“First class food kept us coming back for more.”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

We first had breakfast here by chance as the taverna we were going to go to was not open yet, so we carried on walking and chanced by Knossos, and we are so glad we did. it was by far the best breakfast we had had in Ag Nik, and subsequently each day we were in town we had breakfast here. We also ate here twice in the evening too and were more than impressed with the meals then too. The Kleftico, and Souvlaki are delicious, and the deserts were just as good such as the yoghurt and baklava.
We will certainly be returning to this friendly family run taverna on our next trip to Crete.

“The best in Ag Nik”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

Family run, very friendly without being over the top. Good food and wine and great value. We kept going back as the others didn't seem to match.

“Another visit to this great taverna.”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

It's 2 years since we last visited this great taverna, the welcome, service and food are just as good (if not better) than they were then. I cannot understand why it is now so far down the ratings, it was then No 1, where it deserves to be now.
The welcome for customers old and new could not be warmer. The service cannot be faulted. The quality of the ingredients, many home grown, is superb. The cooking is second to none. Overall this must be one of the best and friendliest tavernas in town.
If you find yourself in Agios Nikolaos you must try this place.

“Back again :-)”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

Just returned from another holiday in Agios, and another wonderful meal in this friendly taverna. As usual the service was first class as was the food - a trip to Agios just wouldn't be the same without a visit to this taverna ..thank you again for a lovely evening, and see you in July.
