“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2011

Lakis can be found on the Samos Town Road leading out of Pythagorio up quite a steep hill on the left hand side, it overlooks the Town but there is not much of a view because of the Buildings between the restaurant and the main town. My wife had Sole (Cooked to perfection,very hot and tasty) I chose Beef Fillet (Which was overcooked and dry) The service was good, Very warm greeting and at the end of the meal we were given complimentary water melon, The farewell was also very genuine

“Lovely family run restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2011

After struggling with finding a decent restaurant in Pythagorion we ended up at Lakis Taverna twice, where we were served by Mr. Lakis himself, who provided two wonderful evenings for us. He grows vegetables in his own garden, and the Greek salad was extremely fresh and tasty. The moussaka at Lakis Taverna is better from the moussaka served in other nearby restaurants, although it has room for improvement. The beef tongue was very nice. Before leaving we received complimentary ouzo/sweet wine and a delicious fruit plate, with sweet watermelon and figs.

“A Gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2011

Pythagorion has lots of restaurants, the ones by the harbour are especially popular and, in my experience, very ordinary. Lakis is on the road out of Pythagoria towards Samos town, it looks down over the Marina and is vastly superior to those places. The owner is extremely friendly but not obtrusive, the food is excellent and the view is lovely; you can look out over the sea and down into a bust Greek street. The meal was excellent and well priced, it was followed by a plate of fruit and the staff could not have done more to help us, even with our Greek pronunciation! A lovely place!

“Delicious food,very friendly and fair price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2011

This was our 6th trip to pythagorion. We ate in the lakis 3 times and every time the food was delicious, We were always met at the door with a welcome and george (the owner) was always waiting at the door to say goodnight when we were leaving. My wife who is an expert on lasange said that george's lasange is the best in greece (we have been to quite a lot of greek islands) after our meal we were always given a plate of fresh fruit and at least 1 ouzo. The food and the service were excellent every time and we always thought that the prices were very fair... It is a bit of a walk uphill but well worth the effort. We think it is the No.1 restaurent in pythagorion
