We were lucky in that Dimitri's was recommended to us and was very close to where we were staying in Paleokatouna, being a couple of minutes down the road by car.

We ate in and also had a 'carry out', so the option to get the restaurant's great food and eat at your villa is possible.

So, to the food. Great souvlakis, greek salad, aubergine dip, stuffed peppers... I could go on. Basicially great tasty food, that was excellent value. Great service, and a very friendly atmosphere. Plus, fab local wine - bring your own bottles for refills of very acceeptable red and white wine, for not a lot of money.

If you fancy a great meal and have tired of Nidri's glitzier establishments on the front, drive the 5 minutes out of town to Dimitri's. It's a local taverana that's great value and has no pretensions. You won't be disappointed.

Perched on the edge of the spectacular slopes of the Lefkas mountains overlooking Nidri, you can find this cracking little taverna. A small family run affair, with views over the whole bay. At only 3 minutes from Nidri itself where the prices can be overwhelming, this out of the way Greek taverna does not disappoint in the slightest. Frequented by locals and those lucky enough to have heard about it through the grape vine; this is a cheap yet delicious little place to eat, offering some of the more typical and traditional island dishes ant a fraction of the cost associated with the restaurants down in the bay. The roasted liver is simply ruddy lovely, if not the best that I have ever tasted - even my non- offal eating friend was pleasantly surprised. So if you want to step out of the main town and taste some good Greek cooking then I can recommend Dimitri's to you with no hesitation. Enjoy!

The views over the bay were absolutely fabulous. It's used a lot by the locals. First time we went the food was excellent, but second time three of us out of a party of five had upset tummies afterwards.

We searched quite a bit for this place, about which we've read briefly over the Internet. It is located 2-3 km outside Nidri, therefore it is advisable to drive there, especially as you need to pass some steep curves in order to reach it. We went there by bikes and must say, it took as a while until we reach the place :-) The effort however was wel worth it though! Great place, real authentic greek atmosphere and amazing food. The prices were more than decent (lamb ribs 7.5 Eur incl sidedish, 3 Eur 500 ml of local wine, 7 Eur chicken souvlaki) - for the two of us we paid a total of 28 eur and we were not able to finish everything. I liked most that it seemed less touristy and it had the feeling of familly owned business, with Dimitri (the owner) serving at the tables and his mom having her own dish in the menu :-) We highly recommend it, great place to see a nice sunset and spend the evening. Mind the fact that it opens at 18:30 though and in the evening it was quite crowded, we had to wait a bit until a table was cleared. Great evening, nevertheless!

A fine walk uphill, from Nidri to Paleokatouna, takes you to this gem. (Taxi or car - good parking below the restaurant - could also be an option of course.) Lovely food, reasonably priced and the view is wonderful. You will be well taken care of! We came here twice during our week on Lefkada.
