ag Nik go to Embassy.

Tucked away in a quiet street by the taxi station just off from the bustle of the lake and harbour area this is such a gem! It was recommended by one of the staff in our hotel as somewhere the locals also like to go and we were not disappointed. The food is wonderfully Greek, tasty and plenty of it... More

A very attractive restaurant, situated just far enough away from the lake, near to the taxi station. The restaurant is very atmospheric surrounded by trees and foliage. The menu is quite extensive. The food is very good, fresh and well cooked. The service is very friendly and efficient. The prices are reasonable with good house wine on offer. At the... More
