FISH TAVERN SANTORINI | THE CAVE OF NIKOLAS
About the cave of nikolas

Our Story

Santorini… Akrotiri beach… By the sea, lies for many years a small, traditional cave, build by Uncle Nikolas with his own hands when he was young. Made with lots of love and passion, the cave offered a kind of shelter to himself and his little boat.
Always by his side was his wife, Aunt Efstathia, whom her “magical” cuisine made everybody crazy. Unforgettable Spiros Marinatos, headmaster of the excavation project in the archaeological place in Akrotiri, suggested to Uncle Nicolas to alter this shelter in a small tavern, for the hungry workmen of the excavation, offering them traditional and delicious treats such as tomatoballs, fava, “chloro” cheese, spaghetti with sauce and plenty of fresh fish.

We serve freshest fish catches

Our Philosophy

The best of local produce, fish and seafood caught off the Aegean Sea. Our menus change twice daily depending on what local fishermen have brought in to us.
Our chef Minas Alefragkis every morning selects the freshest fishes and seafood from local market.
The cuisine is mainly based on the gastronomy of Santorini and local products, with 70% of them and depending on the month, being our own production. Our own meats, our own vegetables, such as tomato, white eggplant, fava beans, pumpkin, vegetables, potato, lambs, pigs.
In our own farm we produce the most of the products you found in our restaurant. Meat, cheese, vegetables, wine with traditional way of production.
