Local food and drink
There are a number of fantastic restaurants in Paleros town, a 30-minute walk away from the resort. With the walk almost completely flat and taking you along the water’s edge, it’s the ideal way to work up an appetite (or work off your desert on the way home).
In Paleros, look out for Sirtaki and The New Mill Tavern, which both have multiple five-star reviews. But whichever taverna you choose, make sure you try the wines from the local vineyards, and of course ouzo, the national aperitif of Greece.
For a taste of Ionian cuisine, the island of Lefkada has a number of excellent places to eat. While it’s welcomed more tourists in recent years, the locals in Lefkada have worked hard to maintain the culinary tradition of the area. The island prizes its self-sufficient agricultural production, known for its high quality and rich taste, and economic independence from the mainland.
Like all the Ionian islands, food in Lefkada is heavily influenced by Venetian gastronomy since its occupation. Each of the island’s villages has its own recipes and traditions, but you’ll find spicy sausages and salamis, the olive-oil based Ladopita pie and Egklouvi lentils everywhere. Delicious!
