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.

We had such a lovely time at Alexandros and we laughed the whole night long! Alexandro's was off that day so his grandchildren served us (here in the pictures above) and they catered to our every need and had a great chat with us after about their futures etc Will 100 % come again next year!

No holiday to Paxos is complete without at least one visit to Alexandros'. For us, its where we always start and end our holiday, plus a few extra visits in between. Found in one of the back alleys its location is cosy and perfect when the wind is up on the front of the harbour. Not that you should only... More

The food displayed in the kitchen looked lovely, lots of stuffed vegetables. The night we went the rabbit stifado on the menu sounded amazing! Unfortunately the rabbit was lukewarm, the vegetable dishes over priced and the chicken souvlaki was as tough as old boots. In writing this, it is still probably the best place in Lakka though! You may be... More

A great choice of fresh dishes cooked on the premises. No need for a menu; you are brought into the kitchen to see the range of starters and main dishes available. The food not only looked good but, more importantly, tasted great. The service was very personal and friendly and the prices were reasonable.

17 of us descended on this restaurant. A trip to the kitchen to be shown what food you can order is a must, don't miss it. 20 dishes of cooked foods all in pots laid out in the working kitchen. Brilliant idea and the food looked inviting. From vegetarian to proper meat the selections were plentiful I had a dish... More

Yet another great meal. Atmosphere and friendliness unsurpassed. Always very welcoming and the quality of food although simple is always excellent especially if you go and view the kitchen. It's a must if you visit Lakka.

We stumbled across this restaurant on our last night of our holiday. We were looking for somewhere quick and quiet as we had an early start the next day. We arrived at about 7.30 pm and were the first customers. The lady (owner?) was lovely and showed us into the kitchen to view all the available food and it all... More
