The restaurant is nice, you can have dinner or lunch by the sea directly on the sand, the food is perfect!

Fantastic location overlooking the bay and Nikiana breakwater. If you can, get a beachside table and watch the sun go down. Food and service excellent. Good value too.

Wonderful Seaside taverna (you can seat in a tabel at the beach, 3 meters far from the sea). Typical Tradional Greek Menù and all selected starters were tasty. As all many local tavernas, the service is easy and very informal. The Grilled Octopus is recommended.

The location of this tavern is simply beautiful, right on the beach, with nothing else in sight than the sea, mountains and the small Nikiana harbor. We went to have lunch there 3 or 4 times during our 2 week stay on the island and...More
