Ace Greek food and good service

In Nidri in a friends yacht. Went to the Barrel for dinner. Staff are friendly without being over bearing and the food from the Greek section of the menu was great. Wine was reasonable-price and quality. The local brandy should be tried. We had 2 each on the house-smooth with an interesting... read more

For service I'd give it 5 stars! The food was good and great value. The pizzas are a perfect size to share and the free mini desert and coffee were great. Loads of other places to eat around but you should try here at least once.

Staff kind and helpful. Food at best level. Starting "meze", bread, water and sweet FOC. Only one remark (but it seems to applies to all restaurants in this region): we visited Lefkada in the beginning of May. Everywhere there are lemon trees laden with fruit and still they served the salad with vinegar.

This is a somewhat late review as I don't normally write them, but having been to this beautiful restaurant numerous times in the summers of 2013 and 2014 with my daughter and partner, i just want to emphasise its sheer quality and magic. Once we had discovered it on our second night, for us it was the only place to... More

We did arrive here at late lunch, since earlier days this place was full packed at dinner time. Staff was good and willing to serve us, but food was really lacking some seasoning. I had pastitsio which really didnt taste like anything at all. I know its not spicy dish but some salt & pepper should be included. Maybe the... More

Once again we returned to The Barrel for a couple of meals this year whilst staying close to Nidri. Don't know how they do it but we were recognised from our visits last year and were greeted like friends. Food is good quality and great value plus they give you water and bread with dipping oil and balsamic on arrival... More
