“Good food and great views”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

We have holidayed in Kefalonia on many occasions, but this was our first time dining at La Mer in Vlachata and we were impressed.
We received a warm welcome from the hosts and chose a table on the veranda with great views towards the sea and the neighboring island of Zakynthos which became even more spectacular as the sun went down. The menu provided a good selection of authentic Greek dishes and our meal was delicious (as was the house wine).
Service was good throughout the meal, the price was very competitive and it proved a thoroughly relaxing and enjoyable evening.
We will definitely visit La Mer again on our next annual visit to Kefalonia.

Fantastic views over the sea to Zakynthos but service was slow and food was dry. On the upside wine was only €1.50/glass!

“Simple but really good!”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

Try the lamb dishes. Regular price settings and really nice view.. A extra plus for the free Wifi. We ate 2 dinners at this place during a one week visit. Good good food and nice friendly staff! =)

“Disappointing”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

Went to this restaurant on the recommendation of trip advisor. Was sorely disappointed with the food. Perhaps it has gone down hill. I went with my boyfriend and had the Greek Meze for two as a starter. Everything tasted cheap and like it was from a jar or can. My boyfriend had the calamari for his main and had to send it back as it was inedible tough like rubber boots. I had the lamb in cherries it was ok but far too sweet tasting and not natural.
I wished we had gone back to the Olive lounge up the road.
