Fresh seafood right on the water!! Delicious meal! The service was excellent as well, the owner even had a celebratory drink with us!

Generally in Greece one should avoid restaurants that actively try to reel you in. This was a very pleasant exception: great location and ambience (for once no endless Syrtaki loop playing), great service with good recommendations, and excellent seafood at reasonable prices.

Two weeks in Crete. Above title says it all. It wasn't bad, it just wasn't good and not worth the price. The service was good though - not good enough to justify the price. Amazing views.

We were "reeled" into the restaurant on our first night in Plaka. We were seated at a table by the water. The view across to Spinalonga Island and the small harbour made the location perfect. The waiters made us feel very welcome and were very...More

We loved our dinner at Captain Nicola Fish Tavern. We’re learning that the portion sizes in Greece are generous. For dinner for two we split the baked feta and then ordered the starter portions of the octopus, grilled calamari, and prawns. That was more than...More
