Great roast meat

Nilolas specializes in meat on the spit over a charcoal flame. I don't know what they marinate the meat in but it sure is wonderful once off the spit. Try the Gyros portion, really excellent plate of veggies and meat. One of our favorites in Agios Prokopios.

Crowds arrive before opening time for dinner and there is usually a wait. Lunch is less-crowded with a mixture of locals and tourists. Food is inexpensive and very traditional. Service is rapid and curt, Everything is delicious. No nouvelle here!!

Tried to find Nikolas restaurant during our Santorini holiday. Found the location however no business. Enquired about demise from 2 retailers in same location who explained business closed due to problem with premises lease with landlord.

While researching for restaurants in Fira, this restaurant popped out so when we chanced upon it, we decided to have dinner. It's a quaint taverna, simple and very traditional looking. The old guy who takes your orders comments on the item your ordering. My husband ordered grilled squid while I had the beef stifado (which according to the old guy... More

Then he said you ready to order you been here 5minutes. ummm nope we just sat... More

Nikolas was recommended by lots of people and when we eventually made it there we were not disappointed. The food was delicious, it was traditional Greek fare which we had throughout our stay in Santorini but it was just better! The moussaka really stood out.

I can see why this place is always busy. Several times we passed and people were waiting for tables to become available. Lovely food and quick, friendly service. Definitely worth a visit

This taverna was recommended by the owner of our hotel as a traditional Greek restaurant. We loved the food especially the moussaka and souvlaki and ate here on a few occasions. We enjoyed the quirky sense of humour displayed by the owner. He is a bit abrupt but he does well using English as a second language. If you want... More
