Informed by local residents for a higher price, but the seafood, vine and the service worth that money. We will be back soon.

4 of us visited the Niko for the Valentine's Day. We came with the high expectations and it was disappointing. The food and the service was below average, but the price was high (300€). My wife ordered adriatic shrimps and got few small prawns. The beef steaks were dry and tartar meat flavourless and pre-prepared in kitchen. All in all,... More

Based on recommrndation, we tried the place and although the style, the environment is not my favourite,we were not disappointed. The shellfish and the amazing seabream were great! And perfect local vine!

This restaurant was recommended to us by a local. He told us it would be the freshest seafood we could eat. He was spot on. We just ask the chef to send us his specialities and he delivered 6 courses of brilliant seafood. While I am not a huge fan of octopus, we were served an octopus carpaccio that was... More

We've dined here repeatedly over the years but this time left disappointed. The fish was ok, the accompanying veggies salted to high heavens. The icing on the (bad) cake was the mineral water. It just smelled funny. We didn't say anything as we hadn't had that brand in a while. When we tasted the real thing the next day we... More

We went to this restaurant on the first evening of our stay in Puntamika, chiefly because, it was the closest, good quality,restaurant to our apartment. We were reassured by the fact that our trusted guide book had given it a good write up, albeit, with a warning that prices are high by local standards. We have no objection to paying... More

The members of the Pavin family explain their lifelong successful tradition with the motto: "Our guests feel at home here and the meals we serve them are the ones we would prepare for us." The Niko Restaurant is situated just 3,5 km from the town centre, in the picturesque location known as Puntamika. It is surrounded by the sea, soft flowing winds, with the panoramic View of our 3,000 years old town of Zadar, the town with rich historical background and numerous cultural and historical monuments and museums. The restaurant has seating for 150 people. Its cuisine is based on the fish and the house specialities are scampi, fish (which our guests choose themselves from an abundant fresh selection) and lobsters from our own aquarium. Not only the pleasant atmosphere and the world class cuisine are meritorious for the overall enjoyment you will experience at Niko's, the credit also goes to the klapa Niko (choir) founded by the owner himself.
