“The best fish in the area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

Our first visit to Crete and we hit lucky with the weather (hotter than usual this time of year), the resort (St Nicolas Bay) and the restaurant we stumbled across just down the road from our hotel - Bokos. We ate there on three nights and there is no doubt we were served the freshest fish (and lobster) in the area.
Good value for money restaurant, well run and truly excellent food.

“Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

We loved everything about this restaurant. The staff were immensely friendly and we enjoyed ourselves so much that we made a return visit. The first time I at their grilled octopus - beautiful, the second time I had the veal chops. I can thoroughly reccomend both. I drank the house rose wine which was chilled beautifully and was nice and dry. This restaurant is also good value for money.

“We are definitely going back!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012 via mobile

Great restaurant placed above the road with a v.nice view and real atmosphere. The fish is amazing, enormouse, fresh and well cooked and presented. Similar price to the others on the strip but physically and qualitatively a cut above.
Recommend the Snapper and the swordfish, the former defiantly caught local. They show you before they cook and you can choose bigger or smaller.
Lamb dishes limited, also v.fresh, so you may want to order in advance.
