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. Over the years, the cave grew fast known to the visitors of the island, since after their visit at the excavation they used to direct to the beach to taste Aunt Efstathias’ popular snacks and the rich in taste and spice wine of Uncle Nicolas. In 1981, the “Cave of Nicolas” went on to their daughter, Margarita, who had learnt the art of cooking from Mr Marinatos wife. Her love for traditional cuisine and local products, that herself and her husband, Nicolas grow, gave her a Gourmet Prize, as the best traditional tavern for 2007-2008 in Santorini. I suggest you try the tomato meatballs. A variation that has been made is the tomato meatballs with fish inside, which was also awarded as the best on the island and is worth a try. Another dish I suggest is the white roasted eggplant, the fava and then the main dishes. The moussaka of the old times stands out, a vegetarian dish, the lamb the fried, a fava risotto - so as a variation of the fava, a little more gourme, without the gourmet meaning higher prices. Generally, everything on the menu is made with simple ingredients, fresh and worth a try. Je vous suggère d'essayer les boulettes de viande aux tomates. Une variante qui a été faite est les boulettes de viande à la tomate avec du poisson à l'intérieur, qui ont également été récompensées comme les meilleures de l'île et qui valent la peine d'être essayées. Un autre plat que je suggère est l'aubergine rôtie blanche, la fava puis les plats principaux. La moussaka des temps anciens se démarque, un plat végétarien, l'agneau frit, un risotto à la fava - donc en variante de la fava, un peu plus gourmande, sans que la gourmande ne signifie des prix plus élevés. Généralement, tout sur le menu est préparé avec des ingrédients simples, frais et qui valent la peine d'être essayés. Vă sugerez să încercați chiftelele de roșii. O variantă care a fost făcută este chiftelele de roșii cu pește în interior, care au fost, de asemenea, premiate ca fiind cele mai bune de pe insulă și merită încercate. Un alt fel de mâncare pe care vi-l propun este vinetele albe prăjite, fava și apoi felurile principale. Moussaka din vremurile vechi iese în evidență, un fel de mâncare vegetariană, mielul prăjit, un risotto de fava - deci ca o variantă a fava, un pic mai gurmand, fără ca gourmetul să însemne prețuri mai mari. În general, totul din meniu este făcut cu ingrediente simple, proaspete și merită încercate. Ti consiglio di provare le polpette di pomodoro. Una variante che è stata fatta sono le polpette di pomodoro con pesce dentro, premiate anche come le migliori dell'isola e che vale la pena provare. Un altro piatto che suggerisco sono le melanzane bianche arrosto, le fave e poi i secondi. Spicca la moussaka di una volta, un piatto vegetariano, l'agnello fritto, un risotto alle fave - quindi come variazione della fava, un po 'più di gourme, senza che il buongustaio significhi prezzi più alti. In generale, tutto sul menu è realizzato con ingredienti semplici, freschi e che vale la pena provare. Te sugiero que pruebes las albóndigas de tomate. Una variación que se ha hecho son las albóndigas de tomate con pescado en su interior, que también fue premiada como la mejor de la isla y merece la pena probarla. Otro plato que sugiero es la berenjena blanca asada, la fava y luego los platos principales. Destaca la moussaka de los viejos tiempos, un plato vegetariano, el cordero frito, un risotto de fava, así que como una variación de la fava, un poco más gourme, sin que lo gourmet signifique precios más altos. Generalmente, todo en el menú está hecho con ingredientes simples, frescos y que vale la pena probar.

In Spilia tou Nikola tavern, everything is homemade… the meat to is coming directly from the family farm and the fish is always fresh. In their own farm they produce most of the products you find in their restaurant. Meat, cheese, vegetables, wine with traditional way of production. Located in a peaceful part of the Island, far from the mass of tourists, right by the seafront, very near the archaeological site of Akrotiri.
