We had some great food, some just fine. Atmosphere was stuning and Mr. Spyros was part of ""feeling good in Grece" feeling. During our stay was problem with paying by credit card, Also we haven t received any recipe / waiter was counting price on calculator where price was 21.60 for two but he asked me for 25 Euros. I would give him probably the same money |tip| but strange feeling that he asked me more than he should is preventing us from coming back to this beautiful place, because in this are are so many great places.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of Spiaggia Taverna. We were very sorry, however, that you were not satisfied with your experience of our restaurant. Firstly, I would like to explain about the credit card problem. We cannot always provide credit card facilities as we are dependent on the phone lines for the credit card to be processed and we have no control over the unreliable telephone system.
As to the second matter, we can only apologise. Of course you should have been given a receipt and it is NEVER our practice to ask for more than the bill. The waiter concerned has been asked to explain his actions and has asked me to apologise to you on his behalf. Our reputation is everything to us and we take this matter very seriously. We are sorry if this spoiled your visit.

We sat at a table by the bay, so we could see the ducks & the lovely view. The location is great - really calm & beautiful. The place was pretty quiet but the service was slower average. The food in general was average but quite low prices (3-7e per dish). We had calamari (I wasn't keen on their batter & usually love it in Greece), friend cheese (tasty), fried courgette flowers (mostly batter) and meatballs which needed a sauce. From the previous reviews I had higher expectations of the food. I would go - for the view & a cold beer and standard reasonably priced food.

Oh dear, my wife and I are hooked, we've been to Kefalonia 8 times over the past 12 years and only around 3 yrs ago did we find here, you can sit here all day with bare feet on the sand with the host's 3 ducks, and their dog wandering about all day keeping an eye on the customers. No music just like sitting on an infinity beach watching the waves and listening to the silence. Great food, great prices (one of cheapest places on the island we have found), shame it cost us 8.60 euros each single journey on the ferry to go there, but to go somewhere like this it has to be done. If reading this before you go, get off the ferry, follow the signs for XI beach and where the road forks left to XI fork right and follow the signs for Ag Nickolaous (later becomes Ag Nikolas), only aout 10-15 mins from ferry, you will not regret the visit, even just for the beach!

I cannot recommend Vatsa enough, it really is paradise, a wonderful spot on a sandy beach bay on the southern tip of the Paliki peninsula in Kefalonia. Time passes you by here, with sand underfoot and a beautifully crafted structure overhead, you can sit back admire the sea bay view in front of you whilst enjoying the wonderful simple delicious organic home grown food and perfectly grilled fresh local fish from the olive wood barbeque. The atmosphere is laid back, relaxed and super friendly. The owner Spyro is the perfect host, making you feel right at home. You can spend hours here relaxing on the beach under bamboo shades, taking a dip in the crystal clear blue sea and then when ready moving to the cluster of tables and chairs under the welcome shade of the restaurant itself, sipping local wine and enjoying delicious home grown produce. Everything on the menu tastes delicious, ask Spyro what the catch of the day is, the fish is cooked to perfection and melts in your mouth, order lots of small dishes and share, personal favourites included; greek salad, saganaki, courgette flower, greens, gavro, fried tomatoes .... I could go on as it's all wonderful! If you visit Kefalonia be sure to make a day trip to Vatsa you will never want to leave! There are also beautifully crafted stone houses with pools for rent if you did want to stay a few days or more and truly unwind, this place is a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of city life, time stops for a while - It's perfect!
