Amidst the whimsical narrow streets of Gaios, on Boikou square, next to the central square of the island’s capital, is Lampis’ tavern, a family business that is entering a new era with a total renovation and menu overhaul. With a renewed focus on seafood, it has been providing service with consistency and character for over 10 years.
In the calm, serene shade of the restaurant’s parasols, customers can enjoy a range of seafood dishes, such as anchovies fried or marinated, fried kalamari (squid), grilled octopus, grilled tuna and various shrimp dishes like shrimp pasta, fried shrimp and shrimp “saganaki”. It is safe to say, however, that the star of the menu is undoubtedly Whitebait “Salamostrada” with garlic, a famous local recipe winning over every customer. All this is just 30m away from the sea, with the scent of the Ionian Sea complementing the culinary delights on the table. It is the definitive Mediterranean meal experience!
Although Lampis has recently refocused its menu on seafood, its past and its roots in the grill house business are evident from the quality of tasty grilled meat also on offer. Thus it is able to satisfy any craving for meat and seafood fans alike.
Finally, for those of you that want to make a stop during their afternoon stroll in Gaios, Lampis’ tavern serves excellent “meze” to go with your ouzo or wine, before you continue your exploration of Paxos Island.
