Best Dining Places in Lefkada
With so many places to eat in Lefkada, a list that recommends the best should be more or less from a local based on his or her personal experiences. After all, you will find endless debates among the locals in the island as to who serves the best meat, fresh fish or local specialties. So, from where to begin? Here are for me some of the best dining places in Lefkada I wouldn’t want to miss If I was on my summer holidays.
List of Recommended Places
Of course, a recommended dining place should combine good food with a beautiful view. So, in the first place of the list should be a family run cocktail bar restaurant with an amazing sea sunset view. Just drive from Agios Nikitas on the way to Drimonas village. However, in July or August you need to make a reservation first. Also, ambient live music from international artists take place on the decks around the pool, usually on weekends.
Another place is a family run seafront tavern in Nikiana’s port. The owners offer the definition of the Greek Mediterranean kitchen. In particular, here you can order all the classic Greek specialties like Mousaka, Pastitsio, Kalamarakia, Greek salad. Their menu offers a wide range of Greek local dishes as well.
If you like fresh fish then all the roads lead to Sivota fishing village. There, you will find quite a few family run fish taverns to choose. However, as always the best one is the oldest one with its tradition to fresh fish and sea food. Also, dining in front of the fishing boats in the beautiful Sivota bay is another reason to go.
On the contrary, if you are a meat lover then all the roads lead to Agios Christophoros village. A beautiful family run tavern with local meat and classic Greek specialties like kokoretsi and lamb chops. Also, the sea view from there to the bay of Nidri port is stunning.
Finally, one that many locals have always a good word to say. Another family run tavern right on the end of Agios Ioannis beach and very close by foot to your stay in LEFKASEABNB.
With all that said, we are looking forward to hosting you and making you feel like locals in beautiful Lefkada. The island of turquoise waters!
