Well what can i say, words fail me about Portside Restaurant, it is a great place to spend your evening with Rosa, Spiro, Bruno, Marieta and all the staff that work at the restaurant, they make your visit such a joy, they come and chat to everyone who come in, as well as giving a top class service.

We were staying in Lixouri but got the ferry across to Argostoli for dinner one night. Based on the reviews we chose the Portside Taverna. For a start, there isn't a nice harbour view if that is what you're expecting-it is on a road opposite the port which is obstructed by various things. Maybe we were sitting in the wrong... More

Nothing special really, average (to mediocre) food, average service, not sure why the rating is such, next to a busy street with shops, not even a view of the sea, it's still on the main street right on the promenade, but still no view, no ambience, just a regular place...

Great value and tasty. Bruno our waiter is the best! He suggested we take a walk after lunch along the bay and by chance we saw a turtle swimming long side us.

We had heard good reports of this restaurant and were not disappointed. As the name suggests it is situated by the water front and is a great place to eat, drink and watch the world go by. We tried the moussaka with a Greek salad and this was absolutely delicious, with the serving more than ample. The place had a... More
