We went with friends, what can I say portion sizes are absolutely huge, a little to much to be honest, infact I felt defeated before I started so make sure your hungry when you go. In saying that the food was very tasty and good value for the money, house wine was very nice and the service was good.

If you wish to taste a traditional cypriot food, go to Nikolas. If you want a international food, choose some other place. Mezes are the best choice here.

We always visit this resturant when we holiday in Protaras and have always loved the experience of eating here but not this year! The food was average and service was poor. Nikolas was only interested in keeping his Russian customers happy the night we visited we felt like we were invisible. We wont be back when we next visit Protaras!

Every year when we return to Cyprus for our holiday we wonder if Nikolas has kept it's high standards ..... the answer is definitely YES !!! We have just returned from a week's holiday & we ended up dining at Nikolas 3 times. If you appreciate authentic Cypriot food served simply in generous portions you will love the food here.... More

One of the best restaurants I've ever eaten at! We asked to see the traditional oven, as the host was very friendly, and we were talked through all the meals... Mouth watering! We were back for seconds before we flew home at the end of the week.. and it was equally perfect! I was even taught how to make their... More

Nicolas tavern is a steady value no matter how many other new ones open in the round area. He continues to keep his cuisine in high standards. He is a passionate professional and an open-hearted person. I am sure you will return when you try his Kleftiko or any of his other local dishes. If this is your first time... More

A lovely restaurant if you want to experience traditional Cypriot food and good service. The lamb kleftico, beef stifado and mousakka were really tasty. The Chef "Nikolas" always came and made sure we were enjoying our food.We ordered the meat meze for two to share with our daughter as well and they even gave us more of the starters to... More
