The nightlife here is mainly taverna-based, apart from Nidri and Lefkas Town, where a few late-night clubs, discos and bars operate, but things generally close up by midnight.

Local Tavernas offer expensive, locally caught fresh fish as well as the usual cheaper Greek fare. Italian, Indian, Mexican and Chinese options can be found. Fast food is strictly Greek style, no McDonald's here. Plenty of sticky-cake shops offering traditional honey-soaked pastries.
