Love the guys here at this restaurant they can't do enough for you to make your holiday in kefalonia special. If you want good traditional greek food and a restaurant with a great atmosphere then look no further than the ionio in Lassi

Typical greek (as we live out there) was super busy so service wasn't great but the food was fresh traditional and came hot! Steak cooked to perfection and fish was fab! Just make sure you sit somewhere near the bar/pay desk then you can holler them over easier!

Good value for money, good portions and tasty food. Staff friendly and restaurant vary clean. Small downside close to the road but would eat there again.

This is quite a traditional taverna and we had an excellent mousaka here which was very reasonably priced. Would highly recommend.
