Good Food

We visited this restaurant on our first night in resort and received excellent service and attention including free cocktails at the end of the meal. Subsequent visits although the food was really good, the service was not as good. The owner/manager seemed to be very miserable and did not smile... read more

It was near the end of our holiday that we found Marinos and Mery at Captain Zorba's. We hadn't anticipated the desert that Trepezaki becomes off season, so it was a joy and a relief to discover an open taverna. More so when we found that the varied and extensive menu featured many local ingredients and traditional dishes. Everything we... More

Whilst we were in Kefalonia, my wife was involved in a car accident where she was hit by another car, which was the driven off. Another driver stopped to offer assistance,and he dealt with everything, including the Car Hire company and the Police. It turned out he was the owner of Captain Zorbas. When my wife told me the story... More

I ate here on my last day in Lourdas. I hadn't eaten here before because quite frankly some of the reviews on tripadvisor had been less than glowing. I'd passed the restaurant every day I'd been on holiday and the owner always said hello and was pleasant. So, last day give it a go. It's hard to give a definitive... More

We ate at Captain Zorbas several times. Although it was at the top of the hill, it was worth the climb. It's a family run taverna with a lovely feel to it. The food was wonderful, the owner made sure that he spoke to all the diners so everyone was made welcome and it was a lovely experience.

Tables were dark, food was not all that great, service was inconsistent. Needs some work but the chef just doesn't seem to have the skills to pull it off. There are plenty of other restaurants which are much better in the area. Best forgotten I think.
