The breakfast we had was nothing special and probably the highest we paid so far for the same things pretty much we take every day.

For two years this little place was our favourite hangout in the daytime, playing back gammon, chess etc. The food is as good as any of the restaurants here and the menu is endless! They have a huge selection of fresh juices, milkshakes, snacks, omelets, crepes and full dinner menu with lots and lots to choose from. And the guys... More

This place is a treasure. When we first arrived on the island, as it is in the first main square, we just walked by it the first night or two. But I kept smelling this amazing scent of wood fire and coals, and it quickly dawned on me that while many places on the island were cooking on an open... More

My family discovered Folegandros 8 years ago and have returned 5 times because of the simple, incredible beauty and light of the island, the kindness and warmth of the people and the safety for our children...and the food of Nico's Taverna! The best breakfasts, cappuccinos, pastas and salads and the best of all Greek fare! Nico and Vassilis are the... More

Have been coming to this same Taverna since 1988. I believe it's been here since 1986. Trust me there was zero tourist infrastructure back then and he's been here serving up great food and fun for all these many years. We return year after year as do many people we've met here from different countries (France, Italy, Netherlands, Germany and... More

If you want a colourful blend of good service, an overwhelming menu, great drinks, misogynistic banter and a guide to the parts of Folegandros that you don't see on the postcards then this is the place for you. The best part of this restaurant is that Nicolas (the friendly owner), has literally thought of everything to avoid the usual pitfalls... More

A large group of us were in Folegandros for a wedding and ate at Nicolas everyday we were on the island. We had food at other places, only due to the wedding plan, but Nicolas food and service was always better. Their Pork Gyro Pita was the best I had all trip, and was made even better by the substitution... More

I have been going to this restaurant since I was four years old. When I first tasted Nicolas' pasta, I fell in love. I have returned to Folegandros five times since and eat nearly all of my meals there. The service is friendly, kids are entertained by the fun toys at the restaurant, and the food is impeccable. I rate... More

We travel the world. It's our obsession...every continent except Antarctica and THIS taverna on THIS island in the middle of the Aegean is sui generis. Why? The owner Nicolas and his right hand man Vassilis. We honestly have asked ourselves...would we return to Folegandros EVERY year (like we have for the past quarter century) if Nicolas folded his tent?
