“Friendly, fair prices, great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

This bar,nestled in the main square of Agios Nikolaos, was a real find. The beer is cold, the coffee is hot, the food - fast and unpretentious - is good quality. It manages to attract both tourists and locals (always a good sign) and the staff are very welcoming. The owners, Ioannis, who is himself local, and his stunning wife Sharon, who is English and was once a major figure on London's Daily Mirror, have made the Piccadilly into a real gem. There's plenty of competition, but in spite of that we found ourselves regularly calling in for morning coffee, and maybe a spot of breakfast, back again for late lunch and a cool drink in the afternoon sun, and after dinner we'd drop by for a nightcap. Sharon certainly knows how to keep the fun going and the customers happy. Crete is enjoying a resurgence of popularity, particularly with British visitors, and the people who run Bar Piccadilly are very good ambassadors for the island.

“Nice Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

We came across the Picadilly bar quite by accident. What a little gem. Can't remember the owners name but he was funny and Lorraine who served us was a gem. She was from England originally and now lives in Crete. Service excellent. A couple ordered ice cream off the menu but they had no melon. They went and bought one from the local greengrocer. Thats what I call service. If you get a chance pay this place a visit.

“Piccadilly bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013 via mobile

Great bar, friendly staff, relaxing and good prices, situated in the main square, sit and watch the world go by while you enjoy a cold beer and either hot or cold food, definitely a worthwhile visit if you are in Agios Nikolaos :)
