I never understand why this place is not rated higher. I guess maybe because it doesn't come with all the bells and whistles of Kyma and it's at the far end of the resort, but it does one thing perfectly - Greek food and hospitality. The menu is small, but this is never a bad thing. It's much better to... More

After finding that the Anixis Taverna where we had intended to eat was full (it was one of their live music nights) we decided to give the Nikolas Taverna a go. Reviews on this site were very positive and we expected a fantastic meal. Unfortunately we were slightly disappointed. The food was good, the service was good, the restaurant itself... More

I think our experience was reflected by the fact it was approaching the end of the season and overall the food was pretty rubbish I am afraid.

Ate here on our last visit to Pefkos and enjoyed the experience so although staying at the opposite end of the village this time it was worth the 30 minute walk. Good food with attentive friendly staff.

The restaurant is an absolutely gem. From local favourites like lamb cooked with feta in a filo parcel to seafood pasta and risotto. Delicious, delicious, delicious! I highly recommend this restaurant for lunch and dinner in a Pefkos.

Recently returned from our third visit to Pefkos, the last one being in 2010. We decided to return to Nikolas taverna as it had always been one of our favourite restaurants. We were very surprised that Niklolas remembered us and greeted us very warmly after 4 years! The food was lovely and the service was good, but it does get... More
