Good for: Bar scene
Dining options: Late Night, Breakfast
Description: We are an english-run music bar with a cosmopolitan feel. We are open from 11.30 am until 3 pm for snacks (last orders for snacks is 2 pm). We then open again at 8 pm until late. Situated opposite Santosun and Ankor Travel and just around the corner from the large bakery and car park on main street (not the beach road) in perissa. If you walk on the same side of the road as Bob's Bar for 200 meters, towards the big Perissa church and keep going straight (do not use the road that forks off to the left as that is the wrong way!) You will find us. We specialize in excellent music nights for all tastes, including rock, northern soul, motown, 1960s through to present day etc etc. We offer a relaxing atmosphere, freshly prepared cocktails, great drinks and idle chit chat! Policies: 1. We do not accept children. 2. We do not have the facilities to cater for large parties over 4 persons. 3. We do not serve food after 2 pm.

“Happy Days”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

We found The Lazy Lizard on our second night and are glad we did! We really liked having a couple of drinks here before we went out to eat. The bar is run by a British (and Aussie!!) family. Kim, Dave, Paul and Chloe were really friendly and helpful. Kim always stopped to have a chat with us and recommended restaurants for us to try. We also made a bit of history with them as we went round there to watch Andy Murray win Wimbledon (Kim shed a few tears of joy when he won!). We didn't try the Bubble Gum raki but tried the Spicy (Chilli) one - wow!!
We miss you all and good luck. We will try to get back to see you soon

“Lovely little place”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

We were staying less than five minutes walk from here. On the days we wanted something lighter to eat we ate here. Loved the tuna melt toasties and fries. Lovely staff and great value for money.

“Great New Cafe/Bar run by lovely English family!”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Having been to Perissa many times we were intrigued to see a new bar had opened run by an English family so decided to check it out. Knowing what state the pervious bar had been in they have done an amazing job converting it into the stylish cafe/bar it is now.
From the first visit we were taken with the family who are friendly hosts, knowledgable about the area and local businesses. The cocktails were fantastic esp the creamy lizard, but watch out for their home brew bubblegum raki it's weird and amazing at the same time and you could be seeing many lizards after a few of them!!!!
They have a great snack menu such as toasties, hot dogs, fries etc and also do breakfasts which people have been known to be waiting for them to open to have one! It's a great place to chill out relax before or after your dinner and we spent many a late night here chatting and laughing.
My husband was so taken with the lizard he is now the proud owner of the first Lazy lizard TATTOO!! But you don't need to go that far to enjoy a drink in the lizard!!
Thankyou Kim Dave Paul and Chloe for making our holiday so special. Keep doing what you're doing its top notch and we wish you every success for the future of the lazy lizard.
Hugs to Beardsly and new addition Wilson.xx See you next year. A & K.xx
