Restaurant details
Reviewed 6 October 2018

Service and food was that good that we visited 3 times in one week. Principal waiter Fortis was attentive, friendly and eager to communicate and not only practice his English but also help you with your Greek.
All food freshly cooked and locally sourced. If they had to use frozen foods these were clearly marked on the menu.
Chips or fried potatoes as they call them were fresh, no frozen rubbish.
Fish, in particular sardines were superb.
Meat and fish mezes' were that large a plate for one would easily satisfy 2 people.

A clean, efficient and friendly restaurant that should certainly not be overlooked. Fotis was simply phenomenal and very attentive to our needs. We visited the restaurant more than 3 times, and loved each visit. The restaurant features a wide array of traditional Greek dishes, as well as fresh seafood. The complementary fruit and Raki, served at the end of our meal, was heartily welcomed.

My family travelled to Crete in May. We stayed at a nearby 5 star hotel but opted not to take the full board as we like to try different restaurants. Although during the week we went to several restaurants in the area we always ended up back at the Nikiforos. Katerina greeted us warmly every day at either lunch or dinner. She remembered my 9 year old son Sebastian's name, his order and was so kind to accommodate him. All the staff were kind and not pushy. Great with menu suggestions. The meals here were great value for money, tasty and the atmosphere was very relaxed and comfortable. We always felt special with the great staff and we were able to relax and enjoy or meals and the great view. Patio everyday. Thanks to the staff, especially Katerina we will be back.

We ate 4 dofferent dishes, pasta, pizza, chicken and souvlaki.
Pasta and pizza was great, but The rest was only ok. French frites wasnt ready, raw inside...
The straff was nice and did a good jobb. Nice and clean. Sittning by the sea is of course a great view.
Think seafood is to prefer in this restaurant.
