Best breakfast in town.

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.

Went on our first night in paxos, hungry after a long day travelling, we waited ages to be served and then an hour for some food after ordering, during this time we got through 2 half carafes of red wine, that we didn't really want and a litre of water and then when the food came it was really average,...

The food is always excellent, whatever you have here, and George who actually runs the place is a great host. Village Chicken is superb.. The wood fired oven makes some dishes such as pizzas a bit special, too. Home-made Panna Cotta is the best on the island. This is our favourite taverna on the island.

On the first night we visited here, the manager greeted us and we had a very nice chat with him. He was a friendly man who served amazing food. Probably the best I had over the holiday. We visited his taverna again on the final night, again greeted in a friendly way, and had another chat about football!

We've been coming to Paxos for years but have only recently started eating at Pounentes. We should have come before. Great location and atmosphere and the best moussaka we have tasted; individually made, subtly flavoured and just delicious. Even with a couple of huge bookings (51 people arriving simultaneously) they made sure we were not side lined. Fantastic service. We... More
