Food and ambience

Welcome to the "Pinewood". Located on the beach as you enter Nidri in Lefkada, the Pinewood creates the perfect summer backdrop. Ideal for all times of the day, start with morning coffee and continue to lunch. As the day draws to an end the sea and mountains are painted in the colors of the sunset, just order a drink from our extensive wine and drinks list and continue with dinner. A real journey of the senses, against a backdrop of the islands, mainland mountains and the blue of the Ionian sea... And, of course friendly, warm, unpretentious service... a unique atmosphere. Our delivery service offers an excellent selection of foods prepared in-house, as well as quality fresh meat and fish, fruits

Recommended by our rep and we had a great meal. The food is wonderfully fresh and charcoal grilled to perfection and the sea bass was very tasty. Great appetisers including taramasalata, saganaki and sardines. We tried the bottle of Rasputin recommended by the very knowledgable...owner and it was on par with a great Brunello. This is a great restaurant that opens out onto the beach.More

Consistently excellent! Due to Covid we were late getting over to our boat - but when we did we looked forward to visiting the Pinewood. Always great food. Friendly and fantastic service - including if you have a pre-dinner swim! Looking forward to our next...visit. Thanks again to Kostas and his brilliant team! See you soon! “Mr Prosecco!”More

Sea view, quick service and delicious food. I had the mixed souvlaki and cheesecake for dessert. Slightly livelier atmosphere compared to the more relaxed restaurants we went to in Nidri, but if you like that then this place is perfect!

Family of 3 and we had a beautiful evening meal here, right on the shore front. Beautiful setting. 3 different meals all delicious and service was great. Highly recommended that you give this restaurant a try, it is away from the main harbour strip but...worth the visit.More

Great restaurant! The food was delicios, we ate a lot of starters and we ve got some nice bread with oil and oregano. The lamb chops were very tasty. They also had very good wine and the personnel was very kind and attentive. It is...an elegant but not expensive restaurant right on the beach!More
