Excellent service but the restaurant is quite hidden. Perhaps it would help if they had someone at the main road to invite tourists over. Maybe it would gain more visibility this way.

After many years of spending holidays at Ammoudara, we finally discovered the Lotos Tavern right at the beach this year. This experience was a blast and we wanted to have dinner again and again. Lotos is by far the best place to be if you...want to have good food, excellent service, cozy atmosphere and an awesome view. Can´t get better. Will be there when we are back in town.More

I have done an 3 week internship here in ammoudara. And i have been in this Tavern litterally every day. In the time the clerks Dimitri and Heraldo became my brothers. You have to go to this place!

Coziest restaurant ever. One feels like home there and has the opportunity to spend a good time with the most friendly Greek people from Greece ^^. Me and my friend went there everyday for a month and had the best time of our lives.

We went with my family! What an amazing place! The restaurant is literally next to the beach, so we combined perfectly our bath with our lunch and our dinner. All the plates we tasted were mouthwatering with huge portions and reasonable prices. The stuff was...very friendly and really kind! The kids played during our meal in their playground that is located really close to the tables for the parents to check if everything is alright! Also the atmosphere was unique! The sunset in the evening was truly amazing so I would recommend the place for a romantic early dinner or some drinks because they have a really good amount of tasty cocktails! They gave us a great time and for sure we will come back again! Lotos team you are the best! Keep going!! Thank you so much :)More

As far as I know Lotos Taverna only opens from April till October and for special occasions sometimes in the week-ends outside this period.
