Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I'm not sure why we hadn't been here before as it was recommended by several friends but we booked a table for Sunday lunch and hey presto, discovered a little gem in the heart of Katouna. First things first, make sure you find a car...parking space at the bottom of the village - it can be crowded and negotiating the small lanes may be mind-boggling. The walk up is lovely anyway. We arrived at the 'plateia' which was buzzing with kids and parents enjoying coffee in the sunshine and immediately felt at ease. Despite being early, we were shown to our table, asked if we wanted a drink and made welcome - it's happened before to us that arriving ten minutes early meant ten minutes outside, rain or shine but top marks to Mastelo, that was a good beginning. The menu is really interesting - we had to negotiate a bit to find which dishes we would share but we got it right. The silky smooth avocado tzaziki is a winner (even for my husband who doesn't like avocado), the grilled organic pork sausages with mustard sauce were amazing and the vegan baked cauliflower delightful too. The forest mushrooms tart was delicious and the lamb shank with home-made pasta fell off the bone. High quality ingredients worked with love, precision and know-how always equal good food. Presentation was great and service pretty good too. We were allowed a decent gap between starters and main courses, which was perfect. A good short but to the point wine list included some local wines. Being Greece, the portions are huge so don't do what we did and over-order! Still, it gave us an opportunity to try some excellent dishes and decide that we have to come back and try the rest.More

Amazing service and some of the nicest dishes I have tasted! We have been numerous times and have tasted most of the dishes on the menu, throughly enjoyed everyone one! Mastelo cheese is amazing as a starter and also the cauliflower. Mains lamb shank, beef...cheeks and the pasta dishes were some of our favourites. We cannot wait for the new menu next year!!More

Last night in Lefkada we decided to try Mastelo. I must say not the easiest restaurant to get to because we unfortunately took the old dirt road up the mountain and it was a rough ride. We later found out there was a fully paved...road that takes you there but that added to the adventure. Parking was also a bit tricky but we were able to park a short walk away. All in all it was worth it. The restaurant is located in a beautiful town square under the trees. Food was exceptional. Everything from the tomato salad to the home made bread to the eggplant were light and flavorful.. The lamb shank was excellent and the porter house steak was as good if not better than any served in a NY steak house. The staff was excellent and the owner Vasili was wonderful. Fine dining but with an unexpected warmth. Definitely a must do when staying in Lefkada. An excellent experience.More

Fabulous small restaurant on the town square. Lovely decor and a relaxed vibe, and NOT a beachwear place. The staff excel themselves, all are Greek and young and demonstrate that yes they do understand fine dining service and the art of hospitality. They are a...credit to the restaurant. We were here on holiday for a week so ate here several times, each time the service and food was impeccable. The menu is nicely balanced and whilst it is traditional local ingredients, they are twisted into modern eclectic dishes. Superb.More

We landed in Lefkada quite late in the evening and looked for a place close by to have dinner. Mastelo was only a few minutes from our accommodation, but after dining there, we would travel to the end of Lefkada for this experience! The food...was to die for and the service was impeccable. Some of the best food we have eaten in Greece (and we’ve eaten plenty!). It’s a modern twist in Greek food, but it still is true to local ingredients and impeccably executed. Our waiter was exceptional! Please go to experience Mastelo if you come to Lefkada!More

Amazing restaurant with pleasant atmosphere, discrete music and even better food. First of all, this is not your typical Greek restaurant. It is a more fancy (in the good way) type of place. The type ofplace where you go on a date or out with...your family for a cosy dinner. When you see how beautiful the place is you know you should not wear your beach attire :) The dishes are well thought out and you can feel the passion that has been put into the menu and in the cooking process. We enjoyed that we could see the chefs in the open kitchen carefully putting together all the dishes. We enjoyed the calamari, so tender (!) and beautifully cooked as well as the side baba ganoush. The beef - perfectly cooked, moist and as we requested, medium rare. Nice side of vegetables also. The cheese and tomato jam were not planned but we went with the waiter’s recommendation (thank you!) and we ended loving it. Interesting combination of taste and textures. Our only regret was that we were too full to try the desert. Big applause to this chic restaurant, the staff that made you feel welcome and cosy. When we will return to Lefkada we will be sure to make a visit. Thank you for a lovely evening.More

Situated in a small village on top of a hill this restaurant was a great surprise. You will unlikely pass by and have dinner. You should book it in advance. The dishes have usually a twist to the classical greek food making them very interesting....We found the starters to be more creative than the mains, although everything was cooked to perfection. The quality of the beef used for steaks was worth-noting. Service good as they have enough staff for the few tables. Wine list good but limited. Would definitely suggest this place and would returnMore
