Time Out says
One of the first restaurants to be privatised in former Yugoslavia back in 1963, Niko is not too pretty from the outside, but houses one of the most popular kitchens in Zadar, almost an institution. Set near Marina Borik on Puntamika’s southernmost headland, Niko contains both a small hotel and a proud restaurant with an extensive choice of wine. Fresh fish arrives daily and is then prepared with carefully selected olive oil over a wood-fire grill. Regulars tend to favour the green tagliatelle with scampi and the tiramisu. A spacious terrace looks out towards the Puntamika yachting marina.
