Description: Nicky’s Fish Bar & Restaurant works to achieve a quality dining experience through the use of fresh and well prepared cooking from small Mediterranean dishes (the owner Nicky is from Cyprus) to the more obvious and always popular famous Traditional Fish and Chips. We hope to bring a warm welcome to everyone who dines here, we’re ideal for casual lunches, dinners, parties and business meetings as our restaurant has been designed to cater for 60 covers. A small sampling of Nicky’s favourite home authentic Greek dishes is on offer as well modern demands such as Gluten Free dining menu.

“Dull, overpriced, arrogant!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2014

Came with a friend with high hopes but soon found my hopes depleted! The food was both frozen and reheated (we could hear the microwaves pinging constantly!) Chips came from the chip shop that joins the restaurant. Waitress lacked enjoyment completely and was sat on her phone! The food was ridiculously priced considering all we were getting was essentially take-away food! Not to mention the arrogant owner that kept interrupting us throughout our time here. Shall not be returning ever again and would advise others not to!

“Good small restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2014

If you're looking for really good fish and chips in a long established place, this is it! We ordered the haddock and it was delicious. It is a famiy run restaurant and it's obvious that they take great pride in service and in their food. When in Derby, stop by Nicky's - you won't be disappointed!

“Best Fish & Chips”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2014

This is a small, family run restaurant, which has a separate take-out right next door. Established many years and gives good value for money and a more than pleasant atmosphere. Cannot be bettered.

“Returned after over 35 years what a nice surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2014 via mobile

In the 70s we used the take away and ate in a Motor Caravan, it's moved a couple of doors up the road, but it has improved ( the food needed no improvement ) but the layout / look and menu are a little bit of the Mediterranean on your front door. And ! The food tasted great too.

Will look forward to many more visits
