First night on the holiday - good experience.

Visited here on our first night in Kefalonia. The boss at the front offered us a -10% card which seemed generous of him. Once in we sat near the edge of the water, and was really pleasant. We were brought some bruschetta which was a nice touch. I had swordfish and my partner chose... read more

We had dinner here one night while in Lixourni. Nothing much to say. Standard Greek food at reasonable prices. No fuss, no innovation, but friendly and rather prompt service. Harbour view. Fair but far from stunning. Two course meal for two with some local wine at €30.

Very nice food and pleasant staff. T- bone steak was excellent. Almond pudding with ice cream also well recommended. They give you a loyalty card which gets you 10% discount on your third visit.
