    We love Nicky's! We love the great atmosphere, great menu, reasonably priced and the food is excellent. On this occasion we needed a quick meal before heading to the theatre. It's definitely a place we will be returning to.

    A most pleasant dining experience! Friendly helpful service and the food was wonderful. From a tantalising menu we opted to share the Greek Mezze Platter at £30, asking for no grain or sugar. The first installment was superb with meatballs and salad and the best squid we'd ever tasted plus some other equally delightful items. The second installment was chicken on skewers with a heap of fabulous chips and a serving of mushrooms. We found this not to be quite as succulent at the previous selection but we were rather full by this time.
    All in all a most enjoyable lunch out. The place was buzzing with other guests; it's clearly very popular.

    I had heard a lot about Nicky's Fish Bar but hadn't gone before. When a friend suggested it I figured why not, he said he had been a few months ago and enjoyed it a lot. I had the fish and chips, predictable maybe but they were delicious! My friend had the calamari and chips and was equally impressed. Can't recommend it enough!

    I love it here! I had the pan-fried chicken breast and my partner had the traditional fish and chips as he'd read that they were lovely. Will definitely be going back!

    A great evening. Very good food, plenty of it, well presented and everyone enjoyed it. The waiter was excellent, giving great service with added fun banter throughout the evening. We will be returning thats for sure.

    My wife and I went to this restaurant for a Valentine's day special. The food was superb, generously portioned and simply excellent value. The staff was genuinely friendly and the atmosphere was very pleasant. If we are visiting Derby in the future we will certainly come to this restaurant again. 10/10

    Lovely greek fish platter, and greek salad to start. Service was hospitable and helped with the prebooked bottle of wine. It was my wifes birthday and we fancied Greek for a change after the cinema and Nicky had decorated the table for us and a group of strangers sang happy birthday to her to make a lovely night. The fish was done to a treat - superb!

    The starter was fantastic and so was the salad. Too much food and the rest of the mezze was like fish and chip shop style.

    Came here after shopping at the shopping centre and had lamb kleftiko and an amazing greek dessert called bakleva. My first experience of greek food and its left me wanting more! I go shopping at westfield regularly so it looks like I'll be going to nicky's regularly now!
