Visited on the off chance they would have a table after hearing how nice it was. We were lucky and I have got to say we were not disappointed the food was gorgeous. It was so good we booked again for our final night and the 2nd visit was just as good. Excellent staff and service too.

We enjoyed dining here several times. The food is just fabulous! Can highly recommend it. The staff are very smiley, and welcoming and in spite of being very busy (packed every night we dined, pre booking may be advised but accomodated us without and we only had a short wait sitting at the bar). A must eatery not to be... More

This restaurant has a wonderful ambience, unequalled views across the southern side of Kefalonia with a great view of Zakynthos across the channel. The food is some of the best available on the island and the staff are extremely professional and incredibly friendly at the same time. I have eaten there many times, and the whole experience is beyond compare.... More

Where do I start. Location, top of a roof overlooking the sea with views to die for. Service, exceptional and so accommodating. The first time we just turned up and despite being full they advised a 15 min wait sure enough 10.mins later we were seated. Food, just wonderful. My wife had liver which was unbelievable. So tender and tasty... More

It was our last night and we decided to eat here. Good decision as the menu is good with a decent range of food. Plus the staff are attentive without going over the top. I had a rib-eye steak which was well cooked and as I asked for and it must have been the biggest steak I have had in... More

Probably the most efficient restaurant in Louradata. The four and service are exceptional. We are here numerous times during our two week stay and really can not fault it! Even in a crazy sudden thunder storm!

This is a very busy place. So much variety on the menu, spoilt for choice. Very large portions, so if you love your food then this is the place for you. Service was quick and polite. The bar has every drink/cocktail you could imagine. Great for watching the sun go down but limited spaces for this so must book if... More

My second holiday to Lourdas and one of the reasons for choosing to go back was because I knew I could eat at the wonderful Olive Lounge. From the initial welcome by professional, helpful and charming staff to having the order taken by Liana everything is a joy. I have to say I always have the same dish as I... More
