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

Visited this lovely harbour front restaurant with my family. My parents found something they liked, which isn't always easy as they can be a bit fussy, and they were more than accommodating when we asked for something plain for my 5 year old son. However the waiter who was very smiley when we first walked in seemed to turn into... More

We have stayed 5 nights in Argostoli and visited this restaurant twice. The stuffed lamb is superb, as is the chicken in a local wine sauce. Quality of food excellent but only noticed on second visit that you get brought a plate of bread on arrival, then this is charged separately on your bill. A bit naughty

I had the chance to have dinner at ampelaki restaurant. This restaurant is simple, elegant and cozy. The plates are delicious, well decorated and well sized. The prices are not expensive. The owner is a young man with real love for this job. Well done. I wish I had more time at Argostoli…

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

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
