We had dinner at this restaurant a few times when visiting Agios Nikolaos in the summer. And the food here was the best we had in Crete! The service was lovely and the atmosphere was so nice. Really hope we will return to Agios Nikolaos so we can eat here!

Was recommend by the Roof Bar in the port, what a top tip as this is a fantastic Resturant.

Our best meal in 4 days in Agio Nikolaos. The service was very helpful and prompt. The suggested wine was prefect with our seafood meal. Lots of locals dining here as well as tourists.
