Not your typical Fira tourist trap restaurant . Outstanding Greek food in a very small, simple restaurant . Great service, great food.

I honestly doubt this little gem has changed for centuries. On one of the back streets, this place has a great atmosphere with a hum of people eating, drinking and generally enjoying themselves. Food is honest and traditional. Whilst a few of the dishes may not look much, they taste amazing. Also some dishes look small when they arrive, however... More

Ate here 3 years ago and on my return I just HAD to visit Nikolas again. It is nice to see that nothing has changed, great food, service and hospitality. If you visit Fira, this restaurant is a MUST. Not hard to find...just look for the only restaurant with a queue of people outside its doors.

My friend and I enjoyed a fabulous meal here one of our evenings in Fira. The food is so authentic and the staff are welcoming and polite. Much more authentic than some of the restaurants overlooking the caldera- go to a bar with a view for a drink and then come and enjoy beautiful home cooked proper Greek food in... More

This was the best place we ate during our time in Santorini. We were seated quickly and when my mom and aunt did the typical North American thing of asking what was good, the owner gave them a look and said "what do you like" haha. After B.S-ing for a short bit we ordered the stuffed zucchini in lemon sauce,... More

Late's start saying that this restaurant is different from the others as it looks exactly like what an authentic greek taverna should look like. No modern looks, no cafe props, just authentic greek from 50 years ago at its best. The queue stretches outside the door and around the corner, and we had to waite a little even though we... More
