Tsoukaladhes, Lefkada 311 00
First night in Greece and we were determined to taste the delicacies of this country. At the restaurant we ordered a few things to start with such as Taramosalata, Tatziki and Greek Salad. The dips are a fresh appetiser to start off the meal. Following this we ordered Red Snapper, prawns and mullet . In this restaurant you order fish by kilo, so we all shared. The fish was smooth on the palette. This restaurant is known for having the best fish in Lefkada. The only thing I would mention is that if you want a side to come with your main course you must mention it to them, as they bought our chips, salads and vegetables with our starters!

Nadir, Lefkada 311 00
Famous for its no menu, the waitress asks you a few questions on allergies and intolerances and the rest is up to the chef. This concept is very original as you have no clue what food will arrive to your table, but I guess it keeps things interesting. We ate an incredible starter of seafood ramen soup with vermicelli noodles and fresh clams, prawns, muscles. This was followed by a fish steak called amberjack which was marinated and cooked with various spices, nuts and herbs . After this the waitress brought King Prawns sautéed in a beautiful spiced sauce and to finish snuffbox peach sorbet. This restaurant is exceptional and the quality of the food is phenomenal and out of all the places we ate this was by far my number 1.
Exanthia Lefkada, 310 80
Rachi restaurant is situated at a height of 600 meters amongst the mountains of Exanthia, leaving you with breath-taking views whilst enjoying your meal on the terrace. The restaurant is surrounded by a forest, which adds touch of tranquility. This is combined with an incredible sunset that will leave you speechless. The menu is simplistic; it evolves traditional flavors on a European base, such as meats and fish, combined with the Greek marinades producing a combination of fresh flavors. We ordered a selection of starters such as Tatziki, fried zucchini and traditional Greek sausages. For my main I chose veal fillet steak with mash potato – simple but on point.
8 Filarmonikis st. Lefkada Town
We found this restaurant whilst roaming around the little streets of Lefkas town. We chose this particular restaurant as the tables were occupied by locals so we thought it must have been good. The menu was lacking options but whatever was available sounded delicious. We opted for seafood paella and yellowfish tuna in Cajun sauce. The food was so authentic and full of flavors- my tuna fish steak must have been marinated in the spices for hours whilst the seafood paella must have been slow cooked to allow the rice to fully soak in the flavors. The pricing was very good with respect to the quality; I would say you could expect to pay 20 euros per head including wine, water and service.
