Have eaten here a couple of times, and note the Trip Advisor no. 1 position! However, on both occasions have been underwhelmed. Have to agree, all comments relating to location, friendly staff, good service etc etc are bang on .. but the food just did not impress on either occasion. In fact we only gave it a second chance based... More

My previous review of this excellent restaurant was accompanied by a ridiculous rating in which the position of marks was confused with the number of marks, I had meant the rating to be excellent. Profuse apologies for the mistake.

Two weeks in Agios Nikolias went to this restaurant 10 times. My partner and parents as well always fantastic food and service. Good value for money fab family run restaurant typically Greek. Always welcoming and obliging. Pizzas are the best I have ever eaten. The Asian night fab well worth a visit. You will not be disappointed.

Stunning location, waiter was extremely friendly. Only had a pizza but it was amazing. One side spicier than the other which we asked for. We will defiantly be back

Stopped off after walking from Stoupa. This is a lovely location overlooking the sea and the owner and his son are very friendly and chatty. On a hot day I enjoyed a delicious Green salad and a beer and would certainly have tried an evening meal here had I been in the vicinity.

What a find! Aristos is the host and he's so charming and friendly- went out of his way to look after us and help us have a great time, even lending us an underwater camera. Good food, super cheap prices, and a private diving platform by the terrace for after-lunch swimming. So much fun, and a perfect example of Greek... More

Fantastic little restaurant overlooking the bay at Agios N. Not only did we love the food but Aris showed us a good time - a trip out on the ringo & he even lent us his underwater camera to check out a sunken wreck nearby. Thoroughly recommend.

Had a great trip to Vezuvios. Lovely food, great snorkelling around the ship wreck and the diving board off the rocks completes the experience.

Ag. Nikolaos is a very small place to visit, a lot of people staying in nearby Stoupa walk along the new coastal path and have lunch there. Vezuvios is at the north end ot the harbour it is the one with the dining area that has a ladder into the sea so that you can take a dip. The owner... More

A taverna at the far left of the harbour that has it all: a deck right down on the waters edge where you can swim and have a swower!! Absolutely fabulous food from alexandra that cooks for the tavern the last 38 years!! Such a relaxing place that you can sit for hours there ! Private parking and playground for the children! Visitors can breath in the romantic atmosphere and smell the sea in this magic salty paradice! Traditional recipes will temp your palate and delight your senses! The best view you can get day and night in the area! Always nice temp because of its position that always gets fresh breeze !!
