Excellent food and ambience

Some of the previous reviewers commented on a 'rude owner'. I'd like to say, he comes across that way initially, but is really a nice and personable guy despite his brusqueness. The food was excellent. We were a group of 8 (adults and kids), Among other things, we ordered, the grilled squid... read more

Great food, reasonable prices. Didn't thought of leaving a review till I saw a few ones here with very low ratings. I thought the owner was pretty friendly, in a grumpy, straight-forward old man way. He's not your typical waiter that's just there to provide the best customer service, but it's sort of like his home and he'll say whatever... More

Try to find another restaurant for traditional Greek food. SO UNFRIENDLY. Six of us went into the restaurant this afternoon and the owner had said the most impolite words to us. We wanted to order something traditional for early dinner and asked the owner for his reccommendation. Not only did he try to lure us to order the dishes with... More

We were students in a group of six went to this restaurant as our hostel owner recommended us it is a good place to try out traditional Greek food. It was a pity we could not find out how great the food is but the rude boss of this restaurant really pissed us off and we left the place straight... More

She wasnt even able yo eat the squid it was so cold and chewy. I had the beef stew which was good but again any minute or two... More

Nikolas is THE restaurant to go to if you are in Santorini. It is the perfect small, quaint, authentic place to go. It has absolutely delicious food and your waiter is none other than Nikolas himself. Our host, the owner of Pension Stella (a fantastic place to stay), recommended it and it was perfect. It is right in Fira town... More

We were recommended to have dinner at Nikolas by the Salt & Pepper owner when the restaurant was closed due to the water supply being cut-off. When the owner of a highly ranked restaurant recommends another restaurant, you simply know it is going to be good. We were not disappointed even though it took us a while to locate Nikolas... More

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.
