A guide to the best restaurants in Lefkimi

The laid-back feel of Lefkimi means that wherever you choose to eat, it’ll be a relaxed experience. Most of the restaurants and cafes are concentrated around the canal area, with others towards the middle of the town. Despite being close to the coast, there’s less of an emphasis on fish and seafood, but most eateries still serve a wide range of traditional Greek dishes.

Friendly service at The Bridge Restaurant

Sitting by the canal with scenic views, this small restaurant boasts a prime spot in the town. The atmosphere is friendly, the service very accommodating and the food reasonably priced. The menu offers simple Greek cuisine, with octopus a particularly popular dish. The Bridge is open during the day and evening, so you can pop in for a quick lunch as well as enjoying a more leisurely dinner as the sun sets.

Traditional Greek menu at Cheeky Face

For a truly authentic Greek dining experience, Cheeky Face taverna is the place to go. Located by the side of the canal, enjoy dishes such as chicken souvlaki, briam (courgette and potato bake) and Greek salads, as you take in the views over the water. A charming feature is that you can go into the kitchen and see what you’d like to eat before you order.

A taste of Italy at Venus Pizza

If you want something a little different to the Greek food, head to Venus Pizza. It’s a hidden gem as it’s away from the canal area where most other restaurants are. All the family will love the generous portions of pizza and pasta, with more familiar food appealing to younger children and pickier eaters.

Food made with love at Giasemi

A small, family-run restaurant in the middle of the village, Giasemi serves a range of traditional Greek dishes. Choose from a selection of grilled meats, Greek salads, stuffed pittas, fried courgettes and much more. It’s particularly nice to sit outside on warm evenings and dine under the partially covered terrace.
