Great manager, service and food!

I used TripAdvisor to see which were the best restaurants here instead of just using the ones on the water's edge. I walked over to visit the restaurant and check the menu before booking the family for dinner and was greeted by the manager or owner (not sure). He took time to explain the menu and... read more

A good, but not excellent, choice. We enjoyed our traditional Greek tastes, which were honest and well made. Home cooked style with a great variety to satisfy everybody. The environment needs improving. If you are hungry you will love it. Would visit again.

Had a meal first night on Paxos (6th visit to Lakka) so tried this as it is Trip-adviser No1. There lies the problem. Very busy although staff were very friendly and efficient. Food was good - no complaints - but does not deserve the title 'exceptional' which is what I would expect from the No1 restaurant in Lakka. In my... More

We had excellent stuffed sweet pepper starters and very nice meatballs for the main course, the meatball sauce was especially good. The red wine was very warm which was disappointing. The service was attentive and the waitress was very friendly but the whole experience felt a little rushed as if they wanted to turn the table quickly which was unnecessary... More

Excellent food and good service. We visited 3 times and were always personally greeted by George who would keep a close eye and make sure that all customers were getting good service.

Pounentes' service is excellent. Waiters are very friendly, helpful and attentive. The food is excellent offering a very good choice of Greek dishes, exceptionally well prepared and presented. It all added up. To a very pleasant dining experience in the middle of lovely, traditional Lakka.

One of our favourite places to eat in Lakka where you get a friendly welcome and amazing food. Also if by chance it is raining you can eat indoors which we have on occasions in past years.

Situated in the square. We had 2 meals here and both were excellent. Service was very good and staff very attentive. Will certainly return on our visit next year

Like many of the previous reviewers, we have stayed in Lakka a number of times although never having previously crossed the Pounentes threshold. Having not been on the island for three years I thought it advisable to have a quick check on Trip Advisor and on the basis of the reviews decided to try Pounentes, from the moment I enquired...

Excellent food at a reasonable price. Service was a little slow but they were extremely busy on the evening we ate there. Staff are friendly and courteous.Would recommend.
