Georgos, the manager of the restaurant makes you feel at home from the moment you enter the place. His son, Kostas, is very much like his father. What's more, Kostas knows how to fix a decent cocktail. You can't say that of all the bars in Agia Galini ...

When it comes down to food you have an almost unlimited choice of classic Greek dishes. Name it and they've got it. Even if you're in the mood for something else, here you will find it. The pasta's and Salads are excellent, the portions are more than you can eat.

Our favorites are: Fried Zucchini balls and Grilled Octopus for starters. The Lava Special Salad is absolutely one of the best you can find here. Totally different from the classic Greek Salad. Of course you can have that too if that's what you want.
For the main dishes : Filet Mignon à la crème is top. Of course you should ask if you like your meat saignant, but if you do, the cuisson is perfect. The grilled Dorade is also great and so are the Chicken Rolls with mushrooms. The classic Beef or Rabbit Stifado and their Moussaka are full of taste.
Sometimes they have Pork Souvlaki on the grill. Love it !

The winelist is very good. You have a white or red Douloufakis Enotria that is great value for money. Why drink a caraf for 5 euro if you can have a nice bottle for 9 euro?
If you like a good wine, you've come to the right place.

At the end of your meal you get lots of fresh fruits for free. And of course plenty of Raki is served.
Sometime Jorgo gets carried away. You have to be careful with this homemade stuff .. ;-)

Since we live here all the year 'round, we tried most of the restaurants. Lava can be considered as top three in Galini as far as we're concerned.
