Having just returned from Lourdas, a place I have been visiting since 1994, this place is lowering the tone of this beautiful and unspoilt resort, by attempting to turn it into the "Benidorm" of the Ionian Islands. We were subjected to the caterwauling of some dreadful Greek singer one evening until 2 am in the morning. The advertising of a forthcoming Karaoke evening, I am sorry but Lourdas attracts a more down to earth visitor who goes there for peace and quiet. Also I witnessed the incident a few years back of the owners treatment of the dogs which used to come down to the beach, and I can assure you that was not a pleasant sight at all, my friends and I were appalled, he thinks he can get away with anything because of his corrupt connections. This so called taverna should be avoided at all costs.
