Description: Beach restaurant, situated next to the church in St. Pauls Bay , a unique restaurant offering Mediterranean/Greek cuisine. Open all day from 10am. The ambience in the evening is extremely romantic and intimate, candles adorn the beach all the way to the restaurant creating a beautiful atmosphere. Reservations recommended. Please note that this restaurant should not be confused with the Cantina on the beach opposite. We are situated next to the Church of St. Paul, we offer Gazebo double beds with curtains and wooden sun beds with waitress service to the beach, The car park above beach has ample parking for a large amount of cars and buses and is situated directly below the football grounds as you descend down the road towards St. Paul's Bay Church. Gazebo beds can be reserved in advance. Wedding enquiries for receptions are welcome. If you wish to make evening reservations please phone the restaurant directly on (0030) 22440 33000.

The perfect location, right on the bay, overlooking the lamp lit beach and a pretty church. There was even a wedding taking place on our evening. Perfect, so how come only 4 star. The beef fillet with pepper sauce let the side down as the sauce was boring, just like gravy. Also, not too much for kids, only thing on the menu was plain pasta, although they did offer up some half portions when pressed. This was our most expensive meal of the holiday at €83 (wine, 2 kids portions, 2 mains, no desert). They don't take credit cards, which is the second time we have been caught out in Lindos, but this time we had no cash and were not exactly handy for a cashpoint. Amazingly they just said bring the money tomorrow, no name, no contact details. Restores your faith in people.

Walking down the hill from Lindos village to Tambakio Restaurant is pretty much as good as it gets, I love the way they transform the beach from day to night time with candles along the beach, making you feel that you are about to have a very pleasant dining experience, The dining experience was very good, Food can't fault , if you go to lindos this should be on your list for dining, very good on the upper price range but the food reflects that...

First of all this isn't just a normal beach side taverna it is a quality restaurant. The location is second to none. It is right on the beach which is set in a fantastic bay. When we were here the flat calm water of the sea was about 3 feet from the edge of a few of the tables.

The food was fantastic, although the prices were above that of a normal taverna on a beach the portions are very large and the quality of food was extremely high.

This is well worth coming to eat here, you won't be dissapointed. I think the restaurant is open of an evening which would be magical.
