Reviewed 3 August 2014

This is a lovely place to have a meal ,the food was great and plenty of it (try the English steak).If you like fish try the sole fried in butter it is beautiful.The service is top notch and they always have a smile on their faces we went there 3times and were never disappointed. Can't wait to go back.

Nice family restaurant that. The owner fish there own fish, which make the price a little cheeper than other restaurants. Friendly straff.

“Our favourite”
Reviewed 27 July 2014 via mobile

We have been to Kefalos twice now and eat most evenings here. The food is awesome. The family work incredibly hard and the service is excellent along with the amazing views. But the star of the show is the food. The portions are huge but they are happy to accommodate any requests. The traditional dishes are fabulous but my favourite is the fish especially the sole which is to die for. It may not look like much from the outside but I highly recommend you give it a go, you won't regret it.

“The place for fresh fish”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

If you want fresh fish this is the place to go, it was simply amazing. We had the Sea bass and the Sea bream, and they were both excellent. They also have very nice greek bread made in the house.
The Lamb Kleftico was also nice, but the portions are really big! It's probably best to share that one between two, unless you have a really big appetite.
Also highly recommend the stuffed vine leaves as a starter.

It's not a fancy place by any means and during our stay it was always packed, but they had great service and it was worth it for the quality of the food. Don't miss out on this one.

“Great fresh fish!”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

Good value. Not bad wine either for Greece! All Greek dishes lovely. Large portions so if you don't eat much don't get a starter!
