Seaside Restaurant is exclusive to Lefkas Weddings! Set by the water’s edge overlooking the glittering blue waters of the bay of Vlyho with a backdrop of the lush green hillside beyond. The sheltered bay shimmers in the sunlight and the bay is lit at night by the lights from the many yachts and sailing boats moored on its calm waters.
The restaurant was established in 1992 and is owned and run by Kostas Kavvadas. He has taken the taverna from its humble beginnings as a fish taverna to its current status as a sophisticated modern Greek restaurant which has been #1 on Trip Advisor for Lefkada for the past five years. Traditional home cooked dishes sit alongside modern Greek cuisine and are all hosted with excellent service.
Seaside has featured in the the Sunday Times Travel magazine and also on the Geni page of the luxury villa specialists, GIC The Villa Collection. New article in Meine Reise (My Travel) August 2013. Please browse our Trip advisor review page. Seaside has won Certificates of Excellence for the last four consecutive years.
The Wedding Ceremony
Your civil wedding ceremony is held on the terrace by the water with perfect views for your wedding photographs. There is a ceremony table with fresh flowers and a wedding arch which can be decorated with flowers. Seaside has a private jetty so you can choose for the bridal party and/or the wedding guests to arrive by boat if you wish. After the ceremony you can celebrate with your guests and serve drinks and canapes on the terrace and the shaded sofa area.
Your reception is held in the restaurant area which is shaded but open sided with beautiful views of the bay. The tables will be decorated with the colour theme of your choice and laid out with full linen, cutlery, glassware, fresh flowers and tea lights. There are columns to trail ribbons and space to hang bunting or decorations as you wish.
Your wedding meal is a seated buffet from a range of menu choices including many Greek favourite dishes with the options for a meze style dinner or more formal starters and main courses. You can choose from several delicious desserts or as Greek wedding cakes are of a dessert style cake you can choose to serve this later on in the evening after cutting the cake.
Once you have finished dining the tables will be moved to create an dance floor area and you can celebrate the rest of your wedding day dancing, enjoying a drink on the sofas, hosting Greek dancers or maybe treating your guests to a fireworks display. This choice is entirely yours!
Exclusive Hire of the Venue
For wedding parties of greater than 20 guests the venue will be closed for your private hire for the duration of your wedding ceremony and reception. This allows for the venue to be decorated and set out exclusively for you and your guests.
Small Wedding Parties
For small wedding parties of 20 guests or smaller it is not necessary to hire the restaurant exclusively if you prefer not to. You will enjoy a private ceremony and a reserved section in the shaded sofa area and the restaurant for yourselves and your guests throughout the evening and the restaurant will open as usual for reservations from early evening onwards.
