WELCOME TO NIKOLAS TRADITIONAL TAVERNA!!
Perikles Katsaros and his family welcome new and old friends to Nikolas Taverna, one of the best loved and most frequented tavernas in Corfu.
Set in an Idyllic place, privileged located in front of the sea, with the deep blue stretching out into the distance and boats bobbing in the foreground, Nikolas Taverna is an ideal place for your meal in a peaceful setting.
We invite you to Nikolas Taverna, to soak up the beauty and enjoy our inimitable recipes of freshly cooked Corfiot cuisine, our hospitality and the congenial atmosphere we have created for you in one of the island’s most picturesque bays.
STILL: If you can’t “satiate your appetite” for the idyllic area and the hospitality of Nikolas Taverna, then join us and spend some unforgettable moments in the apartments close by the sea, owned by our family.
Perikles and his family have a special “Greek Night” for their guests every Thursday.
On these evenings they aim to re-create the spirit and atmosphere of the traditional village Festival (panigiri).
In the old days nearly every village and hamlet held a “panigiri” on its Saints day and other special occasions.
The Favorite Spot
Agni Bay in North East Corfu has become something of a favorite spot with the media. Nikolas Taverna, one of the tavernas on the bay, has over the years, often been mentioned in the British press and in 1998 it was chosen by the BBC for the filming of the series “Fasten your seatbelt” starring Toyah Willcott. ITV has also included Nikolas Taverna in a program on Greek Tavernas as one of the best of its kind…
A Brief History
The building which now is the present taverna, has been in the possession of Perikles and his family for more than a century. The building was build in 1892 by the grandfather of Perikles. The top floor was the house that the family lived in and downstairs was the “kafeneion” with the dread oven and the olive press.
“Really nice little boat trip out to Nikolas’s and good food.”
Lovely restaurant with friendly staff. Very busy on the night we went but the food was good. My husband and daughter had steak, they both said how well it was cooked. I had fish that turned up with a head on which put’s me off, once the waiter who fuss free brought it back without the head it was delicious! When we go back this year we will book up for the Greek night.

“Great food, fantastic location, fun staff”
So good we ate here twice – once for lunch and once for the Greek dance evening. This is a fun place with a very charismatic owner.
A fantastic location right on the beach being able to watch the boats come and go.
And great food – lunch was the usual Greek fare but very tasty too. The dinner was lamb and chicken barbecue roasted on a spit – really tasty.
A lot of fun!
