Great grilled fish, along with a harbor view

Nafplio was our first stop on a Greek/Turkey cruise so we really didn't know what to expect when looking for a lunch time restaurant. We were quite happy with Arapakos and thought the grilled fish and potato dishes were very good and plentiful. Plus, we had a wonderful view of the harbor. BTW... read more

This is our second time visiting and we were not disappointed. The first time stopped in without any knowledge of the place. This time the hotel made a recommendation. We did not realize at the time it was the same place. The snapper with vegetables and the salad were fresh and delicious. We ordered lattes afterwards and they were some... More

Finding good vegetarian food is hard, but here please try the Linguine with Mixed Vegetables and Greek Salad. I ate here a few times while in Nafplio with a non-vegetarian friend...we both loved the food and the staff was always friendly!

We came to this restaurant for a late lunch. It was quiet and we had a seat outside under the tent. Service was ultra friendly and the server was very helpful. We had shrimps, fried cuttle fish, fried anchovies and a salad. Food was great. The shrimp was cooked greek style in cheese and tomato and was really delicious. Price... More

Dimitris and Costas, two brothers who were working the day we had diner in this family owned restaurant on the waterfront, were so nice. My wife and I had the chopped Greek salad, moussaka, grilled octopus (half portion), and grilled squid, all with a fine Bottle of chilled rose from Namea. It was a delicious dinner in an elegant outdoor... More

We were looking to eat a nice fishfood platter and were talked into this restaurant with the promise of a variety of fish that would be more filling than a real meal. Total lie. It was literally the size of a starter and nowhere near filling for 2. Avoid at all cost in my opinion.

Our hotel in Nafplion recommended two possible fish restaurants on the promenade. We were looking for one particular kind of fish, called Synagrida which I consider the queen of fish for charcoal grill. We knew that this was to be a relatively expensive affair. We visited the first and although they offered excellent quality fish they did not have this... More

We normally steer clear of restaurants on the seafront as they can be very touristy but we were pleasantly surprised with this one. We wanted fresh fish and we were taken into the kitchen to see their chilled drawers of fresh fish so we could chose one - he weighed it in front of us & quoted a price (plus... More

Any restaurant that can make tasty octopus has to be good. Here they were great. The fish main course was also cooked to perfection. Service was efficient and friendly.

Good food, helpful and gentile staff, but portions are small and the prices quite expensive. It is one of the very touristic restaurants of Nafplio that yo can visit it, but there are also other much better.
