We chose this restaurant as we wandered the streetsof Nafplio. It was nice to sit in the quaint streets but we were not really impressed with the food. It was quite average and not up to the delicious Greek dishes we were expecting.

The chicken souvlaki was good and great value for money. It was a great place to people watch. As we ate we realised that the 1986 was apt because we were had recently celebrated our wedding anniversary; we'd married in 1986.

We enjoyed grilled fish and rolled chicken with feta and bacon. Eggplant salad was bland. Great location on an attractive street of restaurants. Good service.

1986 is a quite good restaurant reg. servie and food. What I did not really like is its style ....It is another touristic restaurant. I 'd prefer to keep a local style something that would also be appreciated by foreign visitors too. Food is nice ,but nothing special. I have to admit that it is placed in one of the... More

we ate here regularly last year as we were happy and why should we not return this year. As ever great fresh food, very friendly service, always a little treat. My wife eats meat and is happy with her choices and I am over the moon as a vegetarian. What I like is lots of small dishes, which they are... More

We went here due to the recommendation that we received from our hotel. They told us that this restaurant is a bit more expensive than others but the quality is also higher. There is a terrace in the street, but it was too cold to be there in February. However the place is well decorated inside. When we arrived the... More

This is a really nice restaurant, very clean and cozy! There one can find any kind of food and taste even the local cuisine for the day specialties! We paid €16/ person and ate everything we wanted and drink a glass of wine too!

We chose Kakanarakis because it was close to our hotel and open early. The place is very charming and the staff are exceptional. We both had pasta dishes which, although served much too hot, were still tasty and satisfying. Along with exceptional, very inexpensive house wine we can't say anything negative as we enjoyed ourselves and were very satisfied with... More

My husband was lured in by the promise of rabbit stew, a daily special from the chalkboard in front of this restaurant. Unfortunately, the delicate flavor of the meat was overwhelmed by cinnamon -- a spice he doesn't particularly like. My eggplant salad was quite vinegary and featured more bell peppers than eggplant while the fried zucchini balls had a... More
