Restaurant details
Reviewed 21 August 2017 via mobile

Stopped here on the final night of our sailing trip. It's a friendly cove with three restaurants, but we'd heard Nico's was best.

All food suggested by Nico which was expected, we'd seen them washing mussels in the Bay earlier and wasn't disappointed. Appetiser was scallops, oysters, octopus and mussels. It looked like a mountain of food but take away the shells and was just tight. Not overly seasoned either.

Main course of fish, but we'd had the foresight to say, not too much (tend to eat a lot on boats) ... fish arrived with roasted veg and potato and was just right.. followed by home made Creme caramel (lovely) and washed down with a local brandy.
Including a bottle of wine, this came to eu60 per person. Good food, good value.

I'd been quite wary of noise when sleeping on boats, Sipan was loud, polace was quiet, here was silence.... luck of the draw maybe, but I'm not complaining.

Arrived by private boat and was welcomed ashore by the owners who helped us to moor up outside. If we had wanted to stay the night we could have had free water and electricity with our free mooring as long as we ate in their Resteraunt. After a couple of drinks we asked to see the menu. I will wake up my husband said the lovely waitress. Sure enough, he arrived 10 mins later to take our order. No menu, just suggestions.
Very relaxed, very casual with delicious food.

We were traveling on a catamaran two families with kids. Niko's tavern was highly recommended. We went on our way back.
The service was bad. We had to wait long time for food. To be honest the food tasted good but nothing special. For the price pied not worth it. The owner was drunk and careless. Other guests had party until 5am on their boat and Niko did nothing. Our kids couldn't sleep all night. If you are traveling in the vicinity don't fall for old praises. This restaurant is not worth you time. In the same bay there os different one we stayed there twice last year and we recommend it highly.

This place has a very loyal following for good reason. There is no official menu, but embrace this quirky approach! Niko will sit with you at your table and plan a meal with you, based on what he has available that day. Trust him and he will deliver. The cost is revealed at the end of the meal but don't worry - his pricing is fair.

We enjoyed a fabulous meal. Lobster Soup for starters, followed by a mixed seafood plate (anchovies, octopus salad and mussels). A third course of perfectly cooked sea bass - all washed down with decent house wine.

We will definitely return.
