The ambiance is pleasant, by the sea, the staff is smiling and friendly, the prices are realistic and affordable, the food is delicous, the exterior design is cheerful and cute. Highly recommended. 😊 Fun fact, in Greece, it's customary for restaurants to offer a dessert...on the house, and sometimes even a raki, as a gesture of hospitality. 🍮More

The food here is top notch! Quality and quantity in abundance. On a recent trip to Crete this restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel front desk manager at the Nema Hotel and Spa. The drive was well worth it. We visited the town...for something to do and remembered the specific recommendation from the folks at Nema Hotel. We were smiling from ear to ear and my partner still talks about the food today, 1 week later. The dishes we had were well portioned and soooo delicious. I would recommend this place as the top restaurant in the area. It was filled with locals and tourists alike which says everything you need to know…if the locals eat here it must be doing something right. They even gave us a free desert that we could only eat half of because our bellies were so full. The location is perfect as it’s in the middle of town by the lake. The service is rapid, the staff are pleasant and happy to share recommendations with you. We were greeted by a man I believe to be the manger or owner who was curious how we knew about the restaurant. I’d suggest visiting just before lunchtime or after. We arrived just before lunchtime and already this was the busiest restaurant in town. By the time we had eaten and readying ourselves to leave, the restaurant was heaving with satisfied patrons of all ages and nationalities. Must visit!More

You simply can't miss this! Well located by the lake it offers a vast menu of excellent meat and fish dishes along with good vegetarian and pita/gyros options. The portions are hugely generous and it's frequented by the locals too, which is always a good...sign. Good prices as well.More

The food was good. Huge portions. But the whole impression was spoiled by the cashier girl. The bill was 54€. We gave the cashier 100€ and asked for 40€ change. The cashier came back with 30€ change and immediately run away to other guests leaving...us no chance to ask for explanation. 10€ not a big money but the evening was ruined.More

Not a pleasant experience. And they do not like criticism. When I initially complained about the awful food they served up to my wife and I they were all smiles about it but when I made it clear I was not going to join in...their smiles club and refused to pay for my meal which was garbage they joined ranks and turned into nasty bully boys. It became clear they were only interested in the money…not about satisfied customers as they claimed. About the food. My wife’s gyros arrived cold and with dry chicken. My pork schnitzel looked like a ball of cream / yellow gloop. The pork was gristly and the whole plate was just warm. How the waiter had the nerve to bring it to our table and present it like that I cannot understand but then if they are doing it all the time, then they become immune. One of the people I spoke to said he was the owner and his excuse for the meals being cold is that the food has to be brought across the road from the kitchen opposite. Hardly my problem eh? And I think you realise it now that bully boy tactics don’t work with me.More

The food was exceptional! Service was a little slow, but the quality of the food made up for that. Absolutely delicious gyros; best ever!

This has got to be one of the busiest restaurants in the town. It is actually two in one - a gyros place that is very popular with locals, and an upmarket restaurant. The food is wonderful! You order something that seems just the same...as anywhere else, but their chefs put their own unexpected spin on the plating or the ingredients. Really worth a visit. A major draw seems to be the unique way of serving meat. I don't care for meat too much, but certainly there were many tables enjoying a full spit on their table-top and tucking in with glee. The negatives are that solo travellers are not exactly welcomed, neither this year nor in previous years here. Pushed away behind a tree and hurried to eat and move on.More

Overall a good experience. We arrived earlier and it was quite busy but as the night went on the queue outside got longer and longer. We were served quickly and had food quickly. The portions were huge!

Amazing, traditional Greek restaurant in the center of Agio Nikola, next to the pond. We were looking for authentic Greek food besides the nearby tourist-focused Greek restaurants. Huge portions of delicious and authentic dishes with very reasonable prices! Fast and kind staff. Highly recommend, we...loved it and wonderful dessert- κέρασμα!More

Horrible experience. The owners are so greedy that they have people waiting in the queue and avoid to reply to the guests asking for the waiting time so that they do not leave for other restaurants nearby. We reserved a table by the water for...a special occasion a few days in advance only to get there and have to wait for over half an hour at the walk-in queue. Eventually our table by the water was given to other people from the walk-in queue and following several reminders that we had a reservation we were given a table right next to the road with a smelly and noisy ambience an hour later than our reservation. Totally unorganised and unprofessional. The food was very average, the staff was rude and as soon we finished our dinner they asked us to pay so that we free the table for the others still waiting in the queue. And that was in less than 45 minutes holding the table. This place is a mediocre mass-production restaurant. Avoid this restaurant if you seek a real authentic greek experience or you don’t want your night to be ruined.More
