This is a small Taverna in a very quiet picturesque location on sea wall before you get to the much bigger 7 Islands. Except for Sunday, Taverna Kanioria is onlly open in the evening. Run by father and son with chef who has been with them for 17 years, they seem to specialise in a fairly small menu of exceptionally... More

We enjoyed a delicious dinner without cars or hoards of tourists passing by. Really good food, friendly service and nice ambience at the promenade. You may find food a bit pricey, but the value for money is what counts and drinks are priced as everywhere on the island.

Our first experience on dining here was the night of a terrific storm, and we were so warmly welcomed that our wet clothes were soon forgotten; we were even offered towels to dry ourselves off. The food here is exquisite - a real foodie paradise - the subtle use of herbs, textures and spices was superb. We ate here 3... More

I cannot recommend this place enough - the food was simply amazing! We were in town for 5 days and ended up having dinner here three times. All the grilled meats etc are awesome, but it's the fish that stand out; we had sea bass, grilled octopus, an amazing octopus and pasta dish...all of it so, so good. the local... More

The place is beautiful. Ideal place for a quiet dinner. We have tried the fish but also various Greek dishes. They were all well cooked. Try the anise salad.The price was good.

Food was well cooked and fresh fish was delicious . Enthusiastic waiter who talked about the provenance of the fish . Enjoyed our evening with... More

We ordered fish and meat and the meat was cooked on the same grill as the meat. The meat smelt fishy and we sent it back to the cook. The waiter didn't apologize and said only " things like this happen". The restaurant charged us for the meat and we asked the waiter why he charged the meat since we... More

During our stay in Lefkada one ight we ate at this tavern. We ordered fish and a plate of lamb chops. About the taste, the fish was fresh and tasty but the lamb chops tasted like fish and we returned them, they did not say sorry when we returned the meat and they try to say excuses. Salads came fast... More

During our stay in Lefkada, we ate out every night, but the meal we had here was the best. I had the Squid Spaghetti (although it was actually macaroni!), and it was truly excellent. The best cooked squid I've ever had. Location is a great spot, directly overlooking the sea and the service was very good as well. Highly recommended.

Thank Mark B

"Kanioria" is a family restaurant located at the seafront.Nothing can be compared with dining at such a peaceful and beautiful place. Olive oil and fresh ingredients are used for our recipes. Try locally caught fish at reasonable prices here. House and regional wines are excellent. Dessert is always available.
