Niko's offers good authentic greek food. The grilled calamari are superb; the Bakaliaros Plaki is a wonderful light cod dish; the Arni Kabab is cooked nice and lean... and always get the side of lemon potatoes. My only complaint of Niko's is that it is not a place to dine. You eat and leave. If you dare to linger the... More

We were all in the mood for Greek food so I got on Trip Advisor to see what was in the area. So glad I read all the positive reviews. To look at it from the outside it doesn't appear to be anything special, just another storefront in an average strip mall. My husband had octopus appetizer, which he raved... More

I have eaten here several times and the food just keeps getting better. Nine of us had dinner and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meal. From a Greek salad, the most delicious meatballs in the world, gyros, stuffed flounder, shrimp and the Greek spaghetti, everything was outstanding (including the service). I would dine here everyday if I could; I love Niko's.

We were craving Greek food while at the beach, and this place hit the spot. The spicy feta and grape leaves were tasty and fresh appetizers. We had a broiled fish dish with octopus, calamari and shrimp, as well as a platter with fish, shrimp, and scallops in a tomato and pepper sauce over rice. Both were very good. We... More

After a day at the beach, we were looking for someplace nearby to eat. With 3 kids, 14 yr, 11 yr. & 4 yr., it's hard to find places that everyone likes. But we all found something on the menu. The portions were generous, the food was tasty, the service was quick, friendly and efficient and the prices were reasonable.... More

This place is fantastic. Totally unassuming in a little strip mall on Ocean Blvd. the inside is cute but not fancy (and not trying to be), and with large pictures of Santorini on the walls. I've been here four times and always leave stuffed and happy. The food is absolutely delicious. We usually start with some small dips and apps.... More

Because of the Saturday night parking situation and congestion at nearby Pier Village, we opted to eat Greek at Nikos, where there is a large parking lot. It was our first time there and we were impressed by the more extensive menu than what we were used to, especially the list of specials. As a plus, it is a BYO.... More

My wife and I enjoyed this restaurant very much. We had the spicy feta dip, it was a huge portion and delicious. I enjoyed the spanakopita was well done, very flavorful and large. The moussaka was well prepared and my wife loved the souvlaki Plato and we only regret not saving room for desert.

I ordered the octopus, fresh anchovies, whole roasted bronzino, all very fresh and and classically prepared. Also if you order whole fish you get the bones and all, I didn't mind because I'm super pro but my date had gripes about it. I also ordered the spanokopita and the flavor was good but seemed like they microwaved to heat up... More

Located in Ursula Plaza on Ocean Blvd.Many, it is worth your while to find this wonderful Greek restaurant. Food is fresh, delicious, made to order. The owners take pride in preparing the freshest food with the best ingredients.
