Amazing location. Stoped for a quick bite to eat. Food was not the best and took some time. Dish was not hot enough. Expencive aswell. But the location and limitted supply allows for this to happened.

Down the shore on the Big Beach in Lindos, the Italian inspired Palestra Restaurant awaits with incredible, fresh seafood....one of my most unforgettable moments in Greece! The seafood pasta was perfection, and the risotto version is equally spectacular. Rosanna and her waitstaff provided phenomenal service, going above and beyond. We truly felt like family, and had to come back for... More

We had tzaziki, hummus and fish and it was OK. The waiters are very funny and solicitous, but the Price-performance ratio was not OK. We paid 65€ for 4 shrimps, 300g sardines, 3 slices pita bread, 3 spoons of tzaziki, 3 spoons of hummus, 1 beer, one softdrink and a small water. Sorry to say, but that goes better.

I am Italian and I have had lunch in this restaurant twice- I decided to come back the second time ONLY for its location: marvellous. Lindos restaurants are all "very touristy" and all the restaurants on Lindos main beach are nothing special in terms of food. (I have had my vacations twice in Lindos area this year) In this restaurant... More

As venues go, this one is great. Right on the beach and 20 yards from the sea. We used Palestra's a couple of times for lunch while on the beach right in front. A lovely Greek salad and chips. A little hiccup on the ordering but quickly resolved by the friendly staff. There are 3 restaurants in the same area... More

Went a couple of times there and found it a top place. Food is great, service very nice and the view is s o gorgeous you would already be happy with an old piece of bread in your plate. There is a brumisator working so as to cut the impact of the heat on the terrace. The place is at... More
