Not the traditional service. They embrace the food and at the end the people. Great Beef Fileet and if you behave they will love you. Will come back and visit. Loved it.

We had a lunch time drink here, liked it so much we booked for dinner the following evening. We were not disappointed. Great fresh fish, grilled on an open fire-grill. Warm welcome from family staff. Lamb, chicken and prawns all cooked, served and equally enjoyed by our fellow diners. Waters-edge location that altogether created a perfect ambiance for a special... More

This is a simple, but nice restaurant located on the seaside, offering an amazing view. The food is very fresh, authentic, genuine, and tasty. A great variety of Greek dishes is offered, both fish and meat based. Having had the chance to taste both, I can say that these are all great. Portions and abundant; dishes at the grill are... More

We were recommended this restaurant by a shop owner and it was pretty good. It is a little bit away from the main hustle and bustle of the lagoon area of Agios Nikolaos as it is situation on the edge of the beach over the other side of the town but is still only a 5-10 minute walk. They have... More

We boarded the bus from Stalis near Malia to complete the 45 minute journey to Agios Nikolas, just to eat at Faros. Why? Because we'd heard such great things about this restaurant from Greeks living on the island. Luckily, it didn't disappoint. So good was the food, we travelled here twice, making the most of the beautiful views, homestyle cooking... More

Superb food, our main platter was a red mullet extremely well grilled, and expertly deboned at your table by the chef.

This was the best of the restaurants we used over the course of a 6 night stay in Aghios Nikolaos. The owner and staff were very friendly, the food was good with options from the BBQ or choose your own fish from the fridge. Generous post meal cakes and raki. Worth the extra few euros it will cost when compared... More

This restaurant was just perfect. It has a very rustic charm. A beautiful wood burning grill and fresh fish that the chef shows you and advises on which is the best size, flavour and texture. The roasted vegetables that accompany the fish were just amazing, and the whole meal is cooked using the wood fire. I cannot think of a... More

A bit expensive for the taste, especially the wine, although of good quality. Too little vegetables. Service could be friendlier. Nevertheless we enjoyed our evening and the holy water.
