Walked past this restaurant many times during our stay in Agios and decided on our last night to give it a try. Wished we had gone earlier in the week but then so many restaurants to choose from you have to give others a try as well. Surfice to say the food (especially the charcoal grilled) was excellent, service was... More

Loved the charcoal barbecued food. We ordered spinach in filo pastry parcels and BBQ squid as starters. The squid was from the main course menu and we couldn't have made ourselves clear as it still came as a main portion and price! The spinach was a huge amount too. Mains were freshly cooked bream and a lovely chefs special lamb... More

We went here for our Wedding Anniversary & had a lovely meal,the staff were very helpful & attentive,views of the lake were spectacular & the only negative was there were groups of cats hanging around the guests tables,unsure whether they were wild or belonged to the restaurants!

Came here on the first night of my stay in Agios Nikolaos - my local friend ok me here for some seafood. Goodness me I love the smell of the BBQ and when the chef showed me what's fresh in the fish fridge container recommending this and that, weighing the seafood, and simply BBQ. So fresh and juicy I don't... More

We stopped here for some lunch and we are pleased we did. Complimentary bread before we ordered. I ordered chicken souvlaki and my partner ordered lamb souvlaki. Both were cooked to perfection on the open grill. Juicy but with the taste of a char from the wood grill. The tzatziki was also beautifully thick and yummy! Good efficient service and... More

This restaurant was recommended by staff at our hotel otherwise we probably would not have chosen it for a meal, it looks more of a place to just stop for a drink. But I am so glad we went as the food was excellent! Great service and amazing good value. Nice to sit and eat with so many locals too.... More

We had a table right at the front over looking the sea, we ordered some mixed seafood pasta, wow when it arrived it was full of seafood , more than I've had in other places, they certainly don't scrimp on the seafood , If you want a super tasty lunch make sure you come here.
