We had a meal in Il Familia. It is a bit out of the town. If you are on the harbour then walk along the harbour towards Karavomilos (away from the Ferry docks). After a bit you are walking beside houses and small offices. All of a sudden you get to the taverna, It has seats outside and across the road overlooking the harbour.

If you want a bit of a drive, then someone on the group "Cefalonia forever" recommended a taverna (I think there is only one!) in Poulata. It is about 5km from Sami inland in a Westerly direction. I intend to investigate it in about twelve days!!

Nothing to do with tavernas but:-

There is a great model of a butcher outside the butcher's shop in Sami!!

There is a good "arty" shop called "In Gallery "

We always eat at Il Familia on the harbour front day or night............lovely restaurant, highly recommend it. In fact we stayed in their apartments for 2 nights last year & loved those too.

I was going to suggest our absolute favourite Kallithea but given it's location and your arrival by boat, probably not the best idea..........just outside Sami but ideally you need to be driving or at least get a taxi

Il Familia ? It's one of the 1st restaurant facing the sea as you arrive into the harbour, I think it's about 2nd or 3rd in so to speak, if your coming the other way, which I think you are then it'll be on your left towards the harbour end.

You can't miss it, the main building across the road is all very muted beige tones and looks very classy, look for the large mirrored windows above the building, (the apartments) they're the only one's I've seen in Sami
