I have been to Agios Nikoloas 3 times now and I always come back to the Knossos taverna. They are all so friendly and welcoming and create a fantastic atmosphere. There is so much choice on the menu and everything is incredibly good value for money and quite honestly the best Greek food I've had on the Island of Crete. Even with visitng the other tavernas in the area, we still keep coming back to Knossos as the best out of all of them and recommend to all whether it be for couples, friends or families.

Unlike a lot of the other places in Agios Nikolaos this place doesn't need to try and entice you to come here, after speaking to the owner its been here for 39 years and the food is amazing, we stayed for 10 nights and ate here 3 of them ! The old man who owns the taverna is hilarious calling the women "the boss" and laying our my knives and forks very neatly befor jokingly just chucking my partners on the table, very near to ammoudi beach bar which is fantastic for an after drink
