Recommended by our rep and we had a great meal. Fish is wonderfully fresh and charcoal grilled to perfection and the lamb chops were very tasty. Great appetisers including sardines and saganaki and the bottle of Rasputin recommended by a very knowledgable waiter was on...par with a great Brunello. We are going back again soon.More

This is pretty much a standard harbour front taverna serving all the usual favourites. However, it has a certain appeal as reflected in the previous reviews and when we visited towards the end of the season it was the only taverna on Nidri's busy harbour...frontage to be close to full. We found the service very efficient - bottle of 'house' still water on arrival, slick ordering by the friendly waiters using tablets, prompt delivery of the food and pretty good quality it was too. So overall pretty good value.More
