Lucky to be seated with spectacular views over Pefkos bay, twinkling lights - a perfect setting for our eve. The mixed dips with pitta were yummy. Our friends had the lamb , huge plate -... More

We had a lovely meal with friends who had been before and couldn't wait to show us. Staff were very welcoming and food excellent. Nikolas is very proud that he grows his own vegetables and herbs and they are something to be proud about. It was a long walk for us as we were staying a 10 minute walk the... More

We first tried Nicholas Taverna several years ago and now we just have to have our first evening meal of our holidays there. You can tell Nicholas takes great pride in his restaurant and the food his kitchen staff produce. A good sign of a good restaurant is how busy it is and when we were there end of September,... More

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.
