Lefkas Taverna

Lefkas Taverna

Lefkas Taverna’s passion is to tell their story through their food. Each dish on their menu is an ‘edible story’, inspired by a moment in Greece. Operating since 1991, this wholesome Greek restaurant has a traditional village vibe, and owner John Theoharis boasts that the restaurant serves the very same food he has eaten his whole life. For the indecisive diner, we recommend the Lefkas Legends Platter, a mixed grill consisting of lamb & chicken souvlakia, quails, lamb & chicken souvla, cutlets and tzatziki.
