Holiday number 7 to Pefkos and Taverna Nikolas is always one of the first Restaurants we visit, great food and friendly welcome always received. A tip for fellow diners - if Nikolas says he has a special of the day take it as they are always amazing and cooked with great passion, see you in 2016

Anybody who knows Pefkos knows that Nik's place is Number 1 whatever the Trip Advisor ratings may suggest! This place is always very busy but its run extremely efficiently by Nikolas who always makes a point of introducing himself to every customer. He delights in explaining how he sources only the best ingredients and he takes a genuine pride in... More

Went to this beautiful restaurant our last two nights of holiday and could not fault in anyway. Nikolas is a very welcoming host and takes the time and trouble to visit each table and personally take your orders. Beautiful sunsets while eating excellent food. The mussels were to die for. Also the herb crusted lamb was melt in the mouth... More

This restaurant was a short walk from our hotel "Eagles Nest", so much choice & all with excellent to outstanding service, Lamb shank in Balsamic Vinegar & a steak is what I had here (not at the same time) the title says it all. I can't say a lot more, if your in Pefkos you have to try this place,... More

We went here a number of times during our holiday and the food is lovely, really lovely. The Greek Plate is so good. My Husband is Greek and he said the food is as good as his Mother's so that is a real compliment to them. It's family run and the staff are polite and helful. It's also quite reasonable,... More

Visited here after reading the positives reviews however my experience did not meet my expectations. The view of the bay from the restaurant is stunning. Ordered lamb chops which had very little meat on them and they were very greasy. The service was poor and very rushed. The owner seemed very proud to keep mentioning his name which was off... More

Family restaurant which serves great food. Very popular with people quint for a table. Staff do become distracted from serving in the quest to attract more customers passing by on the road side whilst they are serving you.

have to say that in all the places we ate on a recent holiday to pefkos this is the best. Food is so fresh and cooked to perfection and the staff are just lovely and couldnt do enough for us. We also had the added extra of a seat on the veranda watching the spectacular sunset over Pefkos. Fantastic evening... More

This was a place recommended to us and we were not disappointed. You can see the sun setting from one side of the taverna although the bay is a distance away. Never mind that. Nicolas serves vegetables grown in his own garden and his wife also makes all of the desserts on the menu. The food was all first class... More
