so so

Was ok, but I wouldn't go back. Worst possible pasta. Although I went in April, prices were extremely high. Many more options in the center of the island where there are Italian-cuisine places. Traditional dishes were ok.

Awesome food place, great fresh fish. I like to think you could get better service and maybe a cheaper feed, but nonetheless, I would recommend trying it out at least once if you visit Nikiana/ Lefkada and have time

Went there because it was the closet to hour hotel. The food was average, the serving slow and at more than 20 euros per head (with only 2 beers for drinks) inexplicably expensive, even for Lefkada.

If you want to eat truly fresh fish cooked in perfection accompanied with excellent local white wine and fantastic sides, then this is the place for you. We went there twice, ordered sargous, lithrinia and cod all of which were great accompanied by Lefkaditiki Gh white wine. You get to choose the actual fish you want, which usually varies from...

We ate tasteful seafood. The swordfish was fresh and in big portion while the risotto of cuttlefish was amazing. The starters was quite good. We enjoyed our meal at a very nice sea view area. The staff was polite and we were served quite fast. The cleaning was very good. A highly recommended tavern.

Classic Greek taverna where Greeks eat. If you're looking for authentic, local fare, go to Taverna Monas.

Up on the hill in Nikiana offering a nice view over the bay, we arrived here following the recommendation of our exceptional Greek host. Nothing outstanding in the menu though, and the highest price in the area for the fresh fish. Service ok, at least for Lefkada :)
