We found this restaurant on our last night in Corfu and wish we had found it earlier. We walked up a side street by the side of Roxanne’s on the main road in Roda and there it was. An inviting typical taverna with what looked like a typical menu. In we went to be greeted with a warm smile and welcoming attitude. It wasn’t very busy so we had our choice of tables. We ordered drinks which came very quickly then left alone to settle in and enjoy the atmosphere. When it came time to order the food all our questions were answered in a very friendly way. We both ordered a small starter then a lamb shank cooked ina similar way to Kleftiko but with a twist. The garlic bread I had was the size of a family list with kale a pound of cheese on it. When the main was served it was fantastic. I would defy anybody not to have enjoyed it and to be honest I don’t think you could have found better. I would recommend this restaurant to anybody and one thing I can assure you is you will be made to feel very welcome and you will enjoy the food. By the way two starters two mains and two drinks each came to less than 40€

We enjoyed Niko’s so much we ended up eating there 3 times in a 10 day holiday! The food is fantastic- home made and good sized portions. The restaurant is owned and run by a family- all involved and have different roles. The family were so friendly and authentic and fantastic service. We would really recommend the Greek music night- the sons in between serving customers managed to do Greek dancing, walk through fire and sing and play guitar! It was a really fun enjoyable night and they got the customers involved throwing plates also. We are all vegetarian and my daughter is also gluten free and we had good choice of food and they provided gluten free pasta for our daughter. It is slightly more expensive than some other places, but having eaten at several places during our holiday, it is definitely worth paying slightly more for the better quality and overall experience. Overall, a really fantastic time if you want delicious authentic Greek food and amazing warm hospitality.

We visited Nikos Family Taverna twice on our holiday which is unusual for us as we like to try different restaurants. The reason for this was the lovely authentic Greek experience we enjoyed. Nothing was to much trouble for this family run restaurant. The food was the best we found in Roda. Due to Covid they weren't able to put on a traditional Greek night with plate smashing but really made up for it with live Greek music. My children will never forget their evenings at this restaurant, especially my son who will cherish his signed Greek plate which was a gift due to his disappointment of not being able to smash any! Thank you for our wonderful memories.

We have been going to Nikos for many years but this year in particular it was important to illustrate how great this restaurant and the family who run it are and how their hard work and expertise augment and heighten the joy of coming to Roda. The food is delicious, the environment is always friendly and unassuming, nothing is too much trouble, and this year that included driving my wife back to her apartment because she was suffering sun stroke. If you visit Roda you must visit Nikos. You will be pleased you did.

We have just had an amazing 3 course meal at Nikos, authentic Greek food that tasted amazing. Lovely family run restaurant, one of the sons even played the bazooki and sang Greek songs. Lovely atmosphere, there were 4 of us, all adults, we all had a 3 course meal and drinks and the bill was €106, well worth the money, we also had a homemade lemoncello shot off the Lovely Lucy xx

Great food , huge selection.choose your Fresh seafood on display . We ate here as a change from all-inclusive samey, samey food selection. This was a truly memorable evening meal run by a very friendly family at a fair price highly recommend an evening dining experience here. Finishing off with home-made lemonchellie which is to die for.

The food here is extremely good, including dips made with home grown vegetables, but the service tops it all off. The Greek night is the best I've been to with plate smashing and fire dances in the street. It's up a back street but is only a few minutes walk behind the sea front. Everyone should make the effort!

Lovely located taverna which draws you in as you pass. Starters dolmades and sagnaki were great. My pork chop filled the plate and my wife’s stifado was the best ever she said. It was all washed down with a good carafe of local red wine. The waitress goes a little overboard trying to sell the lovely displayed sweets and for that reason I couldn’t give it 5 stars I’m afraid.

We saved going to Nikos until our last night of the holiday and it was worth the wait! The food is amazing, never ever had anything less than amazing. But the best part of this place? The family! They are the heart and soul, and the food is a bonus. Their Greek night is the best - telling tourists the actual story. We will never forget the kindness of Lucy on one of our earlier visits; 12-13 years ago, after arriving late and nowhere was open for food...Lucy reopened her kitchen just to cook us some gyros - an act of kindness that speaks volumes about the sort of people they are. We will see you next year, and the next, and the next....much love x

We came with a group of friends and liked the place so much that we kept returning throughout the whole holidays. I can especially record the sea food. I tried a variety of sea food dishes and they were all amazing. The fish was fresh and delicately cooked with aromatic herbs. Amazing lemon-herb sauce, salmon, mussels and calamari! The shrimps were just melting in my mouth. They also offered us free bread and appetizers! And the service and atmosphere was the best I have experienced in a long time since it is a family restaurant. And their Greek night was so much fun: totally recommend it!

If you are looking for some great authentic well cooked Greek food this is the place to go, I was very impressed by the hospitality of the family and the values they carry, it is very family orientated and absolutely enjoyed the fresh fish experience and the their garlic and white wine muscles are just out of this world. This is a must go too restaurant if you are visiting Corfu, specially in Roda. Thank you you for making my food experience one to remember. We went there for our final meal and they had some fabulous Greek dancing from the sons, and the mother is a sweetheart. I will definitely be visiting this restaurant again on my return to Roda. 💫💫💫💫💫👏👏👏👏👏

We visited Nikos twice during our 7 day stay, we only discovered the wonderful family run restaurant late in our visit to Roda, otherwise we'd have eaten here daily. Every dish ordered was delicious, fresh ingredients, cooked with love and very filling. We can highly recommend the saganaki (baked cheese), sretzofae (Greek sausages in a delicious sauce), stuffed mushrooms (melt in the mouth) moussaka, lamb exohiko (shank) and mixed grill (biggest portion of meats, breads and roasted veg we have ever seen), the desserts are all fabulous, especially the tiramisu. The family who run Nikos are so friendly and welcomed us warmly, Niko is a fabulous chef, he certainly knows his ingredients and treats them with respect, enabling him to create mouthwatering dishes, his wife is a lovely warm lady who runs front of house and makes time to speak to everyone (she even gave us a parting gift and fresh produce from their garden on our last visit) and one of his sons was running the table service and was very personable and funny, also playing the bouzouki to the diners, explaining the traditional songs. We wouldn't hesitate on recommending this fabulous restaurant and will definitely be back next suumer. A real taste of Greece ❤️

After an awful dining experience at our 4 star All Inclusive hotel we found this family run restaurant. If you are in Roda a visit to this gem of a place is a must. The food is fresh, homemade and plentiful. I really can't recommend this place highly enough. We had sea bass which was perfectly cooked as were the fillet steaks. I also had had 2 amazing Greek dishes, Stifado and Pastitsada. The starters were also fantastic, we had grilled haloumi, Spetzofae, homemade tomato soup made with tomatoes from the owners garden and homemade mushroom soup. We ate here almost every night of our holiday and were so impressed with the food and very friendly service from the owners.

We've visited last week and the welcome, the food, the service, and the setting was absolutely superb. A family run restaurant which makes you feel you're eating in their own home with the way you are treated. Recommend this for great greek food both as a couple or as a family. We will be back
