Stumbled across this place when looking for somewhere to stop for lunch. Food was very tasy and service friendly and fast. Parking was no problem and everything felt more personal than down by the beach.

Whilst lacking in atmosphere, O Nikolas was a friendly, cheap and great tasting little restaurant. The food was fresh and well seasoned. They offered a tasty cherry yoghurt and the traditional Raki at the end of the meal.

Offers plenty of restaurants and cafes, souvenir shops and more and less prestigious fashion houses, the trip there is indeed longer than the hotel but is worth and pays off

O Nikolas has a very misleading outlook. It looks like a a small coffee place for locals. But don't be fooled. They cook great home made dishes in an open kitchen, and it has everything a good meal needs: Fresh ingredients with proper treatment, and...More

We never did but obviously things will be getting busier. The whole sea front is full of tavernas. Really liked this one. We never booked either day or evening but you can just pop along in the day and do so in person if... More
