Ate here on our first night and returned every night after. The owner was very friendly and not at all put out when I requested something not on the menu but ensured it was available for me the next evening. Happy to give me recipes for food I'd not had before and to recommend Greek wines to match our order,... More

Bokos was the nearest restaurant to the hotel we were staying in, so one night we decided to try it. You have to climb up a steep drive to get to the restaurant, but it is quite short. However, this means you get a good view over the bay and the road leading up to the harbour. The menu had... More

We have been going to this restaurant for a good number of years and have never felt let down by the establishment. It is a family run restaurant where the most delicious food is cooked on site - the liver is the one dish particularly that has us returning time after time after time, although we have many other dishes...

Super restaurant, extremely friendly staff, relaxing atmosphere and delicious food. There was so much food it just kept coming and of a great quality. Over looking the sea even in the evening there was great views.

Ate here last night, and cannot praise this restaurant highly enough. It is in a great location with lovely views over the bay. The staff were friendly, attentive and helpful. The food and wine were excellent, and very reasonably priced. Lots of little unexpected extras were provided 'on the house', including pitta and dips and a delicious dessert. Altogether a... More

WOW - this place is GOOD!! We wanted to spend the last night of our honeymoon in a traditional Greek taverna and we really weren't disappointed. The food was absolutely wonderful, the view spectacular and the service brilliant. Highly recommended - and DO not leave without trying the home made pitta bread and dips!

This restaurant is just down the road from our Hotel, about 10 mins walk on the Elounda road on the edge of the Town overlooking the Ammoudi beach. We found the Restaurant last year and went back twice this year. The waiter remembered us too. The food on offer is very good and the prices are very reasonable. The quality... More

Our first ever meal in Ag Nik was at the Bokos after arriving at our nearby hotel around midnight around 6 years ago. We enjoyed it then and always call back each time we visit.
