Great place to eat, but we think sailing holiday groups have a deal with them as they are always busier than their neighbours with large groups. The Galios and Dimitris Tavernas next door are just as good, but quieter.

Visited this restaurant as it had good reviews. Upon arriving, we requested a table by the sea front but was told it was reserved. However, nobody sat at it during the two hours we were there - very annoying! We gave our orders but the food was very slow in coming and when it did, our main course was only... More

Elena restaurant is right on the sea front at Vliho Bay, Lefkada. It gets quite busy in the evenings with a lot of guests coming in on dingy's from the many yachts which moor up in the bay. We ate here a few times during our two week stay because it has a relaxed, friendly feel to it. The service... More

Good food, lovely atmosphere, reasonable prices and good service. Motored over in our dinghy and good help mooring and getting ashore. Another evening taxied round the bay from the other side. 4 rather than 5 stars only because tables close together and on both occasions smokers nearby blew smoke in our direction spooling the experience - we are non smokers.

We had a good dinner with fresh fish and very tasty greek dishes. The white local wine is very tasty and must be tasted. We had a table at the front of the pontoon and the view was very beautiful. You must try the fish plate for 2!

We stopped at Geni (opposite from Nydri) for lunch one day and had some wonderful fried baby squid and a plate of sardines. Costas was so welcoming and friendly. The view across the 'harbour' to the mountains was lovely. We liked it so much we returned for our last night for dinner. The place was packed, with little boats coming... More

A charming Greek taverna with very friendly and helpful staff who are there to help you from the dingy if you arrive by water. Great views over the bay with lovel sunset capturing the mountains of Lefkas. Traditional Greek food. We had a very enjoyable evening.
