“Truly Amazing!!”

The best fish tavern for me until now. Excellent food, fish and service. Cheap prices, amazing view of the sunset and calm atmosphere. I will visit again when i will be in Crete next time.

“One of the best places to eat in Crete,Delicious, authentic food and whole-heartedly prepared and served.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2014

We have spent 21 day in the area and found this place by an accident. It’s away from main thoroughfare of restaurants in Falasarna. We followed local families that know the place well and it was the best restaurant we tried here. Although, both of us are not easy to satisfy when it comes to the food we fall in love with the restaurant and came back here every evening for the last 18 days. If you make your way here I recommend first trying Moussaka, I have tested this dish in Balkans and all over Crete, so far the Capitan Nikolas’ one is a winner. Other local dishes will satisfy a range of the tastes: one has to try tsykini flowers, village sausages and the Greek salad was the best we tried around, it had local herbs and I haven’t seen it anywhere else.
Well known by locals, there not many tourists here, but it should be on the local must visit map because of the food, friendly service and the remarkable location, little fishing harbour and the restaurant’ ground touches the sea.
Well worth travel and the costs were for locals, not for tourists so very affordable for any budget :D.

“Authentic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2014

Restaurant by the marina some way from the main area of Falassarna. We went for dinner and the place was full of locals including 2 large tables. A good sign in any restaurant. They were very busy but the staff ensured there was no undue waiting for drinks of food. The fish was excellent

“Great fish!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2014

We came upon this taverna on a trip to the beach at Falassarna. It is a tranquil spot right by the sea next to a small fishing harbour. The owner took us into the kitchen to show us the fish freshly caught by her sons that morning. We had a sea bass and it was fantastic - perfectly grilled.

“Our last meal in Falassarna ...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2014

... and it was excellent! The food is well cooked and fresh! We ate a lot of shellfish like shrimps, clams and other things that I don't know the english name (but very good), some greek salads, octopus, squids and everything was very good. It looked a restaurant managed by a family, very relaxed, but with good service and not expensive. We enjoyed our dinner at the balcony very much! Thank you!
