We popped in as we were heading to the beach for the day and ended up spending long time with Odi, the owner and some regular guests. It has a really homely/traditional feel to it.

Of corse the food and drink were superb. We’ll certainly be heading back before we leave Kefalonia.

A very laid back taverna, overlooking the Jerusalem beach. To order your food, you are invited to visit the kitchen to see what’s available on the day. The olive bread is damn good! Portions are very generous, so don’t get too carried away with your order. The proprietor, “Odi”, is very friendly and welcoming and the ambiance is relaxed and informal. We went twice during our 10 day break in the area.

We didn't make it to Kefalonia last year, but we're really happy to find that the only change to this, our favourite taverna, was an updated kitchen. The food, service, and setting were still excellent and we had many memorable meals here.

The highlights this year were the gourvlakia (meatballs with egg and lemon sauce, apparently made with a very old family recipe), the fish cakes, the almond and orange cake, and the 'life-changing' bread stuffed with olives, feta, and tomatoes.

If you like Greek food that is seasonal, local, unfussy, but very tasty, this place is a must try. If you like being fussed over by best-buddy waiters, beautifully printed menus, and up-market-overkill, I'd suggest that this is not the place for you.

Thanks to Odysseas and all the family for still getting everything right!

this place could be so good, the location is perfect , even if there is a car park between the tables and the sea, but despite it having good reviews it is frankly appalling, the food inedible and the service a little patchy to say the least. Great shame, it should be so much better with such a little effort.

Food is as good as ever - But now getting quite expensive, portions seem smaller and previously you were given a little treat at the end of your meal, we were told they had some nice semolina cake would we like some we were then charged €8 for it ( yes it was lovely but would we have had it if we thought we had to pay - no, are we greedy ? Possibly yes.... ) beach is fine not as nice as others near by, you pay for beds on the beach €10 brolly and 2 beds - maybe if you are going a couple of times take a packed lunch ! Please don’t price yourself out of business you are off the beaten track and not in Fiscardo harbour ( cheaper meals to be had there ! )
