This restaurant has its own farm, which produces its vegetables, and also its own vineyard for wine. Food was delicious and very reasonably priced.

This is a great traditional local Greek restaurant and frequented by locals. We throughly enjoyed the Greek local music and the local food. Would go back again.

The restaurant is accessible by car although the road is a little narrow. Far better to leave the car at the bottom by the sea and take the scenic, albeit energetic, walk. You will work up a good appetite for the meal that awaits and walk off the extra pounds afterwards. The menu is plentiful as are the dishes themselves.... More

Haver dined here 3 times of the course of 2 trips to Lefkada. Food and service consistently good and prices reasonable. Slightly out of town from Vasiliki / Ponti so it's much quieter and has amazing views.

My family and I dined at this taverna several times during our stay in Ponti. The service was great and the food was traditional home cooked Greek food at its best. I would highly recommend dining at this family run taverna.

We had high hopes about this place, because the view is just wonderful from the terrace, but the food was just average and we had to ask for the bill two times at the end. Still, no waiter came, after sitting there about 40 minutes, we found somebody at the bar section and was able to pay. I gave a... More

Dear Mezzi7 thank you for your review although we have to question the fact that you visited our restaurant. Our staff is polite and attentive with every guest even when the place is quite busy and there are no guests that leave the restaurant without a farewell from the staff. It seems also bizarre the fact that according to your... More

We had a good lunch there, with a great view of the sea. It was a quiet place when we were there, it was easy to find a parking spot and the staff was attendive and friendly. Even if it is a bit farther away up the road, just give it a try.

Thank Alex T

Whether you join us in the day or the evening you will be delighted not just with the traditional homemade Greek cuisine, but with the outstanding and exclusive view across Vasiliki bay. In the evening the restaurant comes alive and has a wonderful warm family atmosphere. With 30 years experience it is no wonder people come back time after time.
