Excellent restaurant

We found the food to be excellent. The pork tigania was quite different of the typical one, but really so tasty. The salad was large and generous (e.g. not just a couple of olives but plenty). The chichpea traditional sifnos dish was also very good as well as the sifnos cheese patties.

We were on our way to see Kastros when our rental car gave us problems. Luckily we were able to stop at Leonidas Tavern, which we had seen recommended in Lonely Planet. The setting is gorgeous and the free public parking is right next to it, so it's the perfect place to go sightseeing from. They had a special that... More

Was here for lunch just before taking the boat to leave Sifnos. Was with Greek friends who knew what to order. Excellent octopus, the most delicious meatballs and an aubergine pie I'd go back especially for. The lady who cooked served us a chocolate cake for dessert - I died and went to heaven. This place serves wonderful local food,... More

We were looking forward a lot to our Saturday night dinner at Leonidas. Too bad it was a huge disappointment, despite the numerous recommendations. Strapatsada average, salads ok, Mastello below average, soutzoukakia not nice. Big portions in general, but lack of quality.

Either you choose seafood or meat,the menu will not disappoint you. But what really counts as a life experience is the HUGE beef steak (stavlisia), which you should not miss if you are a meat lover. Only strong players can handle with this!

Everything we tasted was excellent, well cooked and homey. Don t miss strapatsada ( scrambled eggs and tomato cooked in a traditional greek way), xinomytzithra ( a creamy white cheese) , chickpeas ( the ultimate must of Sifnos) and the gigantic and excellent rib steak. Leonidas is the definition of greek taverna.

A friend recommended this restaurant to me as the best one around Kastro, so we gave it a try. The location on the rocky hill offers a nice view (from the tables inside, not the ones outside) and we enjoyed it alot. The service was good (of course it was off hours and there were only 2 tables apart from... More

My husband and I took the bus to Kastro from Kamares and we were walking around, not sure where we were going, though the views were spectacular. We found Leonidas after walking for quite a while and were hungry. We sat outside and at first were not excited by what we saw on the menu. However, everything we ordered was... More
