“The best on the beach front”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

Over several visits to Katelios we have found Medusa to serve the best food of the beach front tavernas, only Jerry's half a mile up the hill serves better. It was particularly good for the traditional greek dishes of Mousaka and the Kefalonia meat pie. We also found the house wine to be the best, although this year all the tavernas appeared to be serving decent wine.
Ilyas is a convivial host and his staff were polite and attentive.

“The best in Ketelios”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

Ate here a few times either lunch or dinner. Ilios is just the best, as are all who work there. Lovely, lovely people and good food. Nothing was too much trouble for any of them.

“Consistantly good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2014

Great to see The Medusa has finally made the TA list.

Had many lovely evenings here last summer during a 3 week stay.

Good menu, Greek, Grills & international. Fantastic salads and home made soups.
The fish is also excellent.

We are returning in a few days for more.

“Lovely beachfront Taverna”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

Great food, great service, and great location. We had at least one meal here every day for the two weeks that we stayed in Katelios at the Medusa Apartments. Great menu selection and not one bad meal. All were good. Staff were very attentive and made us feel very welcome. The restaurant is right on the beach, the perfect place to watch and listen to the waves lapping while relaxing and enjoying a glass or two of wine. We are looking forward to returning.

“Sea side Taverna in Katelios”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

Another of the sea side tavernas - and really it is difficult to separate most of them. They are all of an equal standard. We had the Rabbit and Beef Stifado. Both were ok but we made mistake of ordering a chef's salad to start and we were so full we ended up taking most of it home - which he was more than happy to do bringing 2 foil containers to the table. Nice house white wine and the only place we have found yet where they had proper wine glasses - a definite plus for us! No freebie at the end like some of the other tavernas. There was only one waiter (he is probably the owner) but he managed very well on his own. They have studios above the taverna - not sure if it is the same management though.
