This tavern is located in Vatsa area, a few km outside of Lixouri town. The place was amazing, the sea always calm. Food, either fish or meat, was tasty, well cooked, in very good portions. The owner of the tavern, Spyros Antonellos, is the "soul" not only of the tavern but of all the area. A "must" visit.

Very nice shack located on the beach in the Vatsa bay. If you like poking your feet in the sand, and a couple of ducks strolling around you searching for food, this is the right place. Food is good. The sand would benefit of a little cleaning though.

Very friendly and cozy, I loved the decoration (made me think of pirates) the tables and chairs are placed on sand, and you're served by barefoot waitresses. The food was great, the portions are small and meant to be had in a meze or tapas way (several dishes on the table, shared) but better ask the waitress for details. Some sea-food (like squid) can be deep-frozen depending on season, so ask what they have fresh. Their menu changes depending on what the local fishermen have caught :)! We spent the morning/early afternoon on Xi beach and came here for a cool-down from the sun.
The way to this place is by following the road signs towards "Kounopetra" until you find a sign towards "Vatsa" From there on, just follow the Vatsa signs and the ones warning you of aligators and kangaroos!

When you arrive at the T junction at end of the road in from Lixouri, you have a choice of two great beaches. If you turn right, you will find yourself at the Spiaggia Taverna. After relaxing on the beach, you might fancy taking lunch here; we did.
The Spiaggia is a vast oasis of shade under several interconnected thatched roofs. There is a snack-bar counter where you can go up and buy drinks and snacks to take back to the beach, but sit down at one of the tables and you will soon be approached by one of the friendly waitresses.
Spyros Antonellos has been running the Spiaggia since 1997 and his food is rightly famous all over the island and beyond. We saw large tables of Greek families tucking into huge platters of fresh fish, octopus, lobster, you name it, all cooked on a special BBQ grill. We lunched on a huge bowl of tuna salad, followed by grilled sea-bream, absolutely fresh and perfectly cooked, tasting of the sea.
This taverna is a gem, one of those places that you always hope you will come across when in Greece. Don't miss it!
