We found a few restaurants that we really enjoyed in Agios Nikolaos but this was our favourite and we visited three times over our 2 week stay. Each time we had something different but always delicious - the fresh fish available changed every time (I guess what looked best in the market) we had tuna, amberjack, red snapper and sea bream at various times which were all fantastic. The starters/mezze were great - if you go there you must have the courgette balls! We drank the local wine by the carafe which was cheap and perfectly acceptable - Greece isn't known for its fine wine anyway so why pay more? We were made to feel very welcome and were well looked after with everyone being very chatty and friendly. I would recommend to anyone in the area - also, as other reviewers have mentioned, the location is great.

A great place for fresh fish, a bit hard to walk there - but the sea view is the best. Nice fresh fish, if a bit expensive.

We loved the setting of this restaurant in a quieter area of Ag.Nik. just opposite a small beach. The seafood here is great. We had a plate of mixed shellfish which was unique during our two week travels. It was simply prepared and just wonderful. We also shared the Octopus Stifado which was delicious. Service was incredibly friendly and helpful. We certainly would return!

If you love the freshest sardines and the sweetest Greek salad; if you enjoy watching the moon glint on the water as you sip the local (extremely acceptable) white wine; if it takes a lot of the above to really upset you then go to Gargadoros. In every way it's what you imagine good to be by the sea....

After several evenings with meal in Agios Nikolaos (expensive but not something "extra" and little boring food) we took our last night near our hotel Miramare. A simple taverna with a lot of greek guests, of course they have good food! We have a lovely dinner there, a special version of Giovetsi with shrimps and mussels. WOOOW, can absolute recommended that dishes! And a lovely staff who check up us all the time. We will come back next time in Agios Nikolaos!
