This is one of the best discovery on the island. Staff is really friendly and kind, food is amazing. Kefalonian meat pie is delicious and tasty (it goes great with Greek yogurt) and desserts are so amazing.

Great meals, one of the best service on the island, more than kind stuff. When I try to compare with rest of the tavernas, this is top of the tops. If you are nearby you have to try sea bass, sea bream and swordfish. Also, try feta cheese with honey and sesame. All of this is delightfully amazing. Recommendation 10/10.

The proprietor, Rosa, a lovely, welcoming American/Greek lady who makes the best chocolate/banana milkshake 'in the world' (my granddaughter swears to this and her grandfather seconds the sentiment). For my part The Best Pineapple Daiquiri Ever! Breakfast, lunch or dinner, service is great and food... More

Stunning food, typical Greek cuisine. It was very busy and very hot despite there being ceiling fans on but would definitely recommend! Lovely view across the road of the port.
