Lefki is a village in the middle of Ithaca and is renowned for it's long days and stunning sunsets. It's also known as the village that had not for over 60 years, had a restaurant or cafe. Spiridoula Paxinou, a resident of the village, opened this stylish, yet comfortable restaurant with generous seating inside and a lovely seating area on the terrace side, with views across the Kefalonia Strait and toward Kefalonia itself, to introduce the Modern Greek Cuisine to the island. Spiridoula is no stranger to running restaurants. Her parents, Yianni and Dorothea, ran a successful Taverna in Stavros for many years before they retired.
Dona Lefki's menu was designed by well known Greek Chef, Christos Tachias, who has worked for many years in Switzerland, France, the USA and of course in Greece, and is prepared daily by Chef Nikos Panaretos from Greece. Dona Lefki uses the Sous Vide technique of vacuum cooking meats. This method allows for the most succulent and tender dishes. Only Dona Lefki uses this method on Ithaca. All Dona Lefki dishes are cooked fresh at the time of ordering. Spiridoula Paxinou, owner of Dona Lefki, along with her staff, hope you enjoy the beauty of Lefki and the new flavours and recipes that Dona Lefki offers.
