Description: This is a fantastic busy restaurant well off the tourist trail. The boys don't advertise so, it's full to brimming point each night by word of mouth only. They are recommended in the Greek version of Time Out (Athenorema) and otherwise get occasional mentions on the Ithaca home website. We had the best night ever and really want to write a review for/about them but you don't have a listing. When you list them I know that the all the folk from our group would like to comment we were so taken with what they are doing. cheers paul

“Best place to eat!!”
Reviewed July 21, 2012

This restaurant is amazing, it is like a bistro type and all ingredients natural. We visited all restaurants around the area and the nearby villages bur Yefuri is the best for service, quality and well being. The setting is quite magical...especially at night time. I really miss this place when I came home!!

“A surprise”
Reviewed June 25, 2012

This restaurant is up in the hill village of Platreithias, it does not look exceptional, but wow it is! The menu is short but varied enough, the quality of the food and cooking is superb. Local ingrediants are used to produce wonderful results. Mark, who is the 'front of house man' plus waiter is extremely helpful and friendly. A visit here is hugely enjoyable and worth travelling from wherever you are staying. The only problem is that you will want to return again and again. Prices are the surprise - so reasonable.

“scrummy desserts”
Reviewed May 27, 2012

we ate at Yefuri several times last month....the great thing about the restaurants in ithaka is that there are a few now offering an alternative to moussaka and souvlaki...this is one of them!!.
the desserts here are an absolute standout..lemon tart with greek yoghurt springs to mind.
Didn't do the brunch , but heard about it. will definately try brunch when we return in the summer.

“Best brunch you will ever find in the island”
Reviewed May 14, 2012 via mobile

Open 3 days a week only. So grab the chance when you can.

I've only been each time for brunch on Sunday and it's just fab!!!! The fresh local eggs are made any way you want, from fried to poached. Their home made muffins are devine!!!

You will even find marmite!!!

The staff are just wonderful!

To be able to sit under an olive tree and enjoy your meal is priceless
