Restaurant details
Dining options: Late Night, Reservations
Description: "Layla's has occupied the same site in Kardamili for over twenty years. Layla is very old now but is helped in the restaurant by her chldren and grandchildren. The restaurant is in a lovely 19th century building and has outside seating on a terrace just above the sea - the sunset view is incredible. The terrace is topped with vines and surrounded by red blooms. The food is traditional greek with an emphasis on local classics; potatos baked with rosemary, chicken baked with lemon and thyme, spiced sausage, fried courgettes etc. I have been going to Kardamili for years and this is the best place to eat".

“Good food, stunning location”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

The food here is excellent - simple and well cooked. However, the best thing about Lela's is the location - I can't think of anywhere better to enjoy a meal and a drink whilst watching the sun go down.

“Lela's a great experience”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

Excellent location overlooking the coast at Kardamyli with quite a rustic feel with the grapevines. The food is traditional Greek fare cooked to a high standard with many delicious meals to chose from. The service is very friendly. Recommended.

“Beautiful setting and nice food”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

Beautiful setting overlooking the sea and the coast of Kardamili, with tables under the grapes, and candles at night.
Food is simple but one of the nicest in the village. Go early (before 20h), else the place is so popular that the food (fresh) goes quickly

“Definitely worth a visit”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

Ate here twice during our recent visit. The younger generation are doing a good job - efficient service and they are helpful in explaining the menu to us non-greek speakers!
The aubergine dip is yummy but watch out some of the portions are very generous.
Would definitely go again on a future visit.
