We were particularly hungry and had ordered about 5 main courses and 2 soft drinks. To our amazement the total bill was 22 Euros!!!! This place serves decent, honest, Greek cuisine at it's best...

Found this local restaurant quite late in the evening whilst walking around, they always say that eating where the locals eat is the best place to go. They weren't wrong this time either, only another couple sitting outside and when we approached the nice young lady about food, she was exceedingly honest with us and said that she closes in...

Title says it all. In al little calm street, don't expect a fancy place. But the food is tasty, and the price really low!

A well-known tavern to the locals, who eat there from noon. If you visit the tavern after 14:30 you won't find probably anything to eat!

Literally the best food we ate in agios nikolaos...we came back three times! Best dakos, friendly staff, great price. Authentic but off the beaten track! Better than any restaurant round the picturesque but over priced lake...eat your dinner here then have cocktails round the lake!

Found this taverna a few years ago and now make a point of returning every year when we stay at Kavos Bay, Elunda. If you want home made traditional Greek food with no frills but tasting sooo good then this is the place. The locals use this place every day, wish I was local!

Found this tucked away in a side street, just what we were looking for, a traditional family run taverna serving non 'tourist' food. Although the menu is limited the food was excellent, the moussaka was lovely and the briam tasty. The waitress was very friendly and happy to explain what was available. Very good prices and a pleasant atmosphere.
