Family affair, great for fish

This restaurant is actually in Koutouloufari, rather than Hirsonissos and, as mentioned by others, is a real family affair. We only had time to eat here once but the service was very pleasant (lower key than in many places, but that isn’t a bad thing) and the food extremely good. Knowing where the... read more

This is a real family affair. Nikos, who the restaurant is called after, is actually a real fisherman and the only one of the family who does not work there. What he does do is supply the fish, and although there will be fish on the menu, the best fish to take would be the daily special which Nikos will... More

Had a lovely meal here. A family business where the mother does the cooking and the daughter serves. Sea bream was thoroughly enjoyed by my husband! Lots of traditional cooking plus tasty seafood.

An honest restaurant where quality and kindness goes hand in hand. I am a very picky, skilled home cooker and this place blow me away. Excellent cooking, tasty, fresh ingredients and fun atmosphere. I recommend it not only for fish lovers. Mama's traditional Cretan lamb speciality was just as great as the other fishy dishes.

Very friendly restaurant, the sea bass was to die for and so was the lamb cooked in the oven. The anchovies for a starter with the garlic bread was a nice touch as was the yogurt and honey !
