“Great food, great hosts, great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

Been using this taverna for several years now. Great location with views looking out over to Turkey in the distance, and when the full moon rises it can be spectacular. Have eaten there on my own and with friends and not been disappointed. Hosts Dimitris and Tonia are helpful and nothing seems to be too much trouble for them. If you happen to hit the place when there is a party going on be prepared for a late night!
When you are dining alone it can be a pretty miserable experience but here you are made welcome and made to feel part of the family.

“Scenic views with good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

We found this place after a great write up in the Rough Guide and we were not to be disappointed.

Though slightly tricky to find if you are not staying in the immediate vicinity, we were repaid for our search with incredible views over the beach and surrounding areas.

Most of the menu consists of the usual traditional bites that are found at traditional ouzeries in the Aegean, though we were both quite pleased to see a higher level of attention to details and at times some beautiful plating. In addition to this, there are also a few twists here and there on classical favourites that we simply devoured.

In short, thanks to the nice chef, good quality food, and moreover the memorable setting, Dimitris' taverna remains our favourite lunch place in Leros.

“Best restaurant on Leros”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014 via mobile

If you want the best quality food cooked by a top chef this is the restaurant for you, there is a variety of starters and main all at very reasonable prices. We had a table outside the panoramic views overlooking the bay just made the whole evening magical.

“Delightful meal with fabulous view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2014 via mobile

My husband and I had dinner here in May inside because it was cold. The restaurant has a terrace and an awesome view of the neighboring beach below us and out towards Turkey. The owner told us about the daily specials- all from the sea that day and we had a wonderful meal of seafood and salads. everything was fresh and delicious. even though not the peak season, the place was full of locals and a lively international set. We recommend this place highly!

“Dimitris”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014

Excellent food and views,relaxed surroundings, and a host who speaks excellent English, and even at the busiest of times socialises with his customers. Always one of our must visit restaurants on the island, which we will do on at least half a dozen occassions during our stay on Leros
