Watching sport at the Yacht Cafe Bar and restaurant

If watching sport is your way of relaxing, then this seafront restaurant and bar is a great place to unwind during your holidays to Lefkas, as it has a flat screen TV showing sports in a number of languages. You can sit with a cocktail of your own design and eat a variety of club sandwiches, cooked breakfasts or locally sourced fish with salads.

Wonderful views at Stelios's restaurant

Stelios’s restaurant is famous for its mezze menu that allows you to sample up to 10 plates of food in one sitting. Many people visit this restaurant on a regular basis during their stay in Vassiliki, mainly because of the food but also because it’s found on the water’s edge. It’s a good idea to book a table in advance if you’re planning to enjoy a tasty selection of anchovies, hummus and other mini dishes.

Beachside at Vassiliki Wave

The unusually-named Restaurant Penguins

This restaurant specialises in seafood, but you’ll also find all your favourite Greek meat dishes here too. With a constantly changing menu, which is chalked up on a blackboard, you can choose from a selection of the local fishermen’s catch of the day. If it’s available, the swordfish comes recommended. Alternatively, the traditional moussaka is a menu staple, or just sit back and enjoy a glass of wine and some garlic bread.

The aptly-named Oceans restaurant

Enjoy your evenings with the happy staff at this port-side venue. Grilled tuna is just one of the dishes on offer at this friendly seafood restaurant. Situated by the harbour, with indoor and outdoor seating, you can enjoy a meal with friends or family in comfort here. The fish could be no fresher as it’s caught locally every morning.
