We had a late lunch here on a recommendation. the owner/waiter was great and the food was great. The mussels in wine and garlic were fresh and the lamb chops were seasoned just right. Even the spaghetti bolognese was up there. The value was normal for this area and the dessert tray (complimentary) was a nice touch.

We reached this restaurant few days before start of Season. So we had the whole place to ourselves. The service was great. The food was good. We enjoyed out mussels and house wine here. Would definitely recommend this place if you want to enjoy authentic Greek food. And it has free wifi too.......

We stopped in this place after reading on TripAdvisor and seeing that it was very busy so we assumed something good is going on here! We gave our order of fingerfoods mostly, small courses-dishes, at 14:00 and we start eating our salad at 15:00 (double... More

The picturesque town of Agios Nikolaos, Lassithi, is a delight to visit. The main tourist area is bounded on one side by a quaint lake type area and on the other lies the port and open sea and beach area. Trying to find a place to eat becomes a real chore with restaurant staff using every ploy to entice you... More

We've only been here for a drink whilst watching the sunset over the sea. Very reasonable for wine and would recommend the house carafes. Each drink is served with a selection of snacks. Great spot to people watch and put the world to rights!

Situated on the lively Kitroplateia Beach, Maistrali even has a few tables right on the beach. A typically Greek mezze taverna the menu is varied and delicious. Haloumi cheese and xorta ( wild greens) are a favourite as is the liver. The owner and staff are welcoming and friendly. We love it here, even in the winter months. Highly recommended.
