My wife and i stumbled across this place by accident. We were very hungry and decided to give it a chance. We ordered some bread with dip, salad, saganaki prawns, Octapus and calamari. For two people (with a toddler) we figured this would be enough food for lunch. The portion sizes were very small, We received one small octapus leg,... More

Kefalonia begins to close down for the winter towards the end of October but our visit to Ampelaki was refeshingly good at the weekend. The feta cheese with honey and sesame seeds. the Bourokakia (if I've spelt it correctly), and the fried Zucchini made excellent starters followed by chicken in brandy for my wife, rabbit for me, and a pasta...

I would highly recommend this place to eat while in Aargostoli as it offers nice quality food and high standards of service.The atmosphere is great in there and the decoration is nice.The prices are a bit high though.I would definitely eat there again and would recommend this to couples families and friends!

Well located restaurant on the way into the town from the cruise terminal. Very tasty local food and free wifi. An ideal spot for lunch, dinner or just a casual drink.

We were attracted to this restaurant by noticing the trip advisor logo and awards printed on the menu and we were not disappointed. The quality and choice of dishes was excellent and the waiting staff very polite and helpful. We liked it so much, we went back for a second visit during our stay in Argostoli. We would highly recommend... More

We had a very nice lunch there last september. All the Greek classics are on the menu. Because it was very hot that day we ordered "cold" food like salades and tzatziki. Nothing disappoints and was remarkable cheap. Service impeccable. So if your cruiseship docks in Argostoli have lunch here, as you pass it on your way to town or... More

Ampelaki is located on the waterfront, but opposite all the hustle and bustle (a few minutes north-west walking passed the Lixouri ferry dock) so it is a much quiter location, but really not that far away. The grillled vegetables starter we had was excellent, as were our main dishes that consisted of grilled prawns and a shrimp & greek feta... More

We ordered shrimp saganaki and fried anchovies to start, both were really tasty and generous portions. This was followed by the rabbit marinated in vinegar with tomatoes and garlic, which was simply stunning. The meat was ridiculously tender and the sauce was rich and had a hint of spice. My partner ordered the beef kokinisto which was cooked to the... More
