We came here for the first night of our holiday and we were not disappointed. Lovely setting and atmosphere, attentive waiters and great value for money. I had octopus to start which was one of the best octopus dishes I have ever had and the chips with my main were delicious! Lovely wine and even brought us watermelon and grapes... More

Excellent food served by an excellent host. Generally involves copious amounts of raki also which your host likes to participate.

Don't eat fish anywhere else, they are the best. Try the squid or my favourite, the octopus its to die for, grilled by the way. We were lucky this year and had Sambuka a seasonal fish, wow it was amazing (I probably spelt that incorrectly, sorry, similar to the drink) the team are very good.....family run business, mum does the...

We go to Elounda a lot and this has to be the top of our list, the food is fantastic as is the service, real Greek experience, rickety chairs are a bit uncomfortable but so what the food is well worth it......this is a MUST on anyone's list.

Came to Elounda in 2014. Having tried various other restaurants we found Nikos to be our favourite. It has a good family atmosphere and is also family run. We never had a disappointing meal, although it will never be Michelin star the food was always good, freshly cooked and to a high standard

We ate here quite late one evening at around 10.30pm, the place was full and remained so until we left at around 12.15. It was mostly locals so we hoped we were on to a good thing, wee were not disappointed. We ordered the fish platter for 2. Is contained around 8 different seafoods and fish and all were excellent....

After reading previous reviews I was expecting some seriously good seafood, however it wasn't. The crab starter was just crab sticks and Marie Rose sauce and the fish main course was so heavily drenched in lemon I could taste nothing else. Hopefully this is just a blip though, I heard elsewhere the usual chef was ill, fingers crossed they get... More

We had the Gorgeous grilled prawns for 2, fresh and soooo tasty. Was worth the price! Was busy and lots of atmosphere, lovely staff. Lovely complementary starter- stewed vegetable type thing with croutons and bread, and melon and watermelon given after wards.

This is by far the best seafood tavern I've ever visited. Fresh fish is caught daily, oysters, prawns, mussels all delicious. Food not only limited to seafood, as they serve meat and grill dishes also. Restaurant is very hospitable and the raki is always freely flowing. If you are in Elounda, this is the restaurant to visit first!!
