Top taverna. Fish, mediterranean, greeke. On the hill, with splendid view of the gulf. The owner lady is fantastic. We ate very well and intend to visit again. Special attention was given to us like in family. Prices absolutely honest. Highly recommended.

We were staying nearby and would often drive past this restaurant and thought that it looked nice. However after our dining experience, wish we hadn’t! The restaurant was practically empty when we arrived which meant staff were kind of not doing much and standing around...and that is where the problem lied. The service was very poor for a restaurant that was in need of customers. Uninterested waiter, empty plates left on table and not collected, no checking how food was, felt like we were being glared at the whole meal as staff just standing around. I’m really not sure how this restaurant has so many good reviews. But my advice is avoid!More

Service was fast and friendly, there was a lovely view and all food was tasty and fresh- we had lamb chops and Pastitzio, and house rose wine. Nice to have an alternative to chips available with a meal as all other restaurants seem to only...serve chips- the mains here came with rice, chips or salad. Overall good value.More

The view is undoubtedly lovely. However after 2 weeks in Lefkada eating out every day, this was hands down the most disappointing experience. We arrived early with only one other table of guests. Yet it took 5 minutes before we were even acknowledged. Eventually the...young waiter silently and dismissively pointed us to a table without even so much as a hello or a welcome. The lamb with pasta was tasty; however, the 2 moussakas turned up stone cold in the middle, tepid on the outside. After asking for my food to be hot, it came back 2 two minutes later after a quick blast in the microwave. It’s put me off moussaka now! There was no live music or atmosphere to speak of. I’d like to be generous and think this was just a bad day, but I have to be honest to avoid others’ disappointment.More

We had a nice meal at Batzanakias, tasted the spicy cheese appetizer and the fish eggs spread. Both lovely. For the main course we had the cicken and the pork suvlaki. Although the portions were not as large as we expected giving the appetizers were...fit for 3 people the least we were not disappointed. For 27 euro you can get 2 appetizers, 2 suvlaki 500 ml of house wine and a bottle of water. We also received a small dessert on the house. The meal was tasty and the view is spectacular. It would have been better to have more options on the fish dishes but there are options from where you can pick. Staff was nice and helpful. I would recommend the restaurant, worth the experience, especially at sunset.More

The food was not so amazing, the portions were small. The meet came alone, without side dish.The white wine had a strange flavour.

The bellevue is beautifull. Good distamce between tables and good employers. It is a must have experience. The food is very good. They do not have many seafood.

Lovey meal at Batzanakias, little bit more choice and a little bit of a twist to the menu compered to other restaurants in the area. Worth a look.
