If you’re looking for the best restaurant in Argostoli Kefalonia, you won’t have to look far. Casa Grec Argostoli is one of the most popular restaurants on the island. If you’re feeling hungry, it’s located just behind the Mirabel Hotel. Particularly popular amongst Italian visitors, the pizza makes Casa Grec one of the best restaurants in Kefalonia.
Poseidon: Agia Efimia
We know this one all too well. Having stayed at the apartments located above the restaurant, visitors frequently return night after night to this traditional sea food restaurant. We recommend trying the Seafood Platter for two for €25. As you will often find in Kefalonia, the owners are extremely friendly at the Poseidon Sea Food Restaurant.
Looking for Fiscardo restaurants with a view? Elli’s Cafe, located in the upmarket village of Fiscardo, offers foodies nothing short of the best view of the Ionian. Enjoy delicious sea food and meat dishes with a glass of wine as you gaze at the island of Ithaca. It’s worth finding a hotel in Fiscardo for the night, just to indulge at Elli’s. We recommend the Kefalonia Pie.
Captain Jerry: Katelios
One of our firm favourites is Captain Jerry’s located in the low key fishing harbour of Katelios. You’ll expect to find the best traditional seafood dishes here. Captain Jerry Fish Taverna serve a mean seafood platter for two with a panoramic view of the bay of Katelios. Without a doubt one of the best Kefalonia restaurants with a view.
Phaedra Restaurant: Lassi
By far one of the classics to be found in Kefalonia. Phaedra Restaurant is located in the most popular and family-friendly resort of Lassi so it’s well known. We recommend trying a few of the local wines whilst enjoying the rich taste of Lamb Kleftiko which is a popular choice here. Locals say Phaedra is the best restaurant in Lassi Kefalonia. Looking for a hotel for the night? We recommend the Astra Village, Svoronata.
Lorraines Magic Hill: Lourdes
Another fantastic family run restaurant, Lourdas Magic Hill serves the best of Greek traditional dishes such as Moussaka, Kefalonian Meat Pie and Beef Stifado. We recommend visiting to enjoy the warm reception and service you’d expect to find from a family run eatery. Visitors to Lourdas say this is one of the best restaurants in Kefalonia.
Enjoy traditional dishes with a pleasant mix of class and Greek cuisine. Tassia is located in a prime location amongst the sails of boats and yachts found in the harbour. The owner is well known around the world for serving amazing dishes with a killer view of Ithaca in the distance. One of the best Fiscardo restaurants.
Captain Nikolas: Lixouri
For those looking to eat somewhere different, Captain Nikolas in Lixouri is just for you, serving some of the best food in Greece. Not the easiest place to find, visitors will find Nikolas cooking the best homemade Greek dishes in Vasta, right off the beaten path. What makes this restaurant different is that every single dish comes from the farm found right behind the restaurant.
Ampelaki restaurant Argostoli offer hungry guests a wide variety of contemporary dishes with a sprinkle of Greek class. Dishes such as schnitzel and burgers can be enjoyed here, but with a complete twist. Popular amongst holiday makers of all ages, Ampelaki offer traditional Kefalonian dishes such as its famous pie!
Spiros: Agia Efimia
Another traditional but popular Kefalonia restaurant found in the harbour of Agia Efimia. Spiros serve up local dishes aswell as sea food classics caught right in the bay of Agia Efimia. What we really love about Spiros restaurant is the relaxed and friendly atmosphere you’ll enjoy whilst sipping on an ice cold Mythos.
Best Restaurants in Kefalonia round up
If you’re looking for the best Kefalonia Pie, we recommend trying Retseto in Lassi (which isn’t on our list).
For travellers eating regularly at Fiscardo restaurants, prices are slightly higher on the harbour, so it’s worth looking behind the backstreets for a bargain.
