After seeing many positive reviews of this restaurant we decided to eat here on our first and last nights. Both times the food was lovely, on the first night my wife had the moussaka and I had the lamb wrapped in vine leaves. As it was the last week in October it was very quiet so it gave us more... More

Lovely restaurant/cafe right on the street near the ocean view. I ended up with an eggplant dish with tomatoes and garlic which was tasty, but my heart was set on Moussaka! Sat with a nice German couple who helped me with Euros and tipping! Again, smoking allowed in all the restaurants..and enclosed space was not fun. At least the door... More

We ate here again on our second trip to Kefalonia and once again the food was excellent.

We also had a... More

Visited this restaurant after looking on Trip advisor. We were not disappointed, very friendly and helpful staff. The meals we chose were well presented and excellent. We both chose lamb stuffed with feta cheese and wrapped in vine leaves. We both agreed it was one of the best meals we had had and in fact went back again on the... More

My husband and I chose to eat at this family run restaurant down at the waterfront due to the previous reviews. We were very happy with our choice. We appreciated that we were visiting at the end of the summer season and it was very quiet but our hosts were great. They made us feel very valued and nothing was... More

The Ampelaki has all the attributes of the very best type of traditional Greek taverna. It is very well worth walking the extra few hundred yards along the front from the centre of Argostoli, past the more "touristy" eating places. Family owned and run, the food is excellent and the reception could not be more friendly. They speak perfect English... More

My wife and I dropped into Ampelaki for a 'light lunch' when in Argostoli this week (we were staying in a different part of the Island) on the basis of its TripAdvisor reviews. We shared a starter of Tzatziki which was nice and creamy and then both had rabbit marinated in vinegar in a wine, tomato and garlic sauce which... More
