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!

My boyfriend and I visited Ampelaki on our last day in Kefalonia looking forward to some traditional greek far before we headed off back to blighty. We found the restaurant on tripadvisor as it had good reviews, I am not wondering why!! It is a little out of the way, the surrounding area isn't particularly pleasant and you wouldn't walk... More

This is a nice restaurant that tries (and sometimes succeeds) to punch above its weight. As others have said the meat pie is good, and the pasta with prawns and ouzo is very good. We ate there a couple of times and didn't have anything bad and there were some very nice wines by the glass and, more generally, a... More

A traditional Greek restuarant where you'll find all your favourites dishes cooked to a high standard plus added imagaination. Have eaten here many times and will continue to go back. Most good resturants have a few items on the menu that you would avoid but everything we've eaten at Ampelaki has been delicious. We recommend the moist Kefalonian meat pie,... More

Stopped here for a coffee on my way back to Ship (Splendour of the Seas). Had a delicious latte, and traditional Greek cake - which was made from filo pastry, nuts and fruit and smothered in honey. Very sweet but Yummy. We were delighted with the friendliness of Maria who served us too. Worth a little visit if you are... More

Not gourmet but very good. Chicken in wine sauce was very tasty, although just served with sauteed potatoes and no vegetables/salad. One of those dishes though that more you east, the more you want to eat. My wife had lamb stuffed with feta which again was nice. Service was good throughout although we felt that the waiter was a little... More

Just had lunch at this lovely little restaurant. Fantastic grilled jumbo prawns and octopus. Maria our server was excellent in every respect. Really good value for money - would certainly recommend this restaurant.

Ampelaki is a little off the main dining areas of Argostolion. It separation from the hectic restaurant scene is one of its many charms. The menu is mainly a traditional Greek fare cooked to perfection. A range of fresh seafood was on offer, in addition to the quite extensive standard menu, the night we dined there. The dessert menu is... More

The food here is fantasitc and we have been going back here now for three years. It is one of my favourite places to eat in Kefalonia. Any meal on the menu is amazing. See you next year.
