Great traditional tavern

Great traditional food with Nikolas very passionate about his cooking and often brings out little tasters for you to try. We went twice in 10 days both times very pleased with a nice option on the house wine too.

Been to this restaurant every time we visit mainly for the kleftiko which I love. The meat falls of the bone. It is very friendly and traditional.

Visited here after a 3 year gap when last in town. We bravely ordered the meat Meze for 2 and half way through realised we should have skipped lunch! The food was amazing and reminiscent of the previous visit here, it could easily have fed a family of four. Lamb was the last dish to come out and was to... More

We wanted a traditional Greek Cypriot meal and Nikolas Tavern did not disappoint. The place isn't over styled like some of the other Greek places on the strip and offers lots of home cooked dishes.

The local dishes are authentic very tasty and portions are HUGE. don't be afraid to leave what you can't manage, enjoy what you can. Owner Nicholas will advise your choices and explain how dishes are made if you are interested. The high number of returning customers reflects the quality of the food.

We have been going there as a family for many, many years and consider Nicolas, Julia and the staff to be friends. The quality of the food is... More

We have visited Nicolas Taverna in Protaras every year since the day it opened and on the 28th September 2014, along with 52 guests, this was the venue for our Ruby Wedding Anniversary Party - what an absolutely fantastic evening was had by everyone. We left all of the arrangements to the head waitress, Yulia, and Nicolas and they had... More
