Dinner

Lovely service and good tasting food. Definitely good value for money. The beef stifado was absolutely delicious and we must have been lucky as my 3yr old was given free ice cream after her meal.

Lovely restaurant with good food and service. Even better if you can sit outside on the edge of the water (repair work should be competed August to the harbour).

A nice place on the front at Lixouri. Has tables overlooking the water. Lots of choice, maybe too much with average food at reasonable prices. The waiting staff were pleasant but not efficient. The owner tried very hard to ensure guests were happy..

Lovely restaurant with the added advantage of tables by the water which is great on a warm evening. It's across the road from the main restaurant, but the road is closed in the evening.

We regularly dined here in 2013. Then it was the best restaurant in town good food and friendly, hospitable. Unfortunately now the food is mediocre and so is the staff. They kept the complimentary starter and fruit desert.

Stopped here on a whim as it looked inviting. Greeted with a warm welcome. Masses of choice on the menu ranging from pizzas to traditional Greek cuisine. My fiancée and I both opted for Greek dishes. I chose chicken of the gardener, which was chicken breast in a cheesy sauce and my fiancée had the Greek chicken, which was in... More

We had an enjoyable meal at Maxim choosing from a variety of Greek dishes which were served by a very pleasant waitress who had a busy restaurant to look after but was totally in control and coped admirably. On the seafront in Lixouri it is worth a visit.

We pulled up at Lixouri in front of the Maxim just by chance after the drive from Katelios via Argostli. We didn't take the ferry because it was Sunday and the departures seemed erratic. In fact I'd recommend the drive just for the scenery, although the roads are under repair after last years quake. We liked the look of it... More
