We had warm welcome to a family run typically Greek taverna. Food and service was excellent. This is a bit of a trek if you are staying at the other end of Pefkos but worth while. We ate at the end of October and many of the main restaurants in town were empty, but this was nearly full and had... More

Visited on an October Tuesday night, we shared a dip and pitta starter for two, delicious though we needed to order an extra bread due to the amount of dips. Main course we ordered one lamb shank Nikolas and one lamb with honey. Both came well presented hot and full of flavour. The icing on the cake was the service... More

This taverna is situated 10 minutes walk out of the centre of Pefkos but is certainly worth the exercise and may probably be needed to walk off the generously portioned meals. The taverna has very good views standing in an elevated position but there is protection should winds blow. It was very busy when we visited and it may be... More

Great meals, service could have been better, but all in all a strong 4* from us! A view that not many places around can match!

We ate here from recommendation from tripadvisor and other guests, restaurant not that busy, food ok, staff not very friendly, waited over an hour after the main meal to be asked if all was ok, no drinks offered after first one, we were not asked if the food was ok, is quite a way out if you are staying at...

Restaurant worth the walk up the hill views across the bay, we were there late in September so more lights than view but see view during the day. Service excellent and friendly and food best we experienced in resort.

Read all the hype about this place and whilst we found it pleasant, it wasn't anything more. The food was good but not spectacularly good and there are other restaurants in the resort that are noticeably better

My son has gone to this Restaurant every time he visits Pefkos, (5yrs in a row) and this yr was a family holiday and this was the first place he took us. Greeted by Nikolas himself, he remembered my son and his wife and gave us a lovely warm welcome. Delicious food, from the traditional to more modern, something for... More

Taverna Nikolas is a very family friendly place made us feel very welcome even though we hadn't booked. Food was excellent, traditional Greek and good selection of dishes. Good value for money. Book unless you're going to eat early.

Thank Andrew M
