The Cave of Nikolas Restaurant

Superb 4.6/5 1688 reviews

The Cave of Nikolas has been serving in Santorini, at Akrotiri Beach by the sea, since 1967. It is a family-primarily seafood restaurant with much passion and desire for quality homemade food. Providing customers with amazing Greek taste, traditional delicate fresh fish flavors, but also the best quality meat options for those who want something different! The name of the restaurant came from the owner’s idea to build a cave and make it the most amazing dining experience! We could not omit, that all our products are carefully selected every day from our farm, and all our fish is freshly caught daily.

The inviting atmosphere and the attentive, friendly staff will also contribute to ensuring you an enjoyable taste adventure! You will have some special moments with your family or your friends, while you are drinking one of our extraordinarily vast varieties of local Santorinian wines and drinks. Last but not least, The Cave of Nikolas is the best place to admire the picturesque sunset. Take time to watch the setting sun, to see the colors change that will become one with the sea! It is definitely a place to see and be seen!

Very kind waiters with a great sense of humour. The service was impeccable and the good just amazing. They can also do take away upon request. Their appetizers platter and seafood platter are huge and very good. We went back a second time and tried the spaghetti lobster which we found generous and cheaper than another restaurant just nearby.

We had an absolutely delicious dinner here. The fish tomato balls are amazing. All the appetizers were amazing, we also tried the zucchini flowers. The moussaka is vegetarian but it was absolutely delicious. The flavors are similar to a ratatouille. I had the seafood risotto, which was a huge portion. This is a lovely place for a seaside dinner.

An unbelievable little Taverna on the water with delicious seafood. If you want seafood they bring you into the kitchen and bring the fish they have out of the fridge so that you can choose what you like. We had grilled sardines, octopus and red snapper as well as the tomato balls, mixed appetizer platter and fried Red Mullet. Everything was delicious and fairly priced for the quality and location.

Great experience. Very popular restaurant next to the red beach, a great place to enjoy fresh seafoods, but the spaghetti used wasn’t tasty and full of moisture, I wouldn’t recommend that. And table directly next to the sea was very sunny, half of the table was under sun straight away, could destroy your dining experience easily.
