First of all due to its good location this restaurant is overpriced, the waiter and in my opinion also the owner was nice, but was talking over the phone all the time and I had to catch his attention to say order something.

You must try the garlic bread and the greek salad - for us it was a surprise of good taste. We recommend the fresh fish and the oven cooked shrimps. The people are very nice and they understood English.

Best thing here is the nice, friendly waiter. And the view. The food is fine, though we didn't feel good enough to return.

Been to Nikos several times for lunch. He's very helpful, with lovely fish and seafood dishes. Also reasonable prices for Sfakia. Lovely views over the sea.

We trids here because of the reviews, and while it was not disappointing, it is still not as genuine and authentic as the Lefka Ori just along the quayside. However, you won't be disappointed, the food is good, and so is the service.

Family run taverna with delicious food and super friendly. Highly recommend it! Ate there at least three times - lunch and dinner - during the Easter holiday.
