“Great worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2013

We had 2 meals here when we visited Kefalonia with friends. What more can I say apart from fresh fish that was cooked to perfection. They did have a rather strange looking "lobster" type thing in the display case. Not sure what it was called but it was similar to a lobster but looked like a brown suede "busted boot". If anyone knows what it is called I would love to know. I was so relaxing sitting there looking out over the bay and the people that worked there were so friendly.

“Big Fish, great Value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013

My sister and I ate here in June (2013), whilst staying in lovely Katelios.
We were impressed with the choice of fish on the menu,the service was good with attentive staff, (but not over baring), and a lovely atmosphere right next to the sea (if you're lucky enough to bag a table here), the restaurant definitely attracts the crowds so you need to pick your timing for a good table, but we found the staff very accommodating with this.

I chose the Tuna Kebab which was fresh, chunky, juicy and very tasty., whilst my sister had the sea bass which was cooked equally well.

With ref to a previous review, some of the fish was indeed frozen, but the menu stipulated this so customers were made aware of this fact before ordering, but there was always fresh fish on offer, including catch of the day.

Well worth a visit if you are staying in the lovely resort of Katelios.
YAMAS !

“Very poor 'Fish special' plate and even worse service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013

Stopped here on our third night of holiday for their special fish platter. Checked with the lady at the front of house first "What does it come with?" and we were told chips and salad. Fast forward ten minutes and a plate arrives with two tuna steaks, two prawns, two swordfish steaks and a fried cod. Nothing else.I don't care how much you like fish that is a REALLY dry dish. Eventually got someone over and were told. 'No, it does not come with anything else' Nothing else, no offer to get something, no "why would you think that?", nothing. Ordered a plate of fries (for which we were charged) and were then carefully avoided by all of the staff for the rest of the evening. Up in Ag Efimina for 25 euros you get a fish platter with salad, chips AND 1/2 litre of wine for the same price as "Captain Jerry's" fish special.

It's no wonder his shiny new BMW is parked outside. Avoid!

“Best for fish”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013 via mobile

We ate here lots as I am a fish fan. The food was very good as was the service. Lovely setting by the sea, always very busy. Would recommend if you like fish as there was not much else to choose although my other half had some great pork chops. Why can't the Greeks do veg?
