Definitely the best seafood rest in Vasiliki harbour. Large meals the octopus was our favourite and house wine is great. Great setting right on the water

We enjoyed a splendid selection of fresh fish dishes for lunch in a great location beside the harbour. Good spot to watch the world go by while tucking in to simple but fresh and well presented traditional food.

After a swim in the beautiful clear blue waters, we stopped to eat at Vagelaras. Beautiful and peaceful views, good service and delicious food. We had grilled octopus, mixed souvlaki, chips, Greek salad and tzatziki. The bread was the best I've had in all of Greece. Reasonably priced and highly recommend. (Very clean toilets too).

What a find! It's well worth walking to the end of the port to enjoy the magnificent view and the best meal (by far) we've had in Greece. The fish was fresh (we were invited inside to make our selection) and cooked to perfection. The rice and salad accompanied well. Even the house white wine was dry, cold, and delicious... More

We went to this restaurant as it displayed a trip advisor banner and the decor looked good. It has a nice position on the harbour front. It did not meet our expectations unfortunately. The food came out unnervingly quickly suggesting it wasn't fresh. Moussaka had clearly been heated up but was lukewarm. The prawn risotto was tasty but not many... More

Good food, but not excellent. Big portion of food and fresh seafood! But they use a lot of olive oil.
