If you happen to be at picturesque Syvota and you think you’ve found the most beautiful balcony of the village, step up! This is Trocolo! Charming café-bar, colorful, well-decorated, with cozy arm-chairs and lovely view on the Syvota bay and the sailing boats. On the ground flour, you’ll find the “trocolo”, an old wooden machine for the pressure of grapes and the production of wine, which cleverly completes the interior decoration.
When night falls in Nidri the best thing to do is head down to the harbour area.
This is where it all happens, and there are countless places to eat and drink.
Our evenings consisted of going out around 9, down to the harbour, have a slap up meal and then stroll along looking at all of the luxurious boats.
On a few nights we did go to "Saloon Bar" on the main road.
There are so many restaurants to choose from, and I dont remember the names of them (again, a journal next time!), but we ate out everynight for 2 weeks and every meal was fantastic.
There is a small restaurant on the main road, which is Greek and run by a really cool guy and his mum - Very reasonable price wise, excellent food and service.
I like this place so much, for a bunch of reasons:
-Placed by the sea. In one of the best spots of the island for windsurfing. It also operates as a windsurfing club.
-Open all year round.
-Great views (sea waves)
-Swimming available before, during or after drink. (best when drunk)

Lefkada is not famous for an intensive nightlife, but this fact doesn't mean that there are not enough possibilities to spend your time during the night. Especially in Nydri and Lefkada, the capital, there is plenty of restaurants and bars. Also, a famous folklore festival is held every summer.
