The food was great lots of it and very tasty, helped... More

Absolutely amazing view of the sea with an endless and peaceful horizon. The stuffed zucchini flowers and the gemista (stuffed tomatoes and peppers with rice) were my favorites. Also liked the feta on the Greek salad. Tasty and soft. Just add a bit of olive oil (λάδι)... Enjoy! Oh, the fish was fresh too:)

Christos, Costa and Harry made us incredibly welcome in their atmospheric beachside taverna. This is the 3rd or 4th time we have stayed in Kato Zakros and the food in Nostos just gets better an better. A place of real quality.

Went there with my kids. After a very friendly welcome we tasted for starter the pita with cheese which was excellent (Nerati), a good mix of vegetables with cheese cooked in the oven (Bouyourdi) and a so-so crispy bread with tomatoes, feta and olive oil (Dakos). The main fishes were a little bit disappointing the fried calamaris were not good,... More

Good quality food and polite staff along with a good location right on the beach make this a solid choice. As with most similar establishments it tries to be a jack of all trades, offering a huge array of dishes but not really specializing in anything.

Very well prepared and tasty food. The Greek salad was excellent with ripe tomatoes full of flavor. The taziki was plentiful and well seasoned. We had the grilled anchovies and the were fresh and delicious having been fried to perfection. The kids had souvlaki and this was very nice indeed as well. The staff is very helpful and super nice.... More

We ate several times during our stay at Nostos, and we loved it each time. The staff are great (Harry - you are a star!), and the atmosphere is warm and welcoming. We really enjoyed the house specials (different recommendations each night) and, once the wind dropped and the boats could get out, the fish was fantastic. Will miss our... More
