Our party of 4 ate at Rainbows twice during our stay in Kefalos. The first visit can be described as Excellent and the second as Very Good. The portions are very large and some of the dishes were excellent, including the liver & onions, the kokkinisto, and the soudzoukalia. There was a good... read more

On the two visits to Kefalos the Rainbow stood out for both quality and quanitity. Everything freshly made. The outstanding experience was however the friendlyness of family who run this excellent taverna. Looking forward to seeing the family again in September. Alan and Kathryn, Sheffield.

We have been to Kefalos 4 times, and I would say that this is one of the best tavernas in Kefalos or Kamari. Good selection on menu. Beautiful traditional Greek food - e.g. both the Stifado and Moussaka have amazing flavours. Good prices, quick service, friendly staff. Can't fault it.

The staff were friendly however service was very slow and there was only us and on either couple in the restaurant at the time - it took 40 minutes just to get garlic bread! Main meals weren't good - food was cold and pretty bland. Would avoid this place as there are many other nice places to eat.

The portions were HUGE and although the setting is lovely, the food was OK, though nothing special. It is nice, but there are others whose food is a bit more tasty I think.
