The unexpected Scandinavian touch is the owner who speaks fluent Swedish! Tasty meals, prompt attention to change of mind, fast and friendly rearranging of tables and chairs so that a large company could be seated together. I recommend Lela's Taverna.

Good view of med and tasty dishes. Very popular most of the year so you probably need to book. Some days there were (to me) somewhat limited range of dishes, although always lots of choice on veg.

The location is first rate. All tables have a sea view both to the harbour and a sunset (if you time dinner right). There are a few bars steps away to have a pre dinner drink and then join for Greek food at Lela's ....More

"Layla's has occupied the same site in Kardamili for over twenty years. Layla is very old now but is helped in the restaurant by her chldren and grandchildren. The restaurant is in a lovely 19th century building and has outside seating on a terrace just above the sea - the sunset view is incredible. The terrace is topped with vines and surrounded by red blooms. The food is traditional greek with an emphasis on local classics; potatos baked with rosemary, chicken baked with lemon and thyme, spiced sausage, fried courgettes etc. I have been going to Kardamili for years and this is the best place to eat".
