A West End institution where plates are piled high with pita, halloumi, salad and souvla.
When choosing a Greek restaurant (or, frankly, any restaurant) to visit, the crowd it pulls can be the deciding factor. So you know you're getting the real deal at Lefkas Taverna, which still manages to pack out daily after three generations of operation. While the longstanding West End spot has had some facelifts in its time, the home-style Greek cuisine that comes out of the kitchen has remained much the same since the day it opened. When you find something that works, right?
Start with a selection of traditional dips with pita, triple cheese croquettes and grilled halloumi. Next, move on to bigger plates of souvla, yiros and stifado, which is braised for five hours with red wine and white onions. With low prices, big portion sizes and a lively atmosphere, this spot is perfect for big group celebrations. Lefkas Taverna offers BYO wine and beer.
