“A favourite stop”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

Several years of visits behind us and it never disappoints. The food is good and great value.
Nico is as crazy as Julie is lovely. Wether it be a brunch or an escape from my wifes constant
shopping, this is the place to relax whilst watching the world go by. I have spent many a pleasant
hour waiting for my wifes return and never tire of advising her to 'do your thing, I'll be o.k.' I will
actually fund her trips. She thinks I'm lovely.

“One Word - Appalling”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

We tried Nikos based on the high number of excellent reviews but it turned out to be the worse eating experience we have had in the numerous restaurants tried over many years in a variety of resorts on many different Greek islands.
Our only saving grace is that we only had a snack which comprised of a Gyros one would not have given to a dog (greasy, like plastic and completely tasteless) plus what was supposed to be a cheese toastie (it turned out to be a long tasteless roll with some awful looking cheese that was barely warm never mind melted as in a proper toastie). The coffee was barely warm and gave a new meaning to the word dreadful.
How people can give this place such a high rating is totally mystifying and our advice is stay well clear!

Julie W, Owner at Nikos Restaurant, responded to this review, August 31, 2013
Dear Carol and Jerry, we were sorry to read you had a disappointing experience with us at Nikos this summer. I’m afraid we don’t recall this specific occasion but we do serve literally thousands of people each summer, the vast majority of whom as you rightly point out give us excellent reviews. I can only apologise if you found our standards to be lacking in any way on the day of your visit.
As a family-owned business of over 25 years standing, we take a great deal of pride in the quality of our food and service, and regrettably we don’t always get it right. But it is always helpful to receive feedback - whether good or bad - and we shall certainly take your comments on board.
Do come and see us when you return to the island and we’ll try and make it up to you.
Best wishes, Julie and Nico

“The Best Gyros!”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

Coming to Skiathos town for a night of shopping or drinking, we loved to stop off and get a Gyros pitta and although we did try a few throughout our holiday, Nikos Gyros was by far the best! Friendly staff and tasty food! Will definitely recommend to anyone visiting Skiathos Town!

“Great value and plenty of choice”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

Brilliant - just have a snack if you wanted or have a full meal. Extensive choice - salads most enjoyable, sandwiches brill!. Plenty of greek dishes available. If you fancy a challenge try the Gyros plate! Service quick and friendly - no dislikes at all.
