“Fabulous fish and friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

Ate evening meal here twice whilst staying in Katelios in June 2013. Lovely situation on the edge of the beach. The food is very fresh and tasty with excellent range of locally caught fish and other dishes, good local wines and attentive and friendly staff. Good value too.

“snatched defeat from the jaws victory”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

promised so much but delivered a dodgy stomach, we had mixed fresh seafood grill, now take into account my wife is a fully qualified chef and restaurant manager. tuna steak very black probably been frozen or left too long, fresh sole was battered and way way too salty, and looking at the sword fish on display you think you will get a big steak but end up with some thing looking like it came from a gold fish, but in fairness the zucchini and fried squids were very nice, but after half an hour of this meal i was on the toilet as was my wife for most of the night, again always busy, the staff a little over the top,and too quick service for my liking all a bit rushed, was really looking forward to this but left really disappointed,

“Great service, location and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013 via mobile

Being sat at the hotel on the last day of our holiday in katelios I decided to look at some trip advisor ratings and I am amazed to see Jerry's so low. We ate there twice out of our 6 nights and had an excellent time. A lot of the negative reviews seem to be from last year, certainly we found the staff delightful and knowledgable on the food offered. Cost is €20 pp for an excellent meal and lots of wine. It's a must go to restaurant for people wanting fresh fish, I don't eat fish but the fillet steak was cooked perfectly and was tender.

“Fabulous food with a view to match”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

Although we base ourselves in Skala we make a point of having at least one evening meal in Katelios. After the disappointment of last time (see my review for "Jerrys Elliniiko"- yes we made the classic mistake of going to the wrong "Jerrys" !) we decided to Captain Jerrys on the beachfront a try - a very good move as it turned out! After a very warm welcome then spending some time perusing the cabinet of fresh fish we chose our meals , sat down to enjoy the fantastic view (you are right on the beach here) and quaff some very enjoyable Rose ... all the red mullet and seafood/pasta dishes were excellent , service was discrete ,friendly and relaxed but efficient and the bill was, we thought, very reasonable. All in all maybe our favourite place to eat in Katelios and we look forward to going back next time we are Kefalonia :-)

“Very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

This is a very good restaurant overlooking the sea with an extensive fish-based menu. Very friendly, welcoming staff and excellent food freshly cooked. They also have delicious souvlaki for anyone who isn't a great fish -lover. Recommended.
