We drove all the way from Argostoli to experience Agrapidos located just beyond the Poros Port, tucked away atop a hill. Indeed, it was well worth the drive, even for a light lunch. We were greeted by Gerasimos,the owner, who took our order, cooked it for us and then served it- you cannot get better hospitality and genuineness than this.
The food was prepared with the freshest ingredients, olive oil and oregano that you can truly taste, and the meals were exquisite. We had an appetizer of grilled vegetables, and our main dishes were sea bream fish ( Tsipoura in Greek) , sardines and a fresh batch of greens
( "Horta") drizzled in olive oil & lemon. Out best meal in Kefalonia in years, even as a light lunch.
Gerasimos has worked here since 1981, where his late grandfather taught him the tricks of authentic Greek island cuisine. Gerasimos mentions that he is actually open all year round, so clearly the local love him as well.
Prices are also very reasonable and this was just an extra bonus.
As for getting there: it is atop a hill directly facing the Poros Port where the large ferries dock, so it is West of the port. Just follow the only road out of the port, leaving for Argotoli, going west. You can park at the port then walk, but it is a good 15 minute hike up the road going west- just follow the well placed "white with blue writing" signs for Agropidas. The first is large and located at the port and reads, "Agropidas, 500M" with the arrow pointing you to the direction. If you drive- 2 minutes. Again, just follow the signs and pass the steps on your first hill driving up, and then shortly thereafter you will see a sign to make a sharp right, then keep following the signs for Agropidas up a steep, but easily passable narrow road. Park anywhere on the side of the resto when you arrive on top.
Enjoy the fabulous hill top views of Poros Port, the mountains, Ithaki and the Greek Mainland; but of course, enjoy Gerasimo's warm hospitality and fabulous food. I am very glad we came here during the quit season, however, I am sure the experience is juts as exceptional during the peak season.
Enjoy this gem, especially during this quiet time of year. I have proved some pics for you to fathom.
