Having lived in Greece for two years in the early 70’s and visited many places on holiday since then, after a ten year absence from Greece we came to kefalonia, an island we had not previously visited. It lived up to all expectations of Greek food as we remembered it including the friendly waiters and the ambience. It was always customary to ask to see the food on offer and they were happy to show us the fresh fish from which to make a choice. We had previously gone into another restaurant and asked to see their fish, which they refused to show us, so we left. We were surprised to read the poor revues. We have written a similar revue of another restarant in Argostoli. Traditionally fish was served on its own this restaurant added a nice touch of some vegetables round the plate of fish. The one we ordered was large and we shared it between us.

We had a late lunch that was very tasted with great service and fantastic views over the harbour. Then the heavens opened with torrential rain. Our waiter was amazing he fetched a umbrella and walked my husband to our car , that was so kind and we shall visit the restaurant again when we are next in the area.

Where else in the world can you sit and eat your breakfast overlooking turtles swimming in the bay?

Always visit this restaurant on our jaunts to Argostoli, a friendly welcome and great service.

Have done a lot of work over the past year to the waterside area, it looks lovely!

This place is for tourists or people who don't much care about what they're eating. The fish may have been fresh but it was thrown on the plate with a bit of potato and a wedge of lemon. The kreatopita was not traditional and just gross. How very disappointing. The best thing about this place was watching the turtles swimming close to us in the port. Wasted €50

Food is average to poor. Also they bring you stuff that you have not ordered to load up your bill. Expensive for what you get.
