Very nice location with awesome view to the see. The staff is very friendly and the food very tasty. The grilled squid and spaghetti dishes are very delicious. We styed at the Miramare Hotel which is just 2 Minutes walk away from Gargadoros Taverna and we were eating there 3 times. We definitely can recommend this Taverna.

We visitied this restaurant for lunch on a very hot day. There is a nice breeze on the terass and the view is nice to the beach and see and mountains behind the gulf. The lunchlist was quite short and by our understanding missin the traditional greece cuisine dishes, which we love and respect in Crete. So we odered salad... More

There where available only the half of dishes included in the menu. Only one fresh fish ( badly cooked). No taste with the rizzoto, we didn't eat it at all. And the bill was the double of what we had paid in other much more nicer places. Do not worth to go, as there are so many other Restaurants with... More

The service, food, view and atmosphere were amazing for our first night in Crete. After a very long day (really two days!) of travel from the US, we were tired and hungry and looking for a quick bite and our hotel sent us here. We were so lucky they were happy to seat us at 11PM, which we assume was... More

Excellent food, friendly staff and beautiful view to the sea! This was the first restaurant we tried as soon as we arrived to Crete. After two weeks we can say that it was also the best restaurant. Especially the seafood was excellent! Would recommend this taverna to everyone who will visit Agios Nikolaos!

Situated on Gargadoros Beach the views are stunning. The food is just as good too. It's a bit of a walk from the town of Agios Nikolaos but well worth the effort. Perfect for a romantic evening.

We came from nearby Daios Cove and had a great evening at this spot overlooking the sea. Kostas was a charming host and the 10 of us enjoyed the local fish and produce and a few own label digestifs. If you arrive early, there's a nice bar next door on the beach to enjoy an early aperitif. Super food and... More

Stayed in the Miramare Resort on half board but ate in here a few times. Good food at a reasonable price and the staff were always friendly. Lovely location opposite the small beach so great to just pop in for a cool drink after all that hard work sunbathing!

We were staying at the Ariadne beach hotel and this restaurant was just at the bottom of the entrance to the hotel and was brilliant. We ate here most days- beautiful food, amazing view and lovely attentive staff- have never been to a restaurant on holiday where we go back again and again - everything was fab-thank you!

Thank sinners
