In our opinion this is the best taverna in town. Very friendly service and excellent food, no matter what we ordered. We ate here several times, and my husband said it had the best house wine (red) in town. The Greek music (Monday's weekly) provided a relaxing and intimate atmosphere. We firest ate here on a Monday evening so the live music was an unexpected bonus. However, the menu on a Monday is more limited due to the higher number of people they have, and the services is slower, although we were not bothered by this as we had such a lovely evening.
Booked last minute online with First Choice, it was quite a bargain, so we had low expectations. In fact the reality proved very different - it was our ideal place - set in a quiet area with the most fantastic 180 degree sea view overlooking Zante - breathtaking. The studio was basic, but as to be expected in Greece - and we even had a shower curtain! (which is not the norm in Greece). The large electric fan provided relief from the heat during the night (apparently some other apartments don't provide fans or air con and had to be hired!) The kitchinette was basic, but was sufficient for preparing breakfast and packed lunches. Even though it is a quiet area, it is only a 5 minute walk to the nearest tavernas and shops. The Delfinia is surrounded by mostly olive trees, and only a couple of nearby apartments, with only occasional noise from people using the nearby pool. The layout was 3 units on each floor and because of the design the balconies were not overlooked by eachother, and felt very private too, and provided a small table chairs to enjoy the view and clothes airer.
We went to Lourdas for a week commencing 8th July. It was hot, probably low 30s. Even though I like the sun and hot weather we were definitely glad we took a beach umbrella to provide shade. It also meant we were saving money not hiring one every day, and could choose a quiet spot to sit away from the crowded 'lines' of beds and parasols. We also took the beach umbrella with us in the hire car when we ventured out and about and enabled us to enjoy beaches with no beds and umbrellas without getting sunburn. They are available to buy in local shops if you don't already have one to take with you, but I would highly recommend one.
Quiet and laid back, Lourdas is a place for people that like the 'real' Greece - not too touristy. My advice is to make sure you wander further afield than the main street for your choice of taverna, there are some real gems if you walk a little further. We stayed at the Delifinia apartments, and went both ways - to the Crystal Palace and the Olive Tree in Trapezaki direction, and downhill to Dionysos in the other.
