We ate here more than any other taverna over our 2 weeks in Kefalos. Ramos and Harry are great people and can not do enough for you, the meat is all beautifully cooked on charcol so it has a great flavor. Plenty to choose from and the house wine isn't to bad either. Yes it does have the look of... More

My husband and I visit Kefalos year after year and Santa Barbara never lets us down, the owner Ramos is so welcoming and friendly. The menu is full of traditional Greek dishes and fresh fish... My personal favourite is the prawn saganaki and the souvlaki or sword fish... Looking forward to our visit this year!

Was looking forward to visiting Santa Barbara, passed it many times and it always looked inviting. When we went it was really quiet which probably did not add to the atmosphere in a decent sized place. Good staff, plenty to choose from on the menu. We chose stuffed aubergine and calamari starters, then kleftico and a pasta dishes. All 4... More

This restaurant was recommended to me by a family member… so glad I came now, we had bread to start with followed by mousaka, stifado, kleftiko lamb which melted in my mouth and lamb chops which were cooked on the BBQ plus drinks, when the bill came I was expecting it to be much more for the amount of food...

What a beautiful place this is, my favourite of my holiday. We were given bread to start, followed by a complimentary starter of stuffed aubergine. Our main meal was amazing, Tuna steak was brilliant. After we had paid our bill we were offered a liquer of our choice which was lovely. The staff were so friendly and did a great... More

I have been coming here for many years and the owner "Paul" as he is known to me as friendly, helpful and always makes you feel welcome anytime of the day.

Only visited the once as only around for a week but the food and service was great and good value, the waiter would say hello to us every time we passed so they remember your face.

Our first time in Greece this year, we were only 10 minutes away from the sea front. We visited Santa Barbara 4 times, we loved it that much. The food was excellent, we never had a bad meal. The prices were so good, especially for being right on the front. The staff were so friendly and would do anything for... More

First place we visited as it was nearest our apartment. Made to feel very welcome by the friendly staff, reasonable prices and wonderful moussaka. We both had starters, a main and drinks and totalled around £23. Great views over the bay as well. Would recommend.
