This is quite a large Italian restaurant around the far side of Lakka bay - past the old school house and the internet cafe. It's not always open so don't bank on it.
we shared pizzas which were satisfactory but a little bland. The four cheese pasta was good and the bruchetta was fine
Favorite Dish: The four cheese pasta
Lovely little restaurant right on the harbour waterfront. There is some covered seating which you need if it gets windy. The staff here are lovely and appreciate return visits wiith free drinks etc.
Serves lots of pasta dishes - quite a few veggie choices
The vegetarian anti pasta was yum
Served a lovely italian liqour at the end of the meal - can't remeber what it was called but it tasted of sherbet lemons
Favorite Dish: The blue cheese tagliatelli and the pesto was the best we had.
The vegetarian anti pasta - vine leaves, courgette pie, griddled aubergine, sweet peppers, artichokes and stuffed mushrooms - great to share
Good scrambled eggs and they serve baked beans - maybe that's why this place seems to be popular with ex pats.
It's a good place for people watching - you may get lucky and spot some interesting goings on (yoga on your yacht anyone?)
This is an impressive restaurant set up in the hills and overlooking the beautiful and impressive cliffs of Paxos.
The menus is a little different from the traditional greek tavernas in town. The choice for vegetarians is limited - usually with only one option re main courses. you could stick a couple of starters together though The food is of good quality and the menu has some very interesting dishes so this place makes a different change.
It's also very much pricier than in Lakka- but the sunset makes it worth stopping here once on your trip - and it's very romantic. Everyone also looks more beautiful with the sunsetting glow on their face.
This place is popular with tourists so book ahead.
Favorite Dish: The veggie rissoto - mainly garlic and tomato flavour.
This is a lovely trendy young cafe bar right on the Lakka waterfront - you can sit on the seats in the corner near the bar or opt to sit in the canopy covered outdoor room - very pleasant and trendy. The cafe serves coffee, iced chocolate etc - cakess - lunctime snacks - wraps. We stopped here fro a frappe a few times and treated ourselve to a walnut and honey pancake on our last day - with whipped cream - the portion size was generous and you can satisfyingly share a pancake between two.
Favorite Dish: The pancakes - yum - especially thee honey which didn't taste at all like honey at home. Big enough to share between two.
I can't believe that we didn't discover this lovely restaurant until our third visit to Lakka- it's tucked away off the main town square but it honestly isn't that difficult to find. The restaurant seating is in a walled garden filled with beautiful plants and herbs which are used in the cooking. The restaurant is family run with friendly service. Lots of pasta dishes and even a curry night.
Favorite Dish: The Spaghetti Neopolitan is lovely, the garden salad is great with grated courgette. Roasted red pepper in balsamic dressing is a yummy starter - as is the brushetta. But my favourite dish was the spaghetti with blue cheese and mushrooms- my favourite meal of the whole holiday,
This restaurant is so popular that last September we were asked to share a table as the restaurant was so crowded. Maybe it's popularity has been increased by the you tube video showing the flamboyant Yannis showing potential customers all the dishes in the kitchen.
Yanni is amazing happy and friendly all season long and it's worth visiting just to meet him.
We weren't overly impressed with our meals - the spinach a la creme was really salty - whilst the stuffed peppers and tomatoes were really bland.
Favorite Dish: Lauren said her salmon was lovely
A lovely family run beach from taverna with free sunloungers for customers. This is a great place for a mythos or a frappe. The service is excellent - remembers how I liked my frappe - no milk and no sugar.
This was only open in the daytime - serving lots of breakfast and lunch options - the omeletes were a little pancakey - but very nice. Brilliant homemade chips, pizzas - and for those on a diet (me) tomato and cucumber salad - yum.
The family are building apartments behind the taverna - watch this space.
Favorite Dish: Omelettes - and home made chiips.
This is a lovely family run restaurant in a beautiful little Lakka square covered in grape vines and bourganvilla. You will be given a tour of the restaurant dishes by Alexandros. The taverna specialises in traditional greek dishes. Alexandros is great character and sometimes he is joined at the outside table by his friends to drink tsipouro which he frequently shares out with his customers - Ooompa. We visit this restaurant often - enjoying the feta and courgette balls - salads - spinach pie - the peppers stuffed with feta is lovely. All is served with either traditional greek style roast potatoes (in butter yum) or homecooked chips. You will also be served a complimentary small dessert or either baklava and greek yoghurt or loukoumades - which Alexandros describes as flour with honey. They are gorgeous.
Favorite Dish: Stuffed peppers - chips and the gorgeous loukoumades
Large restaurant in the middle of the village without outdoor seating area. Very friendly waiter - George who remembered us from previous holidays. The bread served here is baked in the restaurant in the outdoor wood oven. I ate spaghetti with chilli and garlic - yummy. The four cheese pizza was very cheesy - not the best pizza but the blue cheese was great. The baked feta as a starter was a change from the tradition greek salad.
Unfortunately the full menu wasn't available as the chef had changed - but not the menus - bit dissappointed that I couldn't get me courgette and feta balls.
Favorite Dish: The pasta dishes are good - particulary the garlic and chilli - cooked to your specified spicyness.
This was our favourite place to eat in the evenings. The walls had Fawlty Towers painted on and Dodos ?? looked and acted like Manuel from the said programme. Hilarious evenings. I don't even remember what we had to eat although I remember drinking retsina.
Very popular with all nationalities.
Unfortunately, both our long-standing favourite eating place in Loggos - the Kakarantzes Family Taverna and Yianni's - have now closed.
However, there are still 3 very good restaurants on the harbourfront. We think the best all round value and quality are at O Gios and O Nassos.
The small cafe bars do good inexpensive snacks and meals, like omelettes, gyros, etc.
Favorite Dish: Starter - Aubergine & Pesto - thinly sliced aubergines, stuffed with home-made pesto and baked in olive oil.
Main course - Stuffed Chicken - chicken stuffed with traditional greek herbs, spices and dried fruits.
Sticky Baclava or ice cream for afters at the Europa Bar.
Prices vary widely, depending what you eat, but an average meal for two with a litre of house wine should work out around 40 - 60 euros.
This is probably the most taverna-like of Lakka's restaurant's, very welcoming and friendly with excellent oven food and from the spit.
Don't miss Yianni's evening kitchen tour - he has turned this into a virtuoso performance.
Although expensive by most island standards (33 to 40 euros for 2 with a litre of house wine) very reasonable by Lakka standards.
Permission for photo awaited from Pollyanna1.................permission granted thanks y'all!
Favorite Dish: Chicken from the oven with potatoes, octapus or squid with pasta, pork with lemon sauce.....everything was excellent.
The after dinner tsipouro went down rather well too!
