Lovely Taverna, with character, can be busy.

A typical Greek Taverna, selling all the classics, can be busy in the Summer. Loads of character and right by all the bars.

Really lovely food at this restaurant but the service was very slow we were waiting 10 mins for someone to take our order and then 30 mins for food great place but needs more staff. We went there when it was quite so I can't imagine how long it takes to get your food on a busy night. Even though... More

Once visited, you'll want to go back again and and again. Amazing food, very reasonably priced, and very friendly and efficient service. Loved it. Can't wait to go back to Tigaki the year after next - Nisiotiko will be our first port of call for dinner - their pasta is the best.

Went here today for lunch. The Greek salad, according to my wife, was excellent. My son and I snacked on Gyros which was very good and plenty of it. Was quite busy too so for a lunchtime visit would highly recommend. Can't say about on a nightime as we haven't been (obviously) but bodes well I think for you would... More

Visited this restaurant three times during our stay. Food was traditional greek and the service was excellent. The oven baked lamb and the feta cheese starter (bouyardi) are highly recommended. It is only small which adds to the ambience though it does get very busy. Staff work very hard and are polite and pleasant. Would definitely return here when we... More

Lovely restaurant with plenty of traditional greek food to choose from - the Lamb Kleftiko was excellent. It was a very busy restaurant and had a 'feel good' buzz about it and the staff worked very hard and were very attentive - excellent value for money.

Small Greek taverna with tasty food, very crowded in the evening, good choice for lunch (also when Mylos Taverna is not opening for lunch), located centrally in Tigaki.

Nisiotiko is a traditional taverna offering the best in fresh Greek food in Tigaki. My favourites were the Stifado, the Kleftiki and the Chicken in Feta sauce. The fried courgettes served as a starter are amazing. There was plenty for the children too. By way of example, we had 2 starters to share, 4 main courses, 2 soft drinks, 1... More

Well she was there...as predicted. Food brilliant.....all cooked fresh so sometimes a little wait but this allowed us to soak up the atmosphere....pretty gingham tablecloths, vine... More
