Ok, the location and everything is nice...but even if the place wasn't full we had to wait a long time to order and it took almost as much to get the food, we had fish and it was ok. It's on the expensive side, I wouldn't go back again.

However, despite the smart presentation, real tablecloth!, the food was rather bland and tasteless. Courgette and feta pie, lots of homemade pastry, but insufficiently seasoned, as was the rather tasteless Aubergine... More

We were recommended Pantazis by our hotel in Nikiana. I was not expecting much to be honest especially since it was our first day on the island but I was pleasantly surprised. The restaurant is located in Lygia Harbour (if im not mistaken) which is a few kilometers from Nikiana. It is the last restaurant on the strip at the... More

Ideal location - right on the wave!! Great dishes both meat and fish. Also good sample of local lefkadian specialities!! Dare and try the rice with squid in squid ink!! Delicious. At the end they treat you with a healthy portion of homemade baklava. Service is good. Mr pantazis himself is in charge - very very friendly. We went for... More

Situated in the small harbour of Nikiana, this taverna was mostly a disappointment. The menu has just a few choices, the food it's expensive and not very good. The service was not impressive either.

very nice view by the sea. We went there to eat fish but most the fish on the menu was not available. So we eat meat which was good but a bit expensive. Good service but nothing special..
