Title says it all. In al little calm street, don't expect a fancy place. But the food is tasty, and the price really low!

A well-known tavern to the locals, who eat there from noon. If you visit the tavern after 14:30 you won't find probably anything to eat!

Literally the best food we ate in agios nikolaos...we came back three times! Best dakos, friendly staff, great price. Authentic but off the beaten track! Better than any restaurant round the picturesque but over priced lake...eat your dinner here then have cocktails round the lake!
