The best steak we have eaten in Greece.

Even better than last year. Fantastic service and superb food. I usually try and avoid steak in Greece but it is superb here. A lovely location in the square in Lakka.

We had a superb meal here one evening - the garlic mushrooms were so, so tasty. The service was good with a charming manager. We went back for a second meal and this was very average - the village chicken was dry. It seemed so variable but maybe it was because it was the end of the season.

We ate as a couple two evenings ago. It was our first night in the resort although we have travelled the islands extensively. Good choice typical Greek fare which arrived speedily and was very tasty. Represented good value for money.

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 wine list and was... 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.
