The basis of this little restaurant is that it is simple, fresh food cooked extremely well and in the traditional way. Obviously it is family run and owned and whilst we were there a party of builders came in late in the evening for their supper. A really good sign that the locals use this place and they wouldn't if... More

We had a very nice lunch on the terrace at the back, with a luxurious garden which gives a cool and quiet atmosphere. Popular with locals, good traditional food.

Should have realised when the place was empty at 7.30 pm that the reviews had got it wrong. The nice garden area referred to by some at the back of the restaurant is far from idyllic but all of that would have been ok if the food had not been so poor. Fresh rabbit is a greek speciality and I... More

This restaurant was recommended to us but we were sorely disappointed with it. I cannot find anything good to say as no one enjoyed the food and service was not great either.

Our second visit to El Greco was just as enjoyable as the first. This is a proper Greek taverna with a lovely garden at the back. I love the fact you can see some the dishes made earlier in the day, Moussaka, stuffed peppers etc, on display in a glass cabinet near the kitchen. We had a lovely family meal... More

El Greco came recommended to us by friends who have visited Kefelonia 38 times and it really did live up expectations. The food was superb as was the service. Panegortis( probably spelt wrong) is the waiter who really looked after us he was great we had a right laugh with him. It is Excellent value for money. Graham & Ann

We have been regular visitors to Kefalonia for over ten years. Often returning time and again to Taverna's that we love. Now and then we select to eat in a Restaurant where we have never previously dined. This evening was one of those.... El Greco did not disappoint. This is a traditional family owned Restaurant on a slight rise/hill just... More

However, we were pleasantly surprised as the restaurant was almost empty apart from two other tables, I ordered the pasta carbonara and my boyfriend ordered a pizza and a portion... More

We tried to eat here on evening but there were no tables available. We were impressed by what we saw to booked to return the next evening. This turned out to be a great decision. The traditional Greek food was excellent and the staff were friendly, helpful and very efficient. This restaurant is well worth a visit
