Delicious

Food is good and service is attentive. What else do you need? I asked them to pick something out for me that spoke of the Santorini. Somehow the choices were exactly what I was looking for. It all of course went great with a nice cold glass of assyrtiko.

If this restaurant is Traditional then good luck to those who enjoy it- we went with another couple for a meal. Everything is v average and has a dirty feel about it. Arrogant owner- Wouldn't go back as there are so many other places you can eat and enjoy the experience -

We like the restaurant because it is traditional in its decor and menu. The quality of the food was excellent, and the service likewise!

Nikolas is a little gem serving authentic and very well prepared Greek food in a proper taverna-like atmosphere. The seafood is fresh, the house wine is good, prices are reasonable and the host is friendly and engaging.

Came across this place when we weren't especially looking, and were impressed that instead of someone shillling out-front for customers, customers were crowding the narrow alley outside trying to get in. When were determined that the wait would likely only be 15 minutes or so we joined the group and were not dissappointed. Took the waiter's suggestions and had tremendous... More

Don't we put off by the grumpy reception from the owner (it's an act) he really warmed up,as did we, and we had a really enjoyable time with good traditional food. We drank the house wine which was very acceptable - the bill was very reasonable too. The owner turned out to be a very nice chap and we will... More

Wonderful food, home cooking at its best. We had moussaka and pasticchio along with some stuffed peppers and an eggplant appetizer. All was delicious!
