Very good restaurant !!

I can gladly recommend Ampelaki Restaurant ( should be spelled ABELAKI) Most of the customers were Greek Nationals and that reassured me it is not a tourist trap. Very tasty and very good service. The recommended Wine for the meal knocked us down but in the good sense. A nice farewell dinner.

My husband and I visited the restaurant upon the high recommendations on TripAdvisor. We ordered a nice bottle of wine, tzaziki and pita bread. Given their extensive seafood list, we wanted to order seafood but they were out of all seafood options except anchovies. To add insult to injury, a table of 8 across from us had fresh fish entrees;... More

Looking for somewhere to eat out of season in the middle of the afternoon we were pleased to discover this lovely restaurant. Friendly staff and a lovely meal was had by all for a good price. It was fairly busy with Greeks (I always think this a good sign if the locals use the restaurant) so it may be better... More

The seafood is simply grilled in a nice manner. It seems that the chief is more interested in meat and this is a real area for consideration. The lamb with feta and grapes leaves was just wonderful. The local 'secret' apple honey cake is better to be shared for 2 persons (it is not very large but very sweet).

Every year we visit Kefalonia and every year we visit Ampelaki since our first visit with the kids and we are never disappointed - Nikos is always so welcoming and remembers us (and more importantly our kids) every time. The food is lovely and we always enjoy our evenings - given our children are still so young, it's a treat... More

After waiting half an hour (without an offer of drinks or even some bread put on the table, which is usually the first thing to appear in a Greek Restaurant) my husband stopped a waiter and asked if he would take our order. The waiter replied "I'll be with you in less than a minute". 10 minutes later he returned... More
