This used to be The Olive Press. Unfortunately, this new establishment was the worst meal and evening we encountered on our holiday. The service was very, very slow and the restuarant only had half a dozen customers that evening. The food was poor which is a shame given the surroundings. There are better eating houses elsewhere in Lassi, and considering the price we paid for what we had, we would not recommend this restuarant. Very disappointing.
Went to mystic gusto once over our 2 wk stay,food was good staff were ok,but there were better places to eat,sorry but only ok for me!!
Wendy and i spent every nite at mystic gusto over 4 years of travelling to Kefelonia All i can say is that u are welcolmed like family coming home .We had some very late and very drunk nites there over the 4 years we went there .Lewis is one of the best waiters and flirts on the island but he has a wonderful outgoing personallty.The two girls are second to none and the wine and singing just flow.
i went to mystic gusto every night on my holiday they looked after me just like family been there 4 years on hoilday cant wait to go back love them to bit and i hate to leave xx see you soon xx
Our first time in Kefalonia we spent 3 visits here and found the food and staff wonderful, the entertainment was really good fun I did the Greek dancing on the 1st visit with lots of wine to accompany it and woke up next morning like a cripple but it was worth it I had Mothers meatballs with rice and garnish which was great and next time had Veal Stamna which just as good. We could not fault the place and would reccomend you try it, you wont be dissapointed. Kev & Pearl
Went to Mystic Gusto 3 times during our stay this year. One the whole food was good, although sometimes the service could have been a bit better. Only complaint I had was with the Veal Stamna which was great the first time but when I had it on our third visit it was cold at the bottom!
Wonderful food, Chicken Robola was gorgeous. I celebrated my 40th birthday in there and had a wonderful night, the singer sang "Happy Birthday" to me and presented me with a cake complete with sparkler! Very friendly people.
We avoided catching the greek singer's eye as she plied the tables but, apart from that, really great food, good ambience, can't fault it!
used to be olive press.the food of fantastic prices very good.live music or greek dancing a few times a week.went 3 times&1 for breakfast give it a try you wont be disapointed *****
Wow what a friendly place. Meals value for money. The staff are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them. Best restaurant in Lassi by far!
Next time you are in Lassi try them.
Food Service and Cleanliness all superb. By far the best value for money in Lassi.
When we visited in May it could have been their first week of the season and they were very busy but after being served our first drinks and starters quite quickly, we were over an hour waiting for our main courses and then had to get the waitress's attention, as she had rushed off to deal with other customers after giving us our meals, to tell her we had no cutlery as it had been taken with the starter plates. Food was good when it came, a good introduction to Kefalonian fare, and the entertainment kept our minds off our rumbling stomachs. One of the waitresses did most of the dancing then went straight back to waiting tables which was impressive. It was also quite entertaining watching the waiters running up and down the steps from the teired level tables to the kitchen - it gave the impression things were being done quickly! Then at the end of the meal there was another long wait to get the bill as the waitress seemed to be very tied up with queries at other tables. My advice is don't go there feeling too hungry on a busy night as you may have a long wait for your food!
Excellent service, veal cooked to perfection proper chips, good entertainment, love of my
life happy what more can a man ask for.
Well worth the trip from Canada :)
The Olive Press in Lassi is no more. We went to book for our wedding anniversary and found it had moved to a new property next to the airport. There is a restaurant at the old premises. It is called the Mystic Gusto!! We gave it a miss and headed for Argostoli because we hated the name - though perhaps the food was good.
Never had a bad meal in here The food is Fantastic,The staff are Brilliant, The live music is First class, The company around the bar always good, and will be back in there 1 week from sunday. looking forward to seeing Babi and all our friends,(especially Socrates and Dina) for another relaxing holiday in lassi
Last time we went to The Olive Press we had a fantastic time.Food was exellant as was the service.Ihave been to Lassi a dozen times and allways go to this restaurant at least twice during my stay.Sea bream was special.Does anyone know if Fotini still works there, you can't miss her.

WE really enjoyed both times we went her. the food was tasty and generous. the staff were run off thier feet but still cheerful and attentive. the setting is very rustic greece set over small terrices containing onnly 3 or 4 tables so very cosy and intermate. the roof is a conopy of vines and flowers and so are the walls. very beatutiful - kind of like you would imagine sitting on the patio of a greek persons house would be like. chunky pine furniture and wicker chairs you couldnt get more down to earth or back to nature if you tried. Food was lovely especially the stiffado but bare in mind that this place is trying to be traditionally greek so they use lots of oil and herbs, which might not be to the taste of some english people who favour Mc Donalds as an evening out lol! The comments by the Annonomous person below are so right, the waing staff do work very hard long hours so do them a favour - say hello, good bye and thank you in greek and leave a fair tip they will so apprishiate it and you can afford to be cheerful and generous your on holiday!
Great place - fantastic setting amongst the trees. Well priced - try the sea bream!
Very pretty setting. a good choice and nice food too, excellent souvlaki.
(Keith - the toilets are round the back of the bar, you have to go through the garden to reach them!)
A lovely place to eat. It gets very busy but this does not detract from the quality of food we received. We enjoyed the greek dancing the first evening we went there and our last night on Kefalonia we enjoyed the basouki music. The staff work very hard and are always smiling and running about with their trays stacked with food and drink.
Very Average Service
Reasonable if limited menu (especially for children's meals)
Cheese Pie awful!
Worth a visit for the location/setting.
