“Best original barbeque in Kefalos”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

I ate with my boyfriend at Santa Barbara. The food was delicious that we went back every night of our stay. We sat on the balcony enjoying a romantic peaceful view. The service was very pleasant with a family environment. We enjoyed the grilled meat, Greek salad, chicken Kefalos, and everything we tried on the menu. The friendly smiles of Prodromos and sister Barbara welcomed us each night. We were refreshed with beer, wine and very readonable prices. Watermelon, baklava and yogurt with honey were our favorit

“Very poor after last year”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

Having been so enamoured with this delightful seafront restaurant last year, we decided to take our Daughter there for her first time, this year. We chose a table upstairs overlooking the sea, and were warned, should it be too windy, we could move downstairs, this was not a problem. However, we waited an absolute age for our food, and when it was finally delivered, my Husband's moussaka was stone cold. After yet another age of trying to attract someones attention, I leaned over the balcony and called someone. Although they apologised profusely, by the time the meal was returned, both my Daughter and myself had long finished our meals. There was no ambience to the place, as last year, and the owner/Manager seemed rather flustered, even though, there were not as many diners this time. The food was ok ish, but not the high standard of last year.......would probably not go back again to this establishment next time, and felt let down, as we'd had such a tasty, hot meal previously, with quick service.

“Bad night for the chef”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

Having read all the great reviews of this resteraunt,mainly last years though,we went here on our second night.location was good,service was good but food was drastic.spaghetti with prawns? that actually had about 5 tiny shrimp sized pieces and a sauce with a skin on,calamares that was so dry and chewy and even shaped that it was obviously cooked from frozen ,pork steak that was dry and tepid and ,despite asking specifically for chips ,came with a jacket potato and another meal which was so memorable that a week after returning home nobody could remember what was ordered.the only food that was remotely nice was the jacket potatoes and even I would struggle to get that wrong.As I put in the title perhaps the chef had an off night but if this is the general standard he ought to have plenty of time on his hands to practice.the 2 star rating is purely for location and the service of the girl at front of house.cannot recommend.sorry
