I've been to Paxos twice now, having just returned from my second trip. I ate at Pounentes a couple of times on my first visit in 2012 and remembered that the food was nice and the staff very friendly - hence going back there on my second trip. My memories of Pounentes were reconfirmed. As a vegetarian, there aren't that... More

We have used this taverna several times over the years and it is always a pleasure. Right in the heart of the village with the life of locals going on around - children playing, people shopping. Where more pleasant to sit with a Malamatina (retsina) and enjoy excellent food and home-baked rolls.The service is run very effectively by George who,... More

I'd disagree with the bad reviews I've read for this taverna. George and his waiters - sometimes only one - are welcoming and attentive and the food is good, Greek home fare with some sophisticated touches. The home made rolls are good and tasty and, if you feel like a pizza, they're always well cooked and authentic. George is exceptionally... More

Just come back from Lakka and looking at some recent reviews for this restaurant I can't believe you ate in the same place. For me, it is one of the two best places to eat, along with Diogenis, in Lakka. George is attentive, chatty and welcoming. Yes, ok, sometimes if a boat mob are in it make take some time... More

Sorry but this was a big disappointment..We were in lakka for 2 weeks in june and tried this based upon reviews here. We fancied a pizza, something simple. We ordered 2 starters which to be fair were ok, sadly the bread rolls that george says take 2 hours to prepare will take you longer than that to eat, if you... More

We tried a new place next door to NIONIOS - it was called POUNENTES and we will NOT be returning! We thought at first it was going to be a nice find; the chap was friendly and chatty and recommended a very agreeable retsina. There were hot rolls (with butter) and our request for a tomato and parmesan salad was... More

My friend I remember you well (this is the waiter writing). You came last Saturday (14-06-14) and you with your wife were our first costumers that night. You sat under the pine three, (table number seven) and you had the retsina I recommended. I want you to know that I understand completely the reason of your review. Filling ignored is... More

Again, I would say this is really a three and a half star restaurant. We tried it as an alternative to Nionios, which is next door, but there wasn't really anything that stood out about it. The food was ok, but not exemplary. Service was good, although I do think the matre 'D lays it on a bit thick. Worth... More

We havent been to Paxos for a year so we are looking forward to having a meal at this restaurant again. The food is fantastic and freshly prepared, my Hubby loves curry so he has to have this dish at least twice before we leave. He says it rates as good as those in London. My dish has to be... More
