Lovely meal and hosts, we loved the meat platter and the fish bites, which were beautifully cooked and well presented. Definitely have to try out if you are in the area.

It was very promoted taverna, but it turned out to be a bad idea to go there. The service was awful, staff was paying more attention to their friends than regular customers. The food was not that good as promoted and prices quite high.

The food is very, very good. The only downside is that the place is being very crowded during the season and the service can suffer from this point of view. For example, we waited almost an hour for our food to arrive.

We came here as a "Top Choice" in the lonely planet guide, but oh! What a mistake, the food is not so traditional greek, as one hopes, the staff rather talking to their friends (who entered,saluted some guy inside, and were almost immediately served) we waited a good 20 minutes for the wine to come, and when it came it...

One of the best food spot i have ever been there! Excellent food, extra special services, an amazing location over the hill and good prices. Is one of the must to go at Lefkas island.

Great and fast service; amazing and fresh food (fish); lovely view of the sea. It was quite busy on the night we went (almost full) but we did not have to wait. I recommend the squid risotto, the calamari and the fresh fish on the grill! Perfect!

Minas was right next to our hotel in Nikiana and was highly recommended by our hotel. We were not disappointing as the food was excellent. The fish was very fresh and there was a big variety to choose from. Minas also offered some items that are not typical of a Greece fish taverna which was nice to see. The feta... More

On our way to Nidri we saw this taverna on the top of the hill and I thought it will be nice to stop for a meal on our way back to Agios Ioannis. It was a bright idea because the place is most frequented by locals(which means if the Greeks like it, then we certainly do like it more),... More

Not quite your traditional greek island taverna. A bit more gourmet with 'european' dishes. Food is good quality and very very good and tasty. A bit overpriced compared to the more simple traditional tavernas. But the portions are big!! If you are out for a treat for a special occassion go for it. Service is very good!! Nice big comfortable... More
