Was passing at lunchtime so called in by chance. Very glad we did! A nice welcome, good service throughout. The food was Greek but was more sophisticated than usual. Beautifully presented, and with more flavour than most other restaurants. The local lentil dish was superb, as was the frigadeli (liver morsels on a skewer, cooked perfectly). We ordered several "starters" to share, and didn't have room for the dessert, unfortunately. A nice view, and although next to the road it was very quiet. Highly recommended.

Since 1995,high up on the mountain top the restaurant "Rachi" offering an exquisite view of the Ioanian Sea is really enticing to those who actually wish to drink their coffee, savour our homemade delicacies,our freshly gathered vegetables from our garden, taste our local meat and enjoy our wine.
Rachi was reccommended to us as a nice place to go for my birthday by a lovely lady we met at Avali Cantine down at the beach nearby.
It didnt disappoint.
The restaurant is on 2 levels high up in Exanthia overlooking the sea. There are tables inside but the main event is watching the sunset from the tables out on the Terrace. We arrived after 6 but had no trouble getting seated on the Terrace as it is end-of-season.
It can get a bit cold but the waiters will bring you a blanket for your knees. I must have looked like a tough guy because my girlfriend got one but I didn't despite asking twice - lose a point..
The menu was not extensive with say 8 main courses and similar numbers of salads, starters and desserts on offer plus 1/2 a dozen specials. The prices were shocking. Shockingly cheap that is. Top priced main was beef rib at €14 & a greek salad (decent & very large) was €5.
The sun duly set with lots of nitwits taking (ugh) 'selfies' of themselves against the background of a spectacular Greek sunset.
Looking at other reviews it seems Rachi gets very busy in season with 2 hour waits for a table but fair play to the owners for doing good food at ludicrously cheap prices. With that view and location they could easily get away with another 50% or more on the price and people would be happy to pay.
Our food was pretty good with large portions. I had the stuffed pork steak from the standard menu (nothing special) and my girlfriend had a pork fillet dish with lovely sauce. Hers was nicer but she wasnt feeling well & wasn't hungry so I ate a lot of it - as did a couple of huge well-fed cats.
We did get the cocktail menu (which is where they make the money I suspect) but were too slow to take our order & missed out on €25 or so. The salad had already arrived so we got the house 'red' which was actually rosé (red being called 'black' for some reason).
So a couple of service fails but overall a good experience at a great price. €35 all in.

Make sure you come to this small sweet shop to try loukoumadaki which is very similar to
Turkish lokma. But they don't serve it in the syrip, instead they put honey or chocolate on the top and ice cream next to it. It's a delicious must!!

We have been there 2 times in 2 days. Mussaka is amazing, the pizza is very good. Wine 0.5 kg for 3 euro. We simply loved it, there is always full of people, but they will find a place for you. Easy restaurant but you feel they really care about you in there. Prices are very low, we recommend it!

Nothing better than grilled meat on charcoal. Traditional Greek food is simple. Done right it is tasty and generally healthy.
We had Greek salad, grilled peppers, lamb cutlets and pork skewers on charcoal. We were not disappointed. The lamb cutlets were tasty and very tender. Possibly the best we have had on our trip so far.
If you enjoy grilled meat dishes, you will not be disappointed at this restaurant.

Very nice time we spent here. The best tomatoes we had during our trip and reasonable prices. They don't cheat with advices like many others in Lefkada!

The tavern is in the centre of Agios Nikitas near to village beach. Space is wide and the staff is very helpful and friendly. This is all I can say good about it. Food was terrible. I was there with friends and from 5 dishes we ordered only one was good. The rest was disappointing. Octopus was burned and only with some salad leaves along, very small portions for all dishes. There was hair in chicken souvlaki and lamb stew :(. Pasta had no taste at all. At the end we did not received a receipt the owner came and asked what have we ordered, noted on a paper and made a sum. I will not recommend this to anyone.

This was our favourite restaurant in Agios Nikitas. We had lunch there most days. Great food, particularly the 'dishes of the day' on display at the bar. The staff were very welcoming. Prices very reasonable. Food very tasty, especially the sardines, meatballs, stuffed peppers and salads. We shall return in the future I hope. Also, the courtyard is a great sheltered spot on a hot afternoon, with a view out over the sea. ευχαριστώ from Ουαλία.
