Modern Greek Food

Lovely little bistro cafe on the seafront in Argostoli, with a modern menu when compared to the many restaurants that serve the same 10 dishes night in night out.

Before I start I'd just like to point out that this place has a huge number of ratings here on trip advisor for such a small restaurant. After reading the first twenty, or so, it seems they have many 1 review users. I'm not suggesting anything but you do the maths. Here's why it's not 5 stars. The Waiter was... More

We had a great meal, Greek food done well. Good selection on the menu and reasonably priced too. Very nice restaurant inside, located on Argostoli's stunning harbour. The gentleman who looked after us, was excellent. I would certainly advise taking a trip to Ampelaki and I'd return in the future.

A delightful restaurant, with lovely home-cooked food, great wine and friendly proprietor. This restaurant was recommended to us – and we are so glad it was, as otherwise we might not have found it. It's located at the end of the waterfront (near where the cruise ships come in), opposite the sailing club. We visited quite a few times on... More

A very clean and overall lovely restaurant. The service was very good, waiters were attentive and friendly. The food was delicious. We recommend the halloumi starter which was in a honey and mustard sauce. So divine I'm craving it right now! During our week stay we tried 5 other restaurants and this was definitely one of our favourites. Highly recommend!

Without a doubt the best restaurant we went to in Argolstolion. The setting is stunning at the quieter end of the waterfront, and the food is outstanding. I can't speak highly enough about Ampelaki. It will be the first place we go if we return to Cephalonia!

The food is excellent! I went a few times and there wasn't one dish I didn't love. The staff is very polite and pleasant. The desserts are also very delicious. Definitely a must when visiting this beautiful island.
