Owned and run by Fotis and Alexandra, along with the friendly staff, The Barrel is a must to visit. There is an excellent and varied choice of food, well cooked and presented and is reasonably priced.

Trust me when I say that if you go to Nidri or if you're staying somewhere in Lefkada you definetly need to eat at "The Barrel". We went 3 year in Nidri and I can say that eating at this tavern was one of the reason to book our holiday there. The host, Fotis is quite an amazing guy, very... More

We were persuaded to use this restaurant because we had moored our yacht on the quay and this restaurant was not only a few yards away but also had fantastic trip advisor ratings. It was, not to put too fine a point on it, utterly dreadful. I ordered moussaka. It was swimming in grease, was cold in the middle, warm... More

This is a very popular restaurant and booking is advised. Food is very good and the service is ok. It has a good atmosphere as it is normally very busy.They do very good spinach pies as a starter.
