If you were preparing for a trip to Lefkada asking questions from acquaintances and friends who had already had a chance to visit this beautiful island, they have certainly recommended you not to bypass the most popular tavern in Lefkada, the so-called restaurant in the clouds.
This tourist attraction is called Rachi and it’s located in a hill on the west coast of Lefkada, in a small traditional village of Exantheia, about 20km from the capital of Lefkada, Lefkas. It is located at an altitude of 600m, surrounded by woods. Specific pleasure while staying in the restaurant provides a large terrace that, when time permits, literally dips into the clouds and makes you feel as if floating above the ground. The restaurant is especially popular among romantic souls, who are ready to wait for their place to observe the sunset for several hours in the peak of the tourist season.
The prices in this restaurant are not too high and the offer is solid. From Mediterranean through European cuisine, here you can enjoy traditional specialties prepared in the wood ovens, in vegetables harvested in the garden of the owners’ and in home-made wine.
The restaurant opens in late April and works only during the summer season, from noon to midnight.
If you are lucky enough to choose a right moment, the experience of watching the sunset above the clouds will undoubtedly be one of the most beautiful memories of vacation on this beautiful island.
