We visited here on the 10th August and it was absolutely beautiful. Setting is amazing with candles directing you down to tables laid out on the beach and an amazing view. All this with amazing food. Sure it's a little pricey but it worth it. Probably the best steak I've ate and really just brilliant. Booking is essential. Also the staff are friendly and service is good!

Tambakio is the best restaurant I have ever been to. The tables are literally on the beach and lit by candlelight. At night when we visited they had raked the beach and lit up the shore line with tea lights which added to the perfect romantic atmosphere. The service was attentive and friendly with lovely recommendations and always asking if there was anything we needed. The food was the best part of the evening it was absolutely beautiful and I enjoyed every part of the three course meal. I would say if you go to Lindos make sure you visit this place by night (its just as lovely for lunch but in the evening its extra special) book early and ask for one of the best tables and make it late around 9pm as we ended up being the only people left in the end which make it feel like our own little secret place and made it seem more intimate and romantic.

When you see the price for a pork 16 euros outside the shop ,17€ inside the menu and finaly the bill comes with 19 euros you understand what will happen with the rest of the items . For a bill of 41 euros they charged 45 and the owner had the attitude to tell me , why are you making such a mess for 3 euros ...! The guy lives in 20 th century where the customers where treated like animals grow up , you are a polution for Greek hospitality

Once you set eyes on the beach and Tambakion you fall instantly in love. It is pointless to try to describe it.
When we arrived all tables were booked however the staff managed to find us a table since we would not be able to visit it anytime soon.They were gentle and always at our disposal.
We ordered a salad with haloumi, octopus,squid,prawns and two main dishes. They were all delicious and while they were cooked a little bit different than what we are used to they were still ingenious.
The only drawback was a loud company and the fact that I found the wined offered a little overpriced.
Overall it is divine.
