What an absolutely gem of a place, gorgeous food with spectacular views, even more special watching the sunset; spectacular. Could have stayed there every day but then would not have seen anything else of the beautiful island kefalonia! A must visit if you are near Xi beach, so relaxed and unspoilt; take a visit, you will not be disappointed!

We visited Fishbones three times during our recent holiday. I can recommend the squid, sardines and grilled prawns. We sat on deck chairs and enjoyed our meal overlooking the beach. Staff very friendly and helpful. Very relaxed atmosphere. We love the place and will be returning on our next visit to Xi.

Lobster was 80 euros so skipped that ;) Sardines good and atmosphere great - al fresco with a ten minute walk on the beach and through the sea (around the point) from Xi Beach and Kefalonia/Apolonia Hotels

Food was exceptional with a 1970s blues ambience. Seating a little uncomfortable. Rather limited menu with daily changes.

This restaurant was a 10 minute walk down the beach from the Cephalonia Hotel where we were staying. It's an open restaurant overlooking the beach and is furnished with hammocks, small tables and chairs and a palm leaf roof. It has a very 'hippy' feeling about it so don't be afraid to go barefooted. And the food? OMG!! We ordered... More

We walked along Xi Beach to Fishbones and enjoyed a lovely Greek Salad which was huge and only 5 euros - great views across the beach and sea
