On a gloriously warm May day, we enjoyed a fabulous indulgent lunchtime at this unpretentious place in Vasiliki. Our table legs almost feel into the harbour, as we tucked into excellent fresh calamari, red snapper, a huge cucumber and tomato salad...and a bottle of perfectly chilled Lefkada Hills rose wine, recommended by the friendly and helpful staff. A hugely enjoyable... More

We visited Penguins for dinner as a family and enjoyed the delicious food and great service. I liked it so much that I visited again for coffee. I loved the roses from the owner's garden which were on the tables.

Really good Greek food and the lovely Mary and Gary. We have been to Vasiliki many times and always go to the Penguin. Treat us so well, good food and we love sitting by the waterfront. Last visit was 2015 but hope to see them again soon. July and Barry. X

Just looking for a snacks, so had gyros which wasn't so bad. I assume that the son had been to the pharmacy for the owner, who sat at the table outside the restaurant, stuffing vicks up his nose and also picking his nose. Not something you want to see when you have just ordered food. Felt slightly uneasy. Also wants... More

This eating house is nicely situated on the waters edge of the town of Vassiliki. The food is first class and plentiful, the service good and the staff friendly. Under no rush or pressure to finish your meal. Just be careful - some of the tables are precariously close to the waters edge! I was there for four days visiting... More
