As a group we were looking for a simple, light meal after all the big fat Greek meals. We ended up with a sizeable meal as we felt pressured into having starters and mains, which is ok. Unfortunately, after Paximadi, La Rosa, Nionios, this establishment just doesn't cut it. Not food wise and not service wise. Just a tweek of... More

We visited Lakka again this June. We decided to go to Pounentes for a meal. We booked a time with George on our way past in the afternoon. Later we returned and had a lovely meal picked from a selection of slow cooked meals inside. The service was superb, the young apprentice was great. We enjoyed it so much that... More

Very reasonably priced, great food. The stuffed peppers with bacon and feta were fantastic. Big servings and kids sized meals were offered at cheaper prices so excellent value for families. A large mythos is only 3 euros! Great service. We ate here 3 times in total, in our opinion one of the best in lakka.

Disappointingly, we thought the food was very average and overpriced. However, the local Paxos samphire salad was wonderful to see on the menu and tasted great!

Nice Taverna. We both had pizzas and a carafe of red wine. Nice evening. Would recommend for a casual meal on what was a very hot night

The food at this restaurant - especially the calamari , pizzas from their own clay pizza oven and their desserts - were truly outstanding. The chef must be very talented . George is delightful- attentive, polite and well informed about his daily menu and its changes. Just be careful of the blond waitress with the American accent! She managed to... More

Georgios runs this taverna with tremendous energy, enthusiasm and pride. We had to return to Lakka (lovely small village, a great bay to drop anchor if you are sailing, as we were) in order to enjoy a second evening of his delicious food. This place is popular, so worth reserving a table. Lamb kleftiko with roasties was excellent. So was... More

We ate here twice during our recent visit - to be fair, not many places in the village were open and the weather was foul, and on both occasions found the food to be excellent (albeit from a limited menu. In fact, on both occasions they were in danger of running out of food. They did say, however, that they... More
