Just returned from another wonderful holiday in Protaras with my husband, sister and brother-in-law. As always we make Nicolas Tavern our first port of call and very rarely eat anywhere else . 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

The food here was good, if a little over-priced compared to other restaurants where the food is a better standard, but still a lovely place to eat.

This is the second time we have visited Nikolas' Tavern over a 2 year period, and happy to say it is still as good. We ordered a meat meze and a veg meze, and we were pleasantly surprised. His winning specialities are definitely the taramosalata and the humus, which are made fresh on site. The meats are also nicely cooked,... More

My wife and I went to Nikolas's restaurant on a recommendation from this site, and were not disappointed. The service was excellent, the waiters were very nice and spoke english fluently. We ordered local Cabernet that was excellent. The highlight of our evening was the lamb. We received big portions (we ordered the kleftico and lamb chops). The meat was... More

Visited on recommendation and we were not disappointed. The atmosphere was great, the staff were attentive and the Lamb Kleftiko was amazing. The restaurant is set out as a traditional taverna and the chef, a very happy and friendly man, comes into the dining area to ask if the food is ok. The pace of food delivery was perfect, giving...

We visited this restaurant last week, the food was excellent, the service good, and was by far the best meal of the week, over the years we have covered many restaurants in protaras, this is one of the best, not to be missed! Great traditional food, enormous portions!

If you travel to Cyprus and are in Fig Tree Bay you must, MUST, spend an evening with Nicolas and his staff! We went there to sample the roast lamb and each of us consider ourselves to be lamb experts! None of us has ever had lamb so tasty, so plentiful and so tender. Nikolas's expertise and his clay ovens... More
