We visited Porto Nikiana restaurant at the end of our stay on Lefkada. We enjoyed stuffed vine leaves and seafood risotto. Amazing presentation & taste. Definitely a cut above the rest. Would highly recommend this waterside restaurant. Great service and host (and chef). We wish...the restaurant well.More

During our stay this year we visited the Porto Nikiana Restaurant several times and each time the food and service were exceptional! The chef really knows his way around cooking delicious food. Also we highly recommend the house wine from the local lefkas earth winery....We will definitely come again next season!More

I must say “wow”. Delicious and good looking dishes. We had mushrooms risotto and seafood risotto, fried squid and spinach pie. Add a great service and a beautiful view and you’ll have the perfect recipe. Enjoy it!

we had just picked up the boat from Pipis, on the first day, and fancied a beer, stumbled across Porto Nikiana, met Andreas, absolutely charming, suggest we came for food, which we did either that evening or the next. My personal favourite of all of...the eating out we did during our week, the cuisine is based upon Greek, but takes on the presentation and flavours of more sophisticated European food fusion. Met Jon the chef, who has worked on Greek MasterChef as home economist, he is the driving force behind the fusion food. I thoroughly recommend this placeMore

Super food, spectacular location right on the marina and good service. Slightly more upmarket menu than the usual tavernas but still friendly service and good value.

Fully agree with all the previous positive reviews. Fine Greek dishes with a special touch. For example the marinated sea bass carpaccio in a spicy, fruity (grapefruit) vinegrete was extremely delicious, as was the grilled tuna fillet. All ingredients appeared carefully selected, for.top quality and...freshness. The owner Andreas, who returned to Lefkas after a professional career seems to have fulfilled his dreams of creating a somewhat different Greek restaurant with a special touch. He has all reason to be proud of what he has created and we can only highly recommend his restaurant to anyone looking for quality food. Well done Andreas and keep up the good effort!More

It is indeed a top quality restaurant. Both service and food was excellent. The food is mostly Greek classics with a twist.

2nd visit to this restaurant, and once again we expected the high standards from our last visit. Tables were available straight away, and then we ordered. That's when the fun started. The waiter took our order for Mussels to share, and Lobster. He kept coming...with dishes for other couples and eventually brought our starter, and when we had finished took it away. He said to keep the table free as the main event was coming. So we ordered Lobster, and at 90 euros a pop this is not cheap. The waiter was very exited as he put our Lobster on the table and the look on our faces would have been priceless. We looked at him, then back at our meal, then him again. What had appeared on our plate was my worst nightmare. RED SNAPPER.... My other half was speechless, and i was gobsmacked. The waiter was adamant we had ordered this, and although he did volunteer to take it away and get a Lobster cooked, we didn't want to wait another 45 minutes, so we tucked into the Snapper. It was delicious and very tasty. They offered us a free dessert as recompense but that was it. It is a lovely restaurant and the food is delicious, but we had a comedy of errors which we did laugh about later on.. I would recommend but if you ask for Lobster... Beware the Snapper..More

We were two weeks in Lefkada and eat here at least 8 or 9 times. Everything was delicious, fresh and the service very friendly. Risotto with mushrooms, octopus and lobster just some of the highlights. Ah...fried feta cheese with carob honey also amazing. Prices were...reasonable for what they offered.More
