Lefkada is a wonderful place for those who love good food and drink. Tavernas can be found in every resort and Greek cuisine abounds, offering a mouth-watering selection of fish, meat and vegetable dishes to tempt any palate. Why not try a 'meze' - a traditional way of sampling an array of Greek Island flavours at one sitting? Sumptuous locally caught fresh seafood is justly always a popular choice. In addition to Greek cuisine, you will find a range of restaurants to suit any taste. Wind down at an outdoor table, sip on an ouzo and enjoy the reasonable prices that the island has to offer.
