Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Not a restaurant for fish. We ordered fried Sole. We expected the fish to be simply sautéed or in a sauce. But we got very poor fish and chips!!! The sole was very obviously frozen. We each had two fillets - cooked in batter! Awful,...Awful, Awful. The batter was hard and overcooked whilst the fish was slippery and undercooked. We had hollowed out chips that quickly went cold. It was a stormy night so we made the most of wine and dessert.More

Fantastic restaurant. We stayed at the Nine Muses and visited this on-site restaurant several times for lunch and dinner. Food was always fresh and tasty, well presented and the service was great.

We have eaten here numerous times of the years and it never disappoints. Very varied menu, gorgeous salads for a lunch stop, many choices for an evening meal. All yummy. Location superb, surroundings excellent, staff the friendliest bunch. Not sure why Avra doesn’t score higher...on here because it should… or maybe I keep the secret to myself!More

This is the most friendly most welcoming restaurant and bar you will find in Skala and most probably all of Kefalonia. Mourinho and his team are so lovely. Their service is the best and it is always with a smile. We spent lots of time...here during our week in Skala, and wished we had booked this hotel during our stay. Julia behind the bar was amazing, we love you. i really really couldn’t recommend this place enough times, please if you are here get the chance to visit. We will be booking to stay at the hotel in the future because we can’t get enough of all the people that work here. Special mentions to all of the men working the restaurant and Olga for your big smile. 🩷🩷🩷More

What a wonderful wide ranging menu of Greek classics & more modern dishes. Each chef has a light hand & delicate seasoning for each type of food. We chose to eat here more than any other of our favourite restaurants this year & would certainly...choose half board in future. The staff are excellent & make sure to remember your individual tastes. I can not praise this restaurant & staff enough to be honest. Lovely wine list & a great cocktail list too. Whilst I am reviewing dinner I do need to mention breakfast as it is amazing! Also the waffles which my husband became addicted to. The aperitif with the bill was a lovely touch although I am now also rather partial to a black sambuca at home too!More

We arrived late in pouring rain and they still had the restaurant open and served us moussaka at 11pm! It was delicious. Friendly staff. In the morning when we went to breakfast in daylight we could appreciate the seafront location. They serve the 'buffet' breakfast...to you and it's very well practiced and efficient.More

Have eaten in many restaurants in Skala but this is without doubt my favourite. Menu is varied, from traditional Greek to tender steaks. Have never had a bad meal. Portion sizes are too large to fit in 3 courses. The staff are fantastic, Aris, Nikos,...Olga and the rest. Views are beautiful out to sea and creates a lovely ambience. Prices are pretty much the same as other restaurants in Skala. 1 litre of house wine is 11 euros and decent for the price. Cocktail bar at the side of the restaurant or alternatively the more traditional hotel bar is 25 yards further back manned by the excellent Manos. Occasionally live singers performing and even the owner Greek dancing, which adds even more to the experience. Easiest 5* review ever.More

We were staying at the 9 Muses for two weeks & having just arrived & unpacked decided to eat in the restaurant at the front of the hotel. The restaurant is very welcoming & sited opposite Skala beach. We chose our meals…my husband had the...pork with Halloumi & I had the Vegetarian Moussaka. Both meals came quite quickly, were hot & tasty. The restaurant was always busy, as we found during our holiday, it is a very popular place to dine especially on the evening Hollis sings at the hotel. Advisable to book well ahead that night. The staff are super friendly & extremely helpful. An enjoyable first evening spent at our hotel.More
