This restaurant is at the touristy center of Agios Nikolaos, right on the lakeside. It was therefore a pleasant surprise to discover its very fair prices (4-5 Euros for starters, 8-12 Euros for most main courses). The service was attentive and effective, and the food was delicious and as described in the menu.

Really worth every cent!!! I had the lamb chops which was outstanding! My wife had the mousaka and as she finished she wished she could order it again. Great value for money.

A nice average restaurant... the place on the lake is great but we were sitting there for quite a long time because the service was kind of slow. The food we got was fine but not so special - easy ordinary dishes.

In wandering round there seemed a lot of fast food type restaurants. It was great to find this, it was just what we wanted. Nice wine list( all Greek but good selection) . We had some wonderful Fava ( a bit like hot pease pudding but liquid enough to be like hummus made of split peas and olive oil) and... More

Second trip to agios nikolaos this year and la casa is my favourite place to eat. Maro the proprietor and chef really understands my food intolerance and will accommodate my dietary requirements. Nikos and Yannis are very welcoming and friendly and speak great English and can explain menus. Best on the lake and not to be missed if you want... More

We have been returning to Crete regularly for the last six years and while not staying in Agios Nikolaos have always tried to visit as it is a vibrant town with a great selection of shops plus good restaurants. If you find the lake rather than the harbour you will find La Casa. The restaurant looks directly across the very... More

Me and my wife visited Agios Nicolaos for a day trip and a lunch, and La Casa was recommended from another cafe. We had club sandwich and was disappointed; wth such a nice location and friendly services the basis is so well for a success. The manager should take the opportunity and see to that the kitchen delivers on a... More
