This is one of the rare place where you can actually find good real food with local hospitality. I was sent there by a local, although probably many tourist dine here yet you can find also locals. I will miss this place.

Didn't get a chance to sit down. The owner was so rude about the seating of our kids that we left. I have heard the food is good but couldn't get past the rudeness of the management.

We were on Santorini for 5 days. I think we ate there 4 times. Everything we tried was wonderful. Try the cuttlefish with wine. Very very tasty. I ordered that the first time, and the server was like, "are you sure, have you ever had cuttlefish?" (I had). Most tourists I think stick to things like chicken souvlaki. I also... More

The food was so so, the decor is standard tat and the service - headed by the owner is rubbish, the service we got was okay but owner arguing with a customer about delivering food to a table when it wasn't ordered by the diners? Then demanding he be paid for food none ordered, sounds a wee bit like a... More

We attempted to eat at this restaurant and the owner/manager was very rude and unwelcoming. The restaurant closed 45 mins. later than arrival, but he rudely said that he would not seat us. He could have used more polite manners. This was our only poor customer service during our stay in Fira. We highly recommend the customer service and traditional... More

Our hotel recommended Nikolas to us for lunch. It was ok, nothing special. We each had a chicken souvlaki, which was just what you'd expect from Santorini. I ate at several much nicer tavernas over the course of our week in Fira.

We were recommended this place for lunch by a Greek friend when we visited Fira (we were staying in Kamari). It is a typical small indoor taverna. We found the staff friendly and helpful and the lunch - chicken souvlaki and a Greek salad - delicious. The service was good and the price very reasonable. Would go again.

Delicious, genuine Greek food, great value, lovely staff. Tables constantly turning over. Food amazing. White aubergine a must.

Thank you Nikolas, George, Damon and Babis for your hospitality and wonderful meals at Nikolas this year! We ate here four times in 5 days and our only regret is that we weren't here long enough to try everything on the menu. We really enjoyed the dishes we tried and it's definitely worth lining up for. Even though many tourists... More

We found this restaurant by accident. We'd been to Salt and Pepper which was fully booked and after making a reservation we asked where the proprietor recommends. She has no hesitation in suggesting Nikolas as the restaurant that the locals visit. We got lucky and secured a table and we not disappointed. Nikolas serves traditional Greek food in a very... More
