Reviewed 4 December 2017

An overnight stop in Frikes for our yacht's crew of five and we were so pleased to stumble across Ageri. Recognisably Greek cuisine but with additional touches and tastes we'd never experienced before. The very friendly owner, whose English was superb, really seemed to enjoy taking us through his menu and his wine list. The establishment prides itself on sourcing local/regional and organic produce. It was very near end of season, so we were offered a generous discount on wine - which was in any case very reasonably priced.
We all enjoyed a simply brilliant dinner. Who'd have thought (well we didn't, until we sampled it) that a beetroot salad starter could be so exquisitely tasty? Anyway, it was. Another starter of sautéed mushrooms in wine could easily have come out of a Michelin starred kitchen. I had a beautifully cooked seafood linguini, and every one of my shipmates loved their meat- and fish-based main courses.
Delightful setting directly on the quayside enhanced the overall experience. We concluded at the end of our very own 'Ionian Mission' that this was by a distance the best meal we'd had - praise indeed because we also had very good dinners on four other islands.
I'd make a beeline for this place if I ever find myself in Frikes again.
Almost certainly because it was at the back end of the season, we had no difficulty booking a table at short notice here. I'd guess that in high season it might be prudent to call or email ahead to make a booking. A restaurant of this quality must surely be in high demand in high season.
Absolutely fantastic experience here, and all the best to the owner and team for the future!
Final point I'd make is that given the quality of the dining here, it's also excellent value for money.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review, especially since, given the season, you were evidently reminiscing about your yacht trip. We are flattered to have one of our dishes considered Michelin starred material. It always gives the staff a great sense of satisfaction when their efforts are appreciated and your enthusiastic review has definitely had this effect. We hope that you manage to come again next season. As you say, you'll make a beeline for Ageri when you come to Frikes again. Be sure to try new things you'll find on the menu - we'd love to have more feedback from you.

Stumbled across this restaurant whilst on holiday in Ithaca and loved it so much we ate there 3 times! Absolutely wonderful food, great quality and generous portions. The restaurant is ran by a very friendly gentleman who does a great job ensuring you are happy with everything, recommending dishes and going through the menu with you. We absolutely loved our holiday in Ithaca which was made that little bit better by this gem of a restaurant. Looking forward to returning to Ithaca and Ageri!

We went to this restaurant on a cloudy day's tour of Ithaca. It was very quiet but the view is great from the tables and the Greek Salad was probably the best I had that week!
The service was good and so was the ladies loo!

The most delicious "first" courses ever. Staff charming. It was the quiet time after the busy summer season (mid-September) but they showed no sign of tiredness. It's a lovely setting on the harbour and we'd love to go back.

A lovely lunch by the harbour, not so cheap but good food. Service a bit slow. We had a very nice mixed salad and some chips. Our neighbours' food looked amazing but we weren't all that hungry.

We are very pleased that you enjoyed your lunch with us. Hopefully, on your next visit, you'll be hungrier and so will try some of the amazing looking food your neighbours had.
