One of many of the seafront restraurants in Kateleios but I feel it had the best chef for fish. We had Bream twice and both times it was perfectly cooked and seasoned. We chose the fish meals that include wine, fish, vegetables and oven cooked potatoes and a greek salad. The sea view is tranquil and you can sit beachside,... More

Went here a few lunch times and the Tuna baguette was excellent, fresh tuna and warm baguette with a few fries, just enough. Also did toasted sandwiches and salads, all good value for money

The food was nice as was the view over the sea. A nice relaxing restaurant to sit and enjoy a meal and a glass of wine.

We ate on the beach front outside section of this restaurant (as everyone else was too) - inside the restaurant is very dated, but we had read a great recommendation in the guestbook at our villa so wanted to try it. There were four of us and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their food. We had fishermans pasta, chicken, kefalonian pie and... More

This is the first of the line of tavernas that face Katelios beach. The outside area is painted light blue and is clean looking. Sun beds are offered free (you are expected to buy something in the taverna though) outside on the beach although just here the beach is very narrow. We ate here both at lunch time and in... More

We were disappointed with the food at the Lighthouse. The kleftiko wasn't lamb on the bone, it was some overcooked lamb chops buried under some veg which were limp and unappetising. Some coleslaw garnish was also past the first flush of freshness, and the bread was stale. Tzatziki was good and garlicky. Service was good and prompt and we were... More

Went for dinner last night. I had swordfish and lemon potatoes, these are beautiful! Hubby had a mixed grill, again nice food. Not a huge amount but was satisfied. Nice touch at the end of the meal bringing a shot glass of sweet Greek wine. Would eat there again.

Although the food was ok here the surroundings are not the best. The restaurant looks tired as do some of their staff.

Excellent wine. Mavrosdaphne red ( never had this grape before) and huge menu. I enjoyed the calamari and sea bass.... eyes being bigger than tum, I picked the XXL sea bass which I eventually had to share with a grateful cat, with no room for any of the potatoes. Friendly and efficient staff. Lovely evening.

Visited the Lighthouse Restaurant many times on both of our stays in Katelios and it never fails to please. Friendly service from the family, good value and good choice. A free liqueur for us and a fruit cocktail for for the kids with the bill and even a complimentary bottle of fizz on our last night. Watching the geckos in... More
