This garden taverna lies a couple of hundred meters up the road from the lake. The setting and the menu are very traditional. This is where the locals come to eat, socialise and watch TV. We had a very satisfying meal of beetroots and gigantes beans as starters, followed by Bekri-Meze and Moussaka for mains. We washed this down with... More

Quiet and friendly taverna whose owner knows the owner of the Golden Apartments and therefore was keen to make sure we had a good meal.

We went yo the Aouas taverna 3 times, it serves local Greek food at very cheap prices,it is only a few minutes walk from the normal tourist trap near the lake. It is well worth the time to give it a try. Normal meal for 2 with starters, main course, wine etched about 30€

Bad service, the guy was more interested in TV with friends...Food way beneath medium, the price was not. Nothing extra before or after, like for example a little raki....They have to do better to keep up a certain reputation!

Good location, nice seating, got the feeling that the people who run it during high season had all left, and got some random guy in to keep it ticking over during the low season. Could be wrong! not many people about, just their family and friends watching TV with what looked like his wife in the kitchen. Food was OK.

Nice traditional taverna, seating outside - do get a few road fumes - but nice setting, lovely Greek meal - nice house wine - just up the main road and slightly out of town, but worth a visit

This little family taverna in the town of Agios Nikolaos seemed a bit off the tourist track, so all the better. We were rather early for lunch by Greek standards, but there didn’t seem to be a problem. A covered courtyard with trees and shrubs and electric fans provided very pleasant surroundings for a simple and inexpensive lunch of a... More
