“Upscale dining in Lixouri.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2012

It is really a shame that the Novita cannot be found among the other Lixouri restaurants here in Tripadvisor and instead is lost among many anonymous restaurants in the generic Cephalonia listing. The restaurant offers a unique venue for special occasions or romantic dinners as it is the most up scale dining establishment in Lixouri. It has a great position in the waterfront and offers choice of many levels for people who prefer the balcony to the sea front. The setting of the tables is very elegant and the service very attentive. As in all good restaurants it's the little things: like offering all children free ice cream, beautifully presented with a Greek flag at the end of the meal while at the same time they offer all guests a platter of seasonal fruit. I have noticed the freebies change from time to time, so there's always the element of surprise to keep things interesting. My favourite dish is the Caesar Salad which is the best I have ever had, even in the States and Tihuana, Mexico itself, the birthplace of the dish. I also like the Mozzarella di Buffalo pizza and my son prefers the Cephalonian meat pie they make to that of any other restaurant in town. I strongly recommend this restaurant for a romantic dinner or a family gathering.

“Why aren't you in the Lixouri rankings?????”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2012

We went to Novita after reading about it in reviews on the hotel La Cite site and are we delighted we did.
It was so wonderful we went another twice during our holiday in July 2012 including our precious last night...
Between us we had six starters and six mains,all different every time. From the complimentary bruchettas to the last mouthful of sweet everything was delicious and mouth watering.Fish,meat moussaka,you name it.....Unlike other restaurants in Greece at the moment,most mains were accompanied by rice,chips or potatoes and salad and beautifully presented
Like the previous reviewer,we appreciated the proper cloths instead of the standard paper ones used in most places.

Most of the staff at all of Lixouri's restaurants are friendly and helpful but the staff at Novita are outstandingly so, as is the owner,who would walk on hot coals for his customers.

Twice we ate on the sea front overlooking the harbour,which was lovely and cool but, a storm was expected on our last night so we ate on the balcony instead and had stunning views.
We came away astounded that this gem of a place is not even ranked in Lixouri restaurants on tripadvisor,it is our No1 and we will be going back many times,so come on tripadvisor posters,get visiting and reviewing..........
