Lovely taverna on the beach at st Nicholas food excellent and good value. They also have a snack Bar for drinks which can be enjoyed in the shade if preferred. Good beach for swimming.

Disappointed to find so many sun beds and parasols in poor condition when the hire charge is the highest we've seen so far.

Actual sandy(in parts) beach - still bring your swimming shoes for the rocks. The taverna was fab, real local food. Quiet with beautiful water, alot of shady areas under trees as well as lots of sunny spots.

Perfect beach, beautiful, clean and well kept. Nice taverna and bar to keep you refreshed. We walked from Pedi bay which was a pretty walk. A perfect spot to while away the hours in the sun.

The Taverna is set on the Greek island of Symi in St Nicholas bay in an azure sea. Plenty of sun beds and when ready a truly traditional Greek taverna with good home cooked food. Family run, you will always be assured of a warm...More
