Ratings and reviews

Breath of Zorbas has been running as a beach restaurant and cafe- bar since 1978. With its one-of-its-kind location right on the beach it is a must- see spot for every visitor willing to discover Lefkada's hidden "treasures". It is family friendly with kids facilities available (playground and kids' menu) and a comfortable car parking under the trees' shade. By night, it is also a place to enjoy a romantic dinner under the moonlight and let your senses lose through culinary experiences. Easily accessible by car (well- protected from the busy mainstreet, though) or even by yacht or boat. Taste fresh seafood and traditional, home-made dishes based on local receipes, all prepared and presented

Grate place on the beach with view and grate food. The food has a verry good quality and is also delicious. The desert is from the house (watermelon) and at the beginning a cream cheese appetizers. I highlly recommend this restaurant.

we were in Nikiana for the second time in two years, on our first visit we only had the village wine by the carafe. We recommended this to the friends we were entertaining on our second visit, but this time we also had food, absolutely...superb, the service is top quality, the staff are lovely, the setting is out of this world, you can have your table as close to the sea as I've seen anywhere in the world. Given the circumstances of this year, I can also confirm that I never felt at all uncomfortable as the restaurant set out perfectly for Covid and the staff always wear masks at your table. The food is equally good, you must try the zucchini and/or tomato balls, these are my personal favourite but the rest really enjoyed sagnaki mussels.More

After an entire night of driving an half a day, this place was perfect for relaxation and good food and atmosphere. Greek starters, see food and some light vine near the see reduced my stress to zero!

The food was delicious and the staff's behaviour was really nice! They were polite and helpful! The prices are overly reasonable in relation to the food's quality. We ordered several dishes and paid 65 euros, our drinks included! Highly recommended!!

We celebrated my partners birthday while on holiday and after great reviews chose Breath of Zorba. Location is ideal, food was good and service was as well. Decent menu and nice wine options. We booked in advance and had to ask to sit at another...table as the one planned for us was on the end by all the beach goers/kids still enjoying the evening. They were very accommodating but a bit confused as to why we did not want that table when others, more suitable were available on the other side.More

We ate here twice over a two week period. The food was always good and the service was quick and friendly. There is a wide selection of fish and it's right on the beach which makes it an idillic setting.

I have visited this tavern every summer since 2015. The food is really nice and locally made. The beach where the tavern is at is very small and quite. You should pay a visit.
