Good fish and very nice view

Good fish to be selected directly from the fridge, good entrees in a very nice and friendly location overviewing one of the best spot in Patmos

Don't leave Patmos before eating here! We had a table outside with an amazing view of the sea at sunset. Breathtaking. And dinner was better than I expected. My husband and I are from the Midwest in the US- not a hotbed for fresh fish. So, we ordered the catch of the day...they brought us into the kitchen where we... More

Leonidas is popular not only with tourists but with the locals as well. That is because the food is consistently fresh and good. For example, the French fries are homemade, not as usual as you may think, the eggplant salad is made without the sometimes excess of mayonnaise and is healthy as well as tasty, and the zucchini croquettes are...

Leonidas tavern combines things that for other tavers seem impossible. As my rule of thumb I never visit taverns (or restaurants) with good view due to the fact that the food there is usually from mediocre to bad. Leonidas tavern exceeded my expectations and for sure is the exception for this rule. Food is good with good quality. Service is... More

We got there early and when we asked what the fish was that day, the server walked us out back where we got to choose the exact fish we wanted. Great preparation, lovely view of Lampi Bay. It's out of the way, but that makes it nice and quiet. Fabulous place!

We were on Patmos for Easter, and Sunday afternoon drove to Lambi thinking to try Leonidas on the hill overlooking the beach. Alas it was jampacked with local families, so we had a good but unremarkable afternoon meal at the taverna at the beach. When we returned to Leonidas a few days later, we understood its popularity with those in... More

Leonitas overlooks Lampi beach and a bay that carries to the horizon with at least Ikaria, Lipsi, Samos and other smaller islands in the vista. It is a simple taverna with absolutely fresh and delicious food. Dolmades may sound humdrum but the fresh ones here are succulent. Likewise the tomato-caper-cheese salad which is utterly delicious. For fresh fish go select... More

This was our 2nd trip to Leonidas. This trip we wanted to show it off to our teen grandchildren. Once again it was incredible - the fish, the fresh veggies, even the "hamburgers" our teenagers insisted on! The "hamburgers" were actually glorified Greek meatball patties - but absolutely delicious. Our teens who balk at veggies at home couldn't get enough... More

Upon leaving Lambi Beach we were about to eat at the beach taverna but changed our mind as the place was filled with busloads of school kids. So as we were driving up the hill and we stopped at Leonidas. Everything about this place is just right. Family-run, the food is prepared with fresh ingredients. We were able to select... More
