The staff were really friendly and helpful, I'm very indecisive and couldn't chose what to have. One staff member recommended something and I wasn't disappointed. My boyfriend was also impressed with his meal. The staff couldnt have been better ;) would definitely recommend.

The Barrel is located right on the water front and was our favourite restaurant in Nidri partially because of its location. It is family run with friendly service. There is ample choice on the menu. The food is well cooked and prices are fair.We can recommend the Lamb Chops. It does get very busy so don't leave eating too late... More

We had a nice experience in this restaurant. The staff is nice and the food was great. The problem is that is hard to find a table.

The Barrel was our favourite taverna in Nidri. It offered excellent food with a good variety on the menu. The prices considering it was on the main seafront area were very reasonable. The service was first rate. It gets very popular so it is worth booking a table in advance. Avoid eating here on Sundays as the Grreks descend here... More

Excellent family run restaurant with authentic Greek recipes and very warm and friendly welcoming atmosphere. The owner Fotis has always got a smile to offer, and himself along with all his staff cannot do enough for you whilst you are there. Give this place a visit you won't be disappointed and like us you are sure to fall in love... More

This is the best restaurant on the island of Lefkada. The owner is always welcoming you and very friendly. The food is really fantastic, fish and meat, is well prepaird. It's also the nicest place to sit. The prices are very good and low. I'll say: if you haven't eat at The Barrel, Nidri, you haven't been on Lefkada. Aart... More
