Greek menus very often have the same dishes, but Ampelaki was a bit different. As well as the usual favourites, there were some that were new to me. The chick pea balls were fresh, light and delicious. Everything we ate was cooked to a high standard. The place was friendly and welcoming, located right on the harbour side.

This restaurant is a touch above the rest that we visited in Argostoli. The food was divine and the range of wine was perfect. We had a really nice bottle of locally produced Robola, grilled sardines, fish and assorted fried vegetables Greek style, all cooked to perfection. Definitely an option for a romantic dinner by the harbour!

It was lovely. As fish eaters, we loved this place. Everything was caught that day abs the calamari was the winner for sure. So light. Ambience was quiet and serene. A definite winner in my book

After trying several restaurants during our 10 day stay in Argostoli we found ourselves returning to the Ampelaki for 4 of our evening meals. The service was excellent and the meals tasty, with a good selection on the menu. We would highly recommend a visit.

Nice furniture and kind service, but in a ugly location at the end of the main street of Argostoli. Poor quality/price and not very large portions. Food good enough but not excellent. No special reason to choose this restaurant, attended mailly by Italian people because of maids speaking Italian.

Having walked along the Marina and seen the turtles, we walked the other direction and found this lovely pub. We both had drinks, got free wifi, always a bonus then my husband decided to try the halloumi. It came very quick and it tasted as good as it looked. We weren't harassed in any way, just left to sit and... More

The title says it all. Would recommend to all. Plenty of choice, lots of fish, I had local dish of beef and tomatoes. It was lovely, the beef just fell apart

Visited here after reading mixed reviews on TA. Being vegetarian I was limited to 1 main course so opted to have 2 starters as my main, the halloumi and mushrooms, which had a lovely grilled flavour to them, but were still just halloumi and mushrooms. My boyfriend had the honey and coriander chicken with rice which I am assured was... More

This place tries to differentiate compared to the average tavern by better service and display. However they do not excel. Portions small not especially tasteful and prices a bit higher. Wine list limited
