We were in some other Kefalonian restaurants with excelent reviews and we were dissapointed. To our surprise the food at Taverna Faros has beaten our expectations. It's a real Greek cuisine with fresh and tasty food at reasonable prices. We enjoyed their mixed grill for...two, a meatpie and eggplants in tomato sauce and drank their home white wine. Everything was delicious. We were there twice and intend to come again to try their moussaka and pastisio. And last not least all of the Faros team were kind and welcoming.More

Traditional Greek Taverna tucked away up a steep road. Once you’re there the views are lovely. Good portions, friendly staff and great value for money. I recommend the mixed grill. We had saganaki, chicken souvlaki, lamb chops over our few visits

We are revisiting Lixouri area and a highlight is being able to try the hearty traditional food served at Faros. Excellent mixed grill and a whopper seabass! Meal with a view!

Faros is great Greek taverna. With traditional dishes. Everything is fresh, home made potatoes (chips). I don't even know how people say good is bad or not fresh?!!! We had been coming for two years to Cephalonia and few times visited Faros. Best seabream I...have tasted, prepared really well. Wine it's not bad for what you pay😉 Friendly staff and amazing views.More

We went there for a dinner during our holiday in kefalonia, as it was nearby our hotel and we were curious to try. The food was excellent, the grilled meat mix for two was just delicious and cooked perfectly, all the rest very good and...the atmosphere and the views as well. I recommend it for authentic Greek food experience.More

Fabulous restaurant, just outside Lixouri up a steep road off the main road. We dicided to give this restaurant a try. Are we glad we did...a gem of a place, so much so that we are going back this week without fail. We only wanted...the main course because we had a late lunch, but they brought us a small starter anyway. My wife and I had Sea Bream, I've got to say it was the best Sea Bream I've ever tasted. Our friends loved their meals as well. Give this place a try I'm sure you won't be disappointed.More

We were the only people there so obviously no atmosphere! The food was fine but nothing exciting. Most restaurants had very similar quite basic menus but very inexpensive. Around €6-7 for a main course. Local white wine very pleasant and generally €1.50 per glass. Large...beer €2.50.More

We didn't finish our food and left. Of course after paying. The ingrediënts were not fresh and the food was very bad prepared. Mashed patatoes cold, cod fish very dry and unrecognizable, egg plants fried directly without covering with flour. Very disappointing! It's a pity...because the owners were friendly and the panorama is absolutely beautiful.More

What fun to be presented with the menu in 3 languages, carefully written out in a child's exercise book! Service slightly slow but the aperitif was lovely (Ntakos) and the prices very fair. The food was cooked will and presented nicely. The staff were very...helpful on our arrival.More
