A cost-benefit restaurant, with variegated menu options. The best fresh coconut lemonade that I had opportunity to drink in the island.

This place is right on the water. There were crabs that I could have reached out and touched. There are linen table cloths and napkins but this is not what I would call a fancy place. Very bright with a million dollar view. Not air conditioned but good ocean breeze so not necessary. Everything was clean and tidy. There were... More

Each time that I visit San Andres Island, I visit Nikos Restaurant. The crab fried rice is amazing as is the fish with the lemon sauce. I think it is a family owned restaurant so you get really good customer service in a very family friendly manner :-)

Few people there when I visited. Had a wonderful lobster dinner, and amazing coconut rice (uses Coca Cola; very different than Thai coconut rice), and superb coconut pie. Friendly waiter.

Had dinner here and the service was really poor. The quality of the food was ok but nothing compared to other places on the island.

Went there with my couple, the attention was good but the food was regular, not even near as tasty as the one from the fisherman's place or the grog on san Luis. The amount of shrimp was really scarce compared to the other places around the island, specially for the price they charge. This place is really a shame for... More

My wife and I went there two nights ago. It is a pleasant place with a great ambience and friendly staff. The waiter suggested their best lobster, the one in garlic sauce... Then you realize this is probably the only place in the world that can make lobster taste bad! I would not recommend this dish. In fact, I would... More

A group of friends and I wnt to this restaurant based on the reviews we had read. We were very disappointed: the food was not good, the place was empty and the bill was way too high for the experience. We ordered mussels ehicj were not bad but there were only 5 mussels on the plate for 12 dollars,

Came to Niko's on the recommendation of a local driver we had been using and found the best restaurant service on the island so far. It may not look particularly fancy from the outside, but Niko's more than makes up for it in ambiance. Fun, helpful waiters, a great setting on the water, and tasty local fish and seafood. I...
