Description: It all began in 2001 with one man and his dream. Come on in and let Apostolis and Natalia be your hosts, while you enjoy delicious traditional Greek food served with Kefalonian hospitality, in a warm family atmosphere. All our dishes are cooked to order; time is taken to prepare them, using freshly sourced ingredients from the local markets.

“Tucked away but well worth looking for”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2014

Busy restaurant that is a bit out of the way. Find the "kiosk", go past the small playground toward Sally's Bar. You will see a signpost (just before The Manor House), turn left and walk a short distance uphill.
First time we went, they had a private function on and it was full. We returned a few days later and were glad that we did.
Outside seating for about 50 diners with a large charcoal grill in the quiet outskirts of Skala.
Food is traditional Greek, with lots of grilled meats, a childrens menu and, not seen too often, swordfish steaks.
We chose souvlaki and swordfish and were well pleased with our choices. The swordfish was a thick chunky steak that almost covered the plate, and the souvlaki were large juicy chunks of pork. Both meals came with fries,salad and tzatziki.
With a couple of ice cold beers, the total cost was 20 euros. Great value for what we had received. We were given free glasses of wine when the bill arrived.
It is a shame we could not get a table the first time we called - I would have gladly returned.

“Couldn't fault it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014

We ate at Apostolis on our first night and our last one. In both cases we had a grilled dish which couldn't be faulted. The food had a wonderful chargrilled flavour. The service was excellent despite being very busy and the prices were reasonable.

“Lovely food and great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014 via mobile

We went Monday night after our first day in skala. We had read several reviews of most of the eating places so kinda knew what to expect. I had the swordfish and my wife had the kefalonian meat pie. Both were really delicious, in fact so much so we went back last night too. Staff very friendly and attentive and even a free glass of wine each at the end of the meal which was a nice touch. I'm sure we will pay it another visit over the next two weeks.

“Just Perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

Great food served with a smile! No matter how busy you always get the best service though hidden away far from the main street, word of mouth ( and the Internet) have made this a very popular taverna. Tolis and his family always provide delicious Greek food served in very pleasant surroundings , the atmosphere is just what you want from a traditional Greek family run taverna.

“Average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

This restaurant came highly recommended to us but we were disappointed sadly. We felt that it was trying to be everything to everybody instead of having its own identity. The actual Greek dishes were sparse and of an average quality when they did appear. Try Aquarius, just off the main drag if you want an authentic greek experience.
