“Well worth a visit, especially if you are close by!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2012

Wonderful food....amazing fresh sea bass! My husband had beautiful chicken stuffed with mushrooms in sauce. Fabulous fresh salad! Other guests were talking about desserts but after our starters and mains we simply could not fit it in. The service was exceptionally warm and friendly, we will definitely be visiting again when we return to Lourdas. Apparently they do a tremendous breakfast too, they will cook something specific if you like which I feel is always a good sign.

“My favourite pizza!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012

We come here every year or they deliver! The pizzas are amazing and after a day on Lourdas Beach the very cold mythos go down a treat!

“Beautiful food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2012

The furthest restaurant to the East of Lourdas beach is this fantastic restaurant. Very near to the Ionian Sun hotel. They don't have much advertising to direct you but what fantastic food and deserts. Excellent staff too. Try the Baklava. Highly recommended!!!

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2012

If you're on Lourdas beach, then do pop into Aridas Palace-down close to the end of the beach road. This little haven has the most warmest of welcomes for you, and has a lovely menu from breakfasts to lunches to main dinners. Sitting under the vine covered awning out of the sun, we ate here a couple of times during our stay. It's a family run restaurant, with dad doing most of the cooking, and you might even be lucky enough to be there when he pops out from the kitchen to play his mandolin! You can be dressed up, or in your swim wear - either way, you'll definitely enjoy your trip to this little palace!! Will definitely be back!!

“Just ok, most average compared to others”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2012 via mobile

Not wanting to be too harsh as others rave about thIs place, maybe we just had an off day.

The waiter was lovely, but on his own so stretched as it was busy, which is a good sign.

The food was just ok, but we felt rushed. Unfortunately I found something unpleasant in my main dish so did not eat everything. It does happen, and I know others love it here, but was just ok. Shane as its a lovely setting, but please wear a hairnet!
