We are vegetarians... this can be fun in a taverna. We were very hungry and ordered a range of dishes and drank a house white wine. The wine was lovely, crisp and minerally as a Cretian white wine should be, the pastry parcels of spinach were good too. We also enjoyed the courgette 'balls' but the sliced aubergine was very...

We ate there several times when staying in the Mirabello, Ag Nic. Nothing pretentious, just honest home-cooked Cretan food. We enjoyed possibly the strongest tzatsiki we've ever had. Local wine very drinkable compared with other places we tried. Service is excellent and friendly with all family members involved and their new Beagle pup is very entertaining. The seaview from the... More

This is a good place to eat and the staff are very accommodating. It serves good basic Greek dishes - nothing fancy but certainly very tasty. We first visited Olga's last year and so we knew exactly what we were going to get. We all thoroughly enjoyed the total dining experience and left satisfied.

We ate at Olga's on several occasions, the food is wonderful and the best view around Agios Nic. We tried quite a few different restaurants around the area but being in walking distance of where we were staying, Mirabella Appartments, good value for money, lovely food and a fantastic view across the bay. Can't recommend it enough!

Unpretentious Greek Taverna offering good inexpensive food and service. We were welcomed by this generous family and enjoyed their hospitality. Would certainly recommend. Only downside on the main road as are many others

We had our first night meal here as this was very close to the mirabella apartments. Stuffed vine leaves, tatziki, pitta bread, baked cheese mushrooms, stuffed pepper, stifado, finished off with melons. Fantastic food never disappointed. We use this also for lunch as it is opposite the beach. Great views across the bay. The owners are really nice people and... More

Had a drink here on our first night and decided we would return for a meal as we asked people leaving the restaurant about the food - we only got favourable comments. Also this is the closest restaurant to the Mirabella Apartments. The place itself is just a basic Taverna/Restaurant but the staff are very friendly and the food was... More
