Very nice taverna with welcoming staff, the Nikos Special Salad is exceptional and the Souvlaki tender and moist. We were made to feel very welcome and went back 3 times, unusual for us so it must have been good!

Very friendly and efficient. We all had an enjoyable meal, even the coeliacs. The wine was good too. Worth a visit.

O Nikos is situated one street back from the sea just down from the National Bank of Greece. The selection of food is tremendous and well displayed so you can check it out before you order. Nikos and Penelope are lovely people who serve you well and give a warm welcome to everyone. Try the spit grilled meat - fabulous!... More

We have dined here in the past (around four years ago) and it has not changed in that it is still very good. The food is excellent, good service,. everything about it is good. We will be back next year.

Away from the waterfront but worth seeking out, this small family restaurant has a huge popular following.We were attracted to it after walking past the premises in the late afternoon and noticed many hands busily preparing many dishes with local vegetables and produce before the premises opened for the evening. Noticing our interest the proprietor invited us to view the... More

Lovely looking old taverna side street in Vathy. Very welcoming and place was busy, so we thought we would give it a go. Food on the spit looked great, however, thats where the good news ends. Sat underneath a dripping air con unit which was stuffed with paper towels to catch the drips but staff were lovely. We were really... More

A little away from the waterfront, but always very busy with a nice and lively atmosphere. The restaurant offers a lot of different dishes that are served in rather big portions at very reasonable prices. If you like grilled meat or fish this is the place to go. Friendly but at times extremely busy staff!

A very busy restaurant but food brilliant and plentiful -- staff very helpful and obliging despite being run off their feet --as all tables seemed full of yacht crews with enormous appetites-- we had a lovely meal and still left loads on our plates

Busy restaurant and yes they do need to get bums on seats when you are only charging 30euros for suckling pig, lamb, a beer and 1/2 litre of wine!! Nice buzz, rushed but friendly staff .... Well worth giving it a go. It's not on the waters edge, but just behind the square.

We were on a sailing holiday ( 10 of us family and friends aged 19 - late 50's ). We ate out every night whilst sailing around the islands and had had on the whole very good fayre. Difficult not to get persuaded in by Nikos and his staff who were coaxing all and sundry to come and look at... More
