Hi there

There's nothing really in Argostoli that you won't find on your doorstep in Lassi. Try Phaedra, Nefeli's and da Veronica's, all on the right on Lassi main street as you face Argostoli and all recommended. Best bars in Lassi are the Trentis and the So Simple, both on the left as you face Argostoli, very comfortable, great ambience, good background music but nothing OTT.

There are two areas to look around for restaurants.

1) In the main sq and around the streets leading off, main sq is just inland from the Lixouri ferry quay. There are, or were, a couple of decent places, one roughly in the left corner on entering the square and another on the left on the far side of the square basic and largely greek punters.

Down a side street off the right hand side past the 'Captains'.

These were the ones I tried they were all OK.

2) Go 200-300 yds down the road towards the new bus station, about half way is a clutch of tavernas, near to where the old bus station was/market area.

Bars are largely greek oriented, as few tourists stay in the capital, some are on the same square to the right, just past the Ainos hotel.

It has been a while since going to Kefalonia so I can't remember the names.

In Lassi try La Gondola the Tiramisu is the best dessert we have had anywhere. In Argostoli for a very cheap meal with the locals and plenty of atmosphere there is a tiny Gyros place on the left of the hotel in the main square- great fun and tasty. There is a great bar on the main shopping street in Argostoli with a roof terrace where you can watch the world go buy- sorry can't rememer the name but it's near a little shopping arcade with stone effect walls and a book shop in it.

we loved the Mastrato Ouzerie on the little shingle beach (Mastrato beach.) Just go through Argostoli towards Katavothres and you will see the taverna just next to a little quay area.

The squid and octopus were amazing and the Greek salad passed my fella's very strict test: he judges the olives (must be fat and juicy) the feta and how much oil is put on it!

We've just returned from a week in Lassi (it's very hot there at the moment!). We spent half of our evenings in Lassi where there is plenty to choose from, but also enjoyed going to Argostoli for a bit of a change (it's only 5 Euros in a taxi). We enjoyed a place in Argostoli called Mythos restaurant - it's on Rizospaston on an opposite corner to Strada (which we also went to - it was nice, but not as good as Mythos). The menu at Mythos is very varied and is of very high quality and really good value. It's not typically 'Greek' but is definitely worth a visit. There are also a few bars along this street. Another good bar was in the Central Square and had pink furniture - the strawberry daiquiris were lovely!

The restaurants and bars in Lassi are more 'tourist oriented' which is fine but mainly they all serve the same food for similar prices.
