We ate here for 4 of our 7 nights. Having experienced one disappointing meal elsewhere we were drawn back to this taverna by the lovely food. The staff are friendly and super efficient. The place is run like clockwork but it still feels casual. The taverna is decorated in a pale scheme which is very attractive. We appreciated the non smoking area as we find smoking when we're eating highly objectionable!

The food was great and during our stay we sampled Greek salad,mousaka,fried fish various stuffed peppers,aubergines,tomatoes, chicken and pork. All were cooked with care and presented beautifully. We also tried a delicious dish of rabbit with lemon,oregano and garlic. Most of the mains were served with home grown vegetables and rice or potatoes. Wine is cheap and very good.

All in all a very good taverna,highly recommended-for us by far the best in Skala!

As you may have seen from previous reviews, my partner and I have been to Kefalonia a fair few times now - last visit being number 8 - and have visited Skala on a number of occasions.

On our first night in town this time round we decided to eat at Mikelatos Restaurant as it looked appealing and welcoming, and the menu was very varied. We wondered why it was a little quiet, but put that down to the fact it was blowing an absolute gale and had been very stormy.

We were not disappointed!

The welcome and service was superb. We headed to a table laid for four people as we did not want to sit right next to the pavement (because of the wind) and then realised it had a reserved sign on it. The waiter said do not worry - you sit there it is not a problem - that family is not in til later and there will be plenty of other tables for them then. The food choice was very good - including meat, fish, pasta, salads and vegetarian dishes. I started with the Tsatsiki that came with pita bread. Wow what a taste - spicy hot as there was a lot of garlic in it and it was divine. I have to say that this was probably the best Tsatsiki I have ever eaten. Main course was Chicken Souvlaki served with salad and home made chips.

The service was excellent throughout and a definite must go to place for a meal.

On our last night we had decided that we would go to Mikelatos or The Manor House depending on which one was free. Unfortunately, Mikelatos was packed so we went back to the other joint first place restaurant - The Manor House behind the main square - near to Sallys Bar.

Great food and a great atmosphere make this taverna unmissable if staying in Skala. The owners George and Jimmy are attentive without being pushy whilst the waiters, Blade, Dino and Chris make sure you are never kept waiting longer than necessary in this very popular taverna. The menu offers a wide range of traditional greek favourites which are made using only the finest high quality locally produced ingredients.
