Great place to hang out with a cup of coffee and check your email. Reasonable prices and nice staff.

The restaurant is not far from the ferry to Lixouri. It has a nice terrace overlooking the road. We saw lots of Greeks visiting the restaurant. We found the waiters very friendly. One of them was very interested to learn some Dutch words. My wife tried the penne and I the pork steak. Both were very tasteful. We can recommend... More

We came here 3 times altogether, the restaurant is very nice. The starters we has were fried squid and anchovies and tasted very fresh. I had a sea bass and my girlfriend had the cod and they tasted so good, I tasted her cod and it was very tasty. The second night I went for the feta lamb which tasted... More

I tried "Penne with chicken, peppers, and Greek red saffron from Kozani". The sauce was tasty. Le penne were taking a bit too early from the boiling. The red wine was OK. La pannacotta not all to my liking. I prefer it firmer and compact. Nor bad, neither the best. The taste of it was OK. The waiting service is... More

Amplekai is at the end of the harbour just past where the ferry goes to Lixouri but it is a pleasant walk along the waterfront and it is worth venturing out of the centre to find. The food offering is typical of a Greek taverna and much like any other restaurant in Argostoli with a full varied menu. The prices... More

As I was alone, I asked for a takeaway. I have been coming back to this taverna every year and had enjoyed a good meal there back in May. However, this time I sensed that the atmosphere had changed. There were plenty of diners, but their eating habits were extraordinary. On a long table was a family with two children... More

Dont go there to have mousaka, try their 'specialties' - chicken with metaxa and cream sauce, fresh fish or lamb with feta and wine leaves (miam miam!!!) i had that twice, it was so good! Definitely go for this place, it deserves its ranking, you wont... More

Do not go there to eat mousaka and traditional greek food. This place has amazing fresh sea food, cooked with nice recipes and in prices that you don't usually find for fresh seafood in Greece. I'm saying fresh seafood again and again because I love it and you don't usually find it at such good prices and so tastefull. We... More

Sorry to differ with previous reviews, maybe we caught the place on a bad night? The food struggled to be average and the service was poor, and miserable. There were only two other tables taken so there was no atmosphere at all. As said maybe it was just a bad night, but we won't be going back!
