We stayed in Lakka for a week and ate here at least 4 times due to the excellent and traditional food, sheltered location and most of all the friendly and attentive service. Missing it already!

We ate at Pounentes twice. George was friendly and generous. Unfortunately the grill was not fired up (second week of the season) and the homemade pizza was a little short of toppings. However the cheese saganaki was suberb - very different from a normal Greek saganaki but very tasty. The beef sofrito and chicken curry were also good value and... More

Such a friendly welcome and great food. The staff were very informative and helpful. We had fish, steak and a vegetarian pasta dish. Drinks, coffee and digestifs to finish. We'll be back!

We have just retuned from a sailing holiday and spent 4 days in Lakka, unfortunately we didn't find out about Pounentes until the last evening! We were recommended by a friend who lives in Greece and they weren't wrong. I had the King Prawn curry and my partner had a vegetarian pizza. We both said its the best food we've... More

One of my favourite holiday routines is... get up, head over to Lakka, and stop off at Pounentes for breakfast before wandering around to Harami beach to soak up the sun. Coffee, pancake, and a fresh juice just kicks off the day with a smile.

Met George through a mutual friend and decided to visit the restaurant to see if it was any good. Well it was, we had a wonderful meal . I can recommend the village chicken, it was amazing. We also had the chocolate torte with strawberries! Delicious. All washed down with plenty of house wine. Highly recommend a visit.

The best Taverna in Lakka. Wood fired oven. Fresh food and fabulous service. In a beautiful square in the centre of the village.

We always head to Pounentes the minute we get to Paxos. Not once have we been let down on quality of food or service. Nothing fancy, it's good home-style Greek cooking but done well and served with an enthusiastic smile! We crave the Village Chicken when we get home, but can also recommend the soffrito and kleftiko. Highly recommended.
