A Great Find

We stumbled upon this friendly restaurant on a previous visit to Skala on our last night of that holiday. Needless to say it was the first one we visited on this recent holiday and we came here 3 nights out of 7, the food was so good.

Amazingly good restaurant,calling it a grill house doesn't do it justice.We ate at the top rated Rania's which was excellent but Gourgouris gets the review as there is so much more to review!.They have an extensive menu,the emphasis very much on grilled meat but with Greek cuisine,fish and salads also on offer.We had the meze for two which was more...

When we don't go to Anemos we come here - very friendly - honest home cooked food - consistently good. We have found anywhere better in scala. Moussaka is good as is the gyros.

Lovely setting just off the main strip but wow was it worth it! Amazing starters, meatballs for my boyfriend and saganaki for myself, very big and very tasty! Then I had lamb souvlaki while my boyfriend had stifado. Lovely authentic taste, no rush and very reasonable. We will.be returning tomorrow lunch time for a takeaway gyros!

The best food I ate while on holiday in Kefalonia. I had the special of the day, stifardo, it was everything I know greek food to be, slow cooked and flavoursome. I also tried the lamb souvlaki, so tender and served with salad, pitta and taziki! Delicious!

Family run Gourgouris Grill is always first taverna on our list during our many years holidaying in Skala, Kefalonia. We are guaranteed the warmest welcome from the pretty Aphrodite and delicious home cooked food from her husband. Excellent gyros pitta if you want a snack and great homemade burgers. My husband really enjoys the mixed grill here (about €9) and... More

The Gourgouris Grill is run by a wonderful family who make you feel so welcome - the food is gorgeous - sometimes you wait a while at peak season - which is all the more reason to enjoy the atmosphere wine and food - a fabulous place -
