Nikiforos – good Cretan seafood in Kolymbari

If you are looking for a restaurant serving fresh seafood in Kolymbari, Crete – look no further, Nikiforos is a good one!

Right next to one of our favourite restaurants in Kolymbari, Palio Arhontiko, you will find the Nikiforos fish taverna. It was recommended to us by Stelios, owner of a small gift shop nearby, for their fresh seafood. We checked it out a couple of times so far and have not been disappointed. Simple, freshly prepared seafood done well – nothing fancy here, but oooh sooo delicious.

A word of caution, don’t get the previously frozen stuff (clearly marked on the menu), order the fresh catches instead. I tried the inexpensive mixed seafood (which has previously frozen items in it) on our second visit and the fresh baby squids were waaaaay better.

Situated right on the seafront in Kolymbari, the setting and ambience of Nikiforos is also nice. Looking out onto the sea while dining with a bottle of Retsina wine for a couple of hours is, unlike me, something that never gets old.
