We always go to the Santa Barbara restaurant a number of times during our stays in Kefalos, as it is too good not to! The food is delicious and the service is great. There is a new menu this year, with all of the old favourites and some new additions. The quality of the food is fantastic and I would... More

Nice welcome, end of season so loads of seats to choose from, quite a large restaurant, had a Kokkinisto as my main, very nice, After our meals, asked for the bill in greek, and the lead waiter complimented me on my greek, how quaint! but so insincere and shallow! Nice evening, nice meal, probably won't rush back.

Have eaten here on many occasions during our holidays in Kefalos and have always had a good meal. The service is excellent and the staff are very accommodating. Will certainly be back there next year

By the sea with food and views. You can sit upstairs when the weather is good and get even better views with your dinner. Best of both worlds.

Our second trip to Kefalos has been enhanced because Santa Barbara has continued to add to our evening dining. Quality and quantity have continued to be perfect. The flavour's are superb as are the range of dishes to tempt the palate. Thank you to Romos, Camilla, Harry and Ben for excellent service. M&Nx

Staff very welcoming and attentive. We ordered a selection of small dishes and had a mezze which I could have ate every night, and of course we had a great view of the sea.

We ate here twice during our 2 week stay. We could have eaten here every night but, as I have said before, we had to try most of the other restaurants. Santa Barbara is about halfway along the seafront road and has fabulous views of the bay and harbour. The staff are friendly and helpful although they were busy because... More
