We stayed at Assos a few days and we visited 3 tavernas. The best is Nefeli-Anait restaurant on the central beach. The best restaurant view is from North-Assos restaurant. Some days they have live music.

What we didn't like:
Strip ceiling, old plumbing equipment, leakage marks on the walls.

In Kefalonia, we stayed in a small hotel in Skala and enjoyed the nice calm beaches in the area. Skala was very beautiful and had some great views and beaches. Shops were as expected, tourist items. We found the best restaurant in all the island in Skala, a great Italian restaurant close to the chemist, in the centre of the village. Maybe you should spend a few days in Skala and a few days in Argostoli to get a balance of secluded and a more town atmosphere.

Kefaloniagenerally has a safe and warm friendly atmosphere, extremely low crime rate, inspolt villages, reasonable nightlife without any rowdy and unruly people. Eating out is a pleasure, every meal is a delight of well presented and great homemade cooking. Taverns are intime, with delicious Greek food and of course Greek music. Most of the taverns and bars are situated near the sea, so the tourists can admire the game of the waves. Drinks in beach bars are presented in a professional manner, chilled and correctly served, not thrown together as at some resorts. Most people spoke English, which was very helpful.

Most beautiful island of Europe

Kefalonia is one of the most beautiful islands from Europe, in my opinion. I love the sea, its beaches, vilages, landscape, churches...everything...I am sorry I could not visited more places of the island that I did but I hope I will come back, together with another good friends of mine to show them this wonderful island. The boat trip in Melissani Cave will stay in my mind because it was so nice and calm. Boat man explained us the history of the cave in good English. Best beaches are Platis Gialos, Tourkapedou, Xi, Ammes and of course Myrtos beach, the best! I have seen no beach like that anywhere! You must advertise Kefaloniamore, people, because all the world must visit this beautiful island! Food is great in all the taverns, especially in the taverns off track. You can find such in least expected places, in huge mountains, small beaches, tiny villages. Try all dishes, you will love each one! When I came home, I looked the web for recipes of Greek food and now I am cooking it almost every week. Something to remember our nice vacations!!

Respect the island and stop developing

Kefalonia almost feels like we have "come home" each time we arrive. It is the most relaxed, laid back friendly country we have ever been. There may be small areas that seem to have the bad side of the UK, i.e. drunkun idiots, but this is really a tiny element and it is so easy to avoid any of this, like Lassi.

There is so much beauty on this island and after the fires we need to support the locals as much as we can to try and get things back to normal. The local food can be excellent in some areas and "out of tins" in others. It really is down to the holiday maker to experience as much as possible. In Skala, most restaurants are good with some excellent, like the Old Village. The Pines has a great reputation but when we ate there we received frozen fish (uncooked) and unhelpful service! My daughter loved a local puppet show in the local school playground (not in english), great family fun. and real community spirit!

Respect the island and stop the property developers from destroying it (were the fires an accident?).Become part of Kefalonia, respect the locals, treat them well and they will treat you well. No matter where you go you can enjoy but for us we love the South, absolutely fantastic.

Memories are still vivid

I went to Kefalonia about three summers ago but the beauty of the island is still vivid in my mind. The best thing on Kefalonia are the beaches. You can find wonderful beaches there for all tastes. Myrtos is the best of course, but if you drive around Kefalonia you will find other less known but very beautiful small coasts, like Ai Thomas, Saint Nikolas and Xi. Not all of them are organized, but they are all clean. In fact, I doubt if I have seen cleaner beaches in other Greek islands.

Villages on Kefalonia are so picturesque but the bad thing is that you can't rely on public buses to see them. I suggest you rent a car for a couple of days to make the tour of the island. Assos is particularly nice. Our hotel was there and the balcony had view to the small port. A lovely picture to see in the morning. Fiscardo is also nice. Argostoli is busy.

Pay attention if you stuck with your car behind big coaches. It takes a while to get unstuck. This is when you will hear many klaxons from the Greeks, who are the worst drivers I think. They do not pay attention to motorcycles, do not stop at STOPs and have many nerves when driving. They are expecting you to make unbelievable moves to get away from traffic, like it is your fault that the bus is in front of you! Also more gas stations are needed on the island, especially in areas away from Argostoli.

You will find no nightlife and not important historical monuments to see, but this will not matter you. The natural beauty of Kefalonia is enough.

Nature at its best

Kefalonia has great beaches, not too much crowded when we were there (in September). Typical villages, I liked most Fiscardo, Argostoli and Lassi. Lassi also has nice watersports in the beach, while the other beaches are not organized. Generally, Kefalonia doesn't have much touristic places (such as some places in Crete and on other islands). Historical monuments do not exist extensively (probably due to earthquakes?), but nature is wonderful. Melissani cave is a natural miracle, I guess it would be perfect for diving but I stayed only a week on the island and didn't have the time to search for diving excursions there. Every corner of Kefalonia is relaxing, from the nice coves to the high mountainous spots with breathtaking views.

Fabulous holiday

An absolutely stunning island saturated with historical, archeological and geographical wonders. Magnificent and imposing scenery. Welcoming and friendly people.

I accidentally learned about Kefalonia when I read Louis de Bernieres novel "Captain Corelli's Mandolin". The landscapes were so beautifully described that I
searched the Internet and found out some great photos of the island.

On Kefalonia, there are breathtakingly stunning beaches, coastline and mountains with lush vegetation and striking trees.

Lassi was very friendly, very nice beaches and good facilities.

Fiskardo was beautiful and very classy.

Myrtos Beach a must see and must visit!

Melissini lake and Drogorati caves enchanting.

St Gerasimos cave built into the hills is fascinating and quite humbling.

Discover Island Tour is available everywhere and I highly recommend it.

Sami and Assos looked gorgeous as we drove through.

The local food is also delicious. We ate in Lassi most evenings at a variety of restaurants, our favourite being Il Tramonto, with Sto Psito and Taverna Sirtaki coming close. We spent most evenings in The Exclusive Bar which sold cocktails in a nice setting with good atmosphere, friendly staff and on most
nights very good entertainment.

Our only bad experience was in the airport. This was awful. Elderly and children were queueing for hours to get in. A terrible end to a fabulous holiday.

Keep nightlife well away

It's the best place in the world as far as I'm concerned and the last thing it needs is so called nightlife. Just look at Zante and the trouble they have. Kefalonia is peaceful and has enough to offer the person who wants to rest. Enjoy the sun, sand and sea and wonderful food. Not to mention the people who are helpful, generous and more. Just can't think how to put it in to words. So if you want night life and one long party, go else where and don't spoil Kefalonia.

Kefalonia is simply amazing. It has so many beatiful corners to discover and it's so various: from long white sand beaches close to Argostoli to the wide reefs that dig into the blue close to Kipuria! From red sand beaches in Lixouri to green olive and cypress forests that touch the water in Fiskardo and Sami. And then Drogarati caves and Melissani lake that are particular and nice to see and the breathtaking beaches of Petanus and Myrtos with unforgettable sunsets. If you look for nitghlife visit Mikonos or Rhodes, but if you look for crystal clear sea, peaceful beaches, good food, freedom and nature then Kefalonia is one of the best places in the world!

The island was lovely and had great beaches. But it lacked many things. For example, there were not real historical monuments and if you wanted to see one or two, streets were not appropriately signposted. Also there was no real nightlife, only a few beach bars scattered here and there. Lush green landscape and beautiful villages, but gift shops had the same gifts.
