This restaurant was recommended to us by one of the locals. It is way off the main street and probably a 15 minute walk from the centre but well worth the walk. Nikolas greeted us and was very polite and a gentleman. He talked us through the hotel specials and recommended the Sea Bass as well as a few other... More

A full 3 course meal with 4 alcoholic drinks between us came to 53 euro. Well worth it. We recommended this restaurant to a good few of the... More

Nikolas is a warm chap who is welcoming and happy to chat and give advice on the menu. I had the nikolas lamb which was tasty and tender. I've had better greek salads. It's one of the few authentic looking greek restaurants in pefkos. Took 45 mins to get the bill which I found rather ridiculous, even in Greece.

Been here on three occasions. Loved two of them, hated the third. This place gets packed and many of the reviews are accurate, great food and good views. However, I don't feel the place can always handle the volume and when things go wrong, service and quality dips badly. I would still recommend the restaurant, but avoid peak times. Rethinking...

Still lovely food and service, everything is done professionally and always with a smile, all food is delicious, the Lamb is amazing with mint or apple and honey, in fact everything our party of seven ordered, starters and mains could not be faulted, only problem not enough room for one of the wonderful sounding deserts. Will definitely return.

The food was really nice but as there was only 2 of us so we were sat away from everyone else and found that the waitirs/waitresses attending to the bigger tables rather than smaller ones.

We've eaten at most places now in Pefkos but until tonight not here. Invited by a very good friend we were all warmly greeted and experienced a wide ranging and superb menu. Very friendly staff and whilst a distance from our accommodation we will definitely be going back. Thanks Nikos P.

Set at the top or bottom of Pefkos, the restaurant is set up nicely with good views. Service good and food very nice. Try the lamb in balsamic reduction.
