I've been coming Back here for ages & I love it. A small family resterante I,vet watched there children grow up & now serve you dinner. Best to walk into the kitchen & have aloof what's cooking. I don't bother with the menu as everything is explains in the kitchen. What's said in the kitchen stays in the kitchen!

My fiancé and I recently visited this restaurant on holiday in Lakka. We were very impressed by the friendly service and lovely setting but mainly the extremely delicious, homemade greek food! We especially loved the Rabbit Stifado. We returned a few nights later with friends, we had been that impressed. Would definitely recommend if you enjoy traditional greek food at... More

Amazing food, the staff ask you to go into the kitchen and see what are the specials of the day. So much choice and the wine is amazing too.

Lovely setting in one of the squares, run by a lovely greek family. The food is great, and they invite you into the kitchen to choose your dish, but the difficulty is what to have!

Alexendros is another Lakka restaurant that has not changed over the years. Same excellent food and service. Situated in a quiet courtyard covered by grape vines. You will be invited into the kitchen to assist you in your selection of dishes. All authentic Greek. Very friendly and recognised again on our first evening visit since last year. Hopefully be back... More

maybe this restaurant is better for its meat dishes as it has such good reviews. I had mussels, lots of which hadn't opened and the waitress just said that happens sometimes!

Loved the unpretentious ambience of this restaurant. Great traditional Greek food & service. Rustic charm abounds. A popular choice. Don't miss It.

Restaurant Alexandros in lakka paxos. Such a Greek experience. Chose from all the fabulous dishes in the kitchen.. Lots of vegetarian options with mushrooms, peppers, Aubergines. Sitting with the Greek music and the sound of all the arguing in the kitchen! Half a litre of wine for $8. You cant beat it!

Thank Kirragirl_12

I am surprised this Taverna has not been reviewed before as it is long established, always full and really good value. It is located in a small side street just behind the harbour road, next to Lisa's Place and the Harbour Lights Bar. It is a traditional family run taverna which cooks either fresh for you, from the Souvlaki Grill or from a number of pre-cooked dishes which you can view in the kitchen. The prices are really good too. And because it is always busy it has a good atmosphere - Ok the views aren't as good as the harbour side, but you can eat well here for value and then go for a walk and drink at the harbour later.
