We know Laganas has some of the best nightlife in the Mediterranean. But there are some fantastic Laganas restaurants you may be surprised to learn. From your typical English restaurants and so called Cafe’s, to more local cuisine offering an authentic Greek and Mediterranean meal!
As you can expect from a resort that has been somewhat taken over by the party go-ers of the UK and the rest of Europe there’s plenty of your favourite takeaway food on offer such as McDonald’s and Subway. But below are some independent restaurants that should definitely visit.
Note: On the Laganas strip & the Kalamaki road there are plenty of other restaurants. You will be pestered by PR folk with deals such as 40% off, free drinks, free desserts and more. Just to warn you.
1. Cool Peppers
As soon as you arrive, if you ask someone where to go for a delicious Laganas meal, they’ll probably suggest here. Set along the beachfront, Cool Peppers offers some of the best food in the resort and some of the best views come sunset.

Another great pick and hot spot for tourists. Chevy’s in Laganas is a large, American style diner, with American style decor and offering fantastic American style diner food as you’d expect. Located in the centre of the strip it’s hard to miss, so stop by and grab a burger and a milkshake, or two.
3. Taso’s Place/ Taso’s Taverna/ Taso’s Resturant
Similarly to Cool Peppers, set on the beachfront Taso’s offers fantastic sunset views. Taso’s offer great local Greek cuisine and frequently noted as having excellent service combined with excellent value for money. Definitely try and visit Taso’s at least once when in Laganas.
