We were persuaded to use this restaurant because we had moored our yacht on the quay and this restaurant was not only a few yards away but also had fantastic trip advisor ratings. It was, not to put too fine a point on it, utterly dreadful. I ordered moussaka. It was swimming in grease, was cold in the middle, warm... More

This is a very popular restaurant and booking is advised. Food is very good and the service is ok. It has a good atmosphere as it is normally very busy.They do very good spinach pies as a starter.

Great food, very nice stuff, quick serving, we tried shrimps and tuna pizza, both were great. Located on the Nidri Harbour, thus it has a great view.

We ate here twice on our week long stay in Nidri. The food is good (I recommend the sardines) and you get a lovely view of the harbour. Staff are very friendly and can't do enough for you. The free water, bread, drinks and icecream are all nice extras but even without these we would have enjoyed our meal.

Restaurant looked busy so thought it would be good. Food disappointing. Tzatsiki was the worst we have had, main course average and prices same as everywhere else. No little extras- coffee or a little dessert which other restaurants provide,(i.e the Apollon) so no where near such good value for money.

My friend and I went to The Barrel for by birthday, the menu is really varied and we decided to have a mixed grill for 2 and it was brilliant. We went another 2 times during our weeks holiday and had lovely meals both times. The waiter are very attentive and friendly. Excellent restaurant.

Thank Anne C
