Decent food - Disinterested staff

We visited the Rainbow only the once. The food was very nice. I had kleftico which arrived in a paper parcel and was lovely. The thing which annoyed me was the fact that as we ate our meal, the two waitresses sat behind us on a table in the centre of the restaurant smoking and checking their... read more

A lovely taverna on the beach front. The family who own it are lovely and very welcoming. It is nice and clean. The menu is very varied and there are prices to suit all budgets. Their white hosue wine is very palatable too !! A good place for couples, groups or families.

We love Rainbow. Five visits during our recent 14 day stay in Kefalos. It represents such fantastic value for money, the family are so friendly and welcome us back with hugs and kisses each year and the portions; well, they are big!! Often seems quieter than other places and I struggle to wonder why. My only thought is the rather... More

We ended up at the rainbow restaurant as a last minute choice. We were the only 2 people in the establishment. We ordered our food and drink and then waited for a good while for it to be prepared. No bread was provided whilst we waited which was a bit of a shame as it would of passed a but... 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.
