Looked like it was deserted and had just been left. No one was around at all but one of the previous reviewers said he had drinks there so maybe i was wrong. Not much to see just a wooden wheel and knowing the water there would end up at the other side of the island.

Unusual place easily missed, but well worth a stop, if only to have look at the way the architects have built what appears to be a nightclub, but I understand is a restaurant. There are no opening times, but I was told it to be a popular place for Sunday lunch, and I imagine wedding receptions. At least you can... More

I went here for my birthday and despite being in the middle of the biggest storm they'd had for 10 years I would highly recommend Katavothres. The location we fabulous and it was the hippest place we found on the island. The food was great, the service even better (maybe because it wasn't that busy?) and I can imagine on... More

We decided to take the 'scenic' route back after a day in Argostoli and stopped off here to see the interesting geological feature where the sea enters a sink hole; it 'reappears' at Melissani cave on the opposite side of the island. It isn't very well sign posted and there isn't much to see apart from a rather picturesque waterwheel.... More

Quite expensive, if you go and eat there. The food is okay, I would not rave about the culinary experience, and definitely very expensive. For coffee, or a drink its very nice. The views are stunning. You should visit it, purely because of the views, and the settings, but be warned its expensive.

Visit the water mill. Visitor centre is closed and the attraction is not signposted from the road. The water mill itself (where water from the sea 'disappears' - it ends up at Melissini Lake) hardly moves as it is gated off from the sea.

Lovely walk through the pine forest and wish I could have completed the walk of the Lighthouse. Even when the heavens opened it was well worth the visit.

Very nice plates, excellent service and interior decoration, in a beautifull place just above the sea.Sunsets are great there and after midnight it becomes the hottest club of the island which usually invites famous DJ's every Staurday! A place you must visit!

Visited here during the day (to find out where it was before a wedding reception were attending) and then in the evening of the reception. Great location and super food. Brilliant to see the sun going down with a cocktail in hand. See also the other reviews giving details of geographical/geological phenomena.

Area of Katavothres has stunning location right in front of the sea mills, just outside Argostoli. Where is one of the island's most important geological phenomena takes place: the sea water disappears into carsic holes in the ground and is transported to the east of the island.
