Looks aren't everything and you could easily walk past Gourgouris, it doesn't shout out and the menu is simple. It's only got about forty covers and the decor is at best rustic, but don't let it put you off. Indeed on the several times whilst eating we sat and watched people peruse the menu then walk away and I wanted... More

When we visited we ordered the meat meze for two people. We were so glad we didn't order a starter, because the meze was huge! It was really tasty and had a good selection of meat, salad, pitta bread etc... The service was friendly, the rose wine was very drinkable & the bill was extremely reasonable. We visited twice during... More

The food here is fantastic. Good prices and as good if not better than the larger tavernas in Skala. Not to be missed!

On our previous visit in October 2012 Gourgouris grill stood out as our favourite restaurant. On our visit this June we were not so impressed. Food quality & service was still very good but i have to agree with previous comments re size of portions which were clearly a lot smaller than before. Another distracting factor was the proximity to... More

Small and bust typical Greek family run taverna. Aphrodite, main cook’s wife, is still serving on tables now helped be her son and her sister in law (I think). Her mother in law continues to work quietly and tirelessly in the background. Some changes in the menu since 2011 and they now have daily specials. The homemade Kefalonian meat pie... More

This is always a must do restaurant in Skala and often more than once when we're holidaying. As usual we prebooked due to being aware on past visits that it gets very busy and booking ahead advisable or you may not get a table...........however no such worries this year as it was decidedly quieter than usual and this in July...

Ate here twice during our stay in Skala...the baked aubergine from the hot meze menu to start was heavenly and the grilled pork belly for main was equally great. Great house red also and ice cold beers. Highly recommended!!!

Gourgouris grill is the best place to eat in Skala, bar none. We were there back in 2007 and to this day, I have not had food as fresh and delicious as we ate probly 7-8 nights on our 14 night stay in Kefalonia. The gyros is out of this world mmmmmm with fresh tzatziki mmmmm Can't wait to return... More

Loved this tiny restaurant and dined there every other night of our recent holiday. There were always some Greek people in the restaurant and I always think that this is the best recommendation going. The menu is not the biggest but there is something for everyone. We always like to eat a Greek dish and they were always served promptly... More
