Description: 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.

Another very friendly and welcoming family run taverna in Lakka. In my top 3 tavernas in Lakka, due more to the atmosphere and the friendly lady who runs the place. The portion sizes are quite large and I would say it is more reasonably priced (averaging approx 40 euros for 3 courses plus a litre of wine for 2 people). Only beaten by Nionios and Pounentes !

I have been eating at Alexandros since he opened. It is tucked away from the main square but well worth seeking out. After being shown the kitchen and its dishes you'll find it hard to resist from homemade cheese or spinach or mushroom pies to the stifados, beef or rabbit, or kleftiko or his sirloin steaks on the bone
On top of this Alekko is a very meniable host supported by his family but beware of the generous supply of fire water he gives to guests

Absolutely loved this place - great atmosphere and tasty food. Enjoyed Lamb Kleftico, meatballs, rabbit stifado and beef pastisada here. You are welcomed into the kitchen and it seems a much more genuine welcome than the one at the infamous Nonios. The free cake is delicios too and all at reasonable prices in a lovely courtyard setting.

The restaurants here in Lakka are really competing for business now, in mid-May, as it is somewhat early-season.

Alexandros has the personality and he was standing outside greeting passers-by and encouraged us to come in to see the food being prepared, and quite frankly, once you see the food a mortal simply can't resist.

We had the pork roast, and it was a tender as it could be and was served with roasted potatoes and vegetables, and basted in a lemon-butter sauce. We also had the Lamb, and it too was tender and juicy, basically falling off the bone.

Alexandros is a hard one to beat with amazing food and a friendly Greek demeanor, and so I can highly recommend it.

A visit to this restaurant is a must if you are an aficionado of Greek cuisine. Not only is the food terrific but the overall exeperience is well worth a night out, and at a very reasonable price too, There is a large variety of dishes to choose from and you can see them all when you visit the kitchen, Alexi will describe each dish in detail so you can make the right choice. So if you fancy stifado, kleftiko, kebab, chicken, delicious vegetarian plates then Alexandros is a must.
