Description: The members of the Pavin family explain their lifelong successful tradition with the motto: "Our guests feel at home here and the meals we serve them are the ones we would prepare for us." The Niko Restaurant is situated just 3,5 km from the town centre, in the picturesque location known as Puntamika. It is surrounded by the sea, soft flowing winds, with the panoramic View of our 3,000 years old town of Zadar, the town with rich historical background and numerous cultural and historical monuments and museums. The restaurant has seating for 150 people. Its cuisine is based on the fish and the house specialities are scampi, fish (which our guests choose themselves from an abundant fresh selection) and lobsters from our own aquarium. Not only the pleasant atmosphere and the world class cuisine are meritorious for the overall enjoyment you will experience at Niko's, the credit also goes to the klapa Niko (choir) founded by the owner himself.

“Always fresh fish”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Always a superb choice of fresh fish. Prices are high, the atmosphere more like the hall for weddings. Recommended as the best place forsea food lovers in Zadar.

“Great Food, Nice View”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

Our early dinner at Restaurant Niko was wonderful! Staff were very friendly and eager to please. We had the fish dinner for two comprised of grilled sea bass and the best grilled squid I've ever tasted. The atmosphere of the restaurant is pleasant and we were lucky to have a table right in front of the large, sliding window that was open to catch the breeze. Niko is a must-try if you're in Zadar!

“Excellent seafood, friendly staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

I was disappointed by restaurant's facelifting (it used to be simple, but excellent place to enjoy seafood), but to my surprise, they maintain the expected quality. There is the loss in ambiance, but still highly recommendable!
