Stumbled upon this gorgeous taverna off the beaten track. Amazing fresh salmon and best lamb in Agios Nikolaos!! Staff are so funny and attentive. And a bargain too - one of our cheapest meals. Definitely a must if on holiday here.

Have eaten here several times before and never been disappointed and this evening was no exception. The starters were excellent and the main course of Sea Bream was fresh and cooked to perfection, also the wine was very good,would always recommend this place.

What a find, just stumbled across this Place one night. Was very busy, but didn't have too wait very long. Food was delishious at a very reasonable price. Shame we only found it on our last night. We will be back for sure.

This is an atmospheric and friendly taverna located down a side street, a short stroll from the famous lake and harbourside. We ate in the shaded and colourful courtyard and enjoyed our fish-based dinner.
