The family running this restaurant were for many years on Lampi and I must say the food remains consistently delicious. Leonidas's marinated chicken suvlaki has no rival (anywhere) and let's not even talk about Mama Voula's dolmades! (You know you are on to a good thing when the locals put in requests for her to make them!) My family have... More

This taverna is located at the top of the road and has lovely views of Lambi below. We had horta, zucchini balls and chicken souvlaki - which was cooked fresh from the grill. Good food and service in a lovely location.

One of the best taverns I have ever visited! We tried the meat dishes. All of them were excellent! Do not forget to try the " Melitzanosalata". Just perfect!

We expected a nice dinner but we hardly eat anything. We were served last after the Greeks ( very unprofessional from them since everywhere we had always had a first rate service and most of all courtesy) the orders were unattended after waiting long we were told they had run out of meat! We were speechless and suggested driving past... More

Don't leave Patmos before eating here! We had a table outside with an amazing view of the sea at sunset. Breathtaking. And dinner was better than I expected. My husband and I are from the Midwest in the US- not a hotbed for fresh fish. So, we ordered the catch of the day...they brought us into the kitchen where we... More

Leonidas is popular not only with tourists but with the locals as well. That is because the food is consistently fresh and good. For example, the French fries are homemade, not as usual as you may think, the eggplant salad is made without the sometimes excess of mayonnaise and is healthy as well as tasty, and the zucchini croquettes are...

Leonidas tavern combines things that for other tavers seem impossible. As my rule of thumb I never visit taverns (or restaurants) with good view due to the fact that the food there is usually from mediocre to bad. Leonidas tavern exceeded my expectations and for sure is the exception for this rule. Food is good with good quality. Service is... More

We got there early and when we asked what the fish was that day, the server walked us out back where we got to choose the exact fish we wanted. Great preparation, lovely view of Lampi Bay. It's out of the way, but that makes it nice and quiet. Fabulous place!

Thank Rich E
