We were a mixed age group from 4-54, had a wonderful evening. The food was traditional, very tasty and varied. Fabulous service with a smile and encouraged everyone to join in with the dancing ( but not pushy if you don't want to) We were asked if we would like to try anything different to the already plentiful meze and...

This is a fantastic restaurant located on the beach just outside Petra. If you ask for Meze you will get a lot of plates with small dishes of delicious Greek food! On one night there was too much noise for us due to a "Greek Evening". They served our dinner at a private table at the end of the pier... More

This is a great new addition to the beach below the Clara Hotel, with good access from the road to the newly cleared car park. Alternatively you could walk along the beach from Anaxos or follow the beach road out from Petra. We went towards the end of season when the weather was cold - temperature had dropped 15 degrees...

The restaurant is right on the beach with a lovely outlook. We went several times, once to a greek night where it poured with rain which was an experience (the staff made the chaoes really fun!) The food was excellent and the Keleftico was the best meal on the island! The staff are friendly and service is good, prices are... More

What makes this place, really is the... More

Went to this restaurant twice during my stay on Lesvos, and only a 20mins walk from Anaxos. It is in an amazing setting right by the sea. The Stamna, Stifado, stuffed peppers were all delicious & very good value.

The Traditional's new site at Limanaki has enabled Takis and KAterina to expand the restaurant while maintaining it's unique atmosphere and excellent food. Its new sea-front location has amazing views, especially at night when the lights of molyvos and Petra glimmer on the horizon. Purs magic.

Fantastic! Food was excellent, lots of choice and great value. The entertainment was first class. The young girls dancing were amazing as were the 'older' more experienced. Great location, so pretty, was glad to get there before sunset to enjoy the little harbour and walk on the beach. Lovely setting to eat when darkness falls. Hosts welcoming and friendly.

Tried twice to find this taverna, but failed both times, would be nice if on the signs in the village you put a map.
