We stayed in a lovely villa in lordas last august. We tried the olive lounge on our 2nd night and couldnt stay away. I went with my husband teenager 9 year old and the inlaws. The olive lounge catered for us all even our picky son. The seating is all outside on the mountain side with amazing views. One night it rained and the staff moved us all under cover as quick as a flash. Us english were happy to sit and wait for it to stop as a little rain doesnt hurt anyone! The food was amazing along with the staff. We have just booked our villa for next year. Watch out olive lounge! We will be back.

The best restaurant that we experienced on our first visit to Kefalonia. The food was superb - kelaftiko, souvlaki, fish - everything was so delicious, from the griddled bread, tzatsiki and saganaki to the scrumptious baklava, I have dined in many of London's finest eateries and I would say this is up there with the best of them. They were so accomodating to our two-year old daughter who loved the grilled chicken breast with oil and lemon, fresh salad and chipped potatoes and they would make a 'childrens' portion of anything so she ate really well - better than at home I am ashamed to admit!!! Fantastic ambience and host - we can't wait to return to this beautiful island and this truly magnificent restaurant - thank you for making our holiday that extra bit special. Would absolutely recommend.

Not so good this year, sadly.

The place was busy, Liana was dashing around taking orders, the other staff seemed new, and whilst plesant enough poor Liana was having to tell them what to do.
The tzatziki was way to garlicy and the carbonnara bland. The drunken calves liver my hubby had though was superb.
Where was Karen to brighten up our night?

The best restaurant in the area bar none .... We sampled all the other local restaurants and for some reason this was the last one we tried but once we'd eaten there we didn't go anywhere else ... The food is simply wonderful, from Kleftiko to Souvlaki, Sea Bass to Stifado it was just delightful, and it just has to be topped off with a Banana, Chocolate & Nutella Crepe with Vanilla Ice Cream, oh my lord, it was heaven !!!!

The service is fantastic, Lianna and Co are wonderful ... Why anybody would eat anywhere else is beyond me.
I can't wait to go back one day ... Hopefully very soon.


i have just got back from two amazing weeks in greece and this resteraunt was amazing, all the staff where so friendly. It was my birthday one night while we where there so they bought me up a candle in my desert which was lovely. Also one of the male waiters was very good looking he made it worth going back! ;) xx

Again this year as we did last last year we ate a few times at the Olive Lounge. I was surprised that out of the 1,000's of people they must see each year that they remembered us!
The food was great! The best tzaztiki  with olive tapenade I've ever tasted. Beef stifado and kleftico the meat just disintegrated when you put your fork on it yum! Hubby had the liver and that too was tender, moist and sooo tasty and the swordfish was scrummy.
The house wine there is also a good price and good quality.
Liana, Karen and staff cannot do enough to make sure that you have a good evening.

Just arrived back from another 2 glorious weeks in Lourdas.  My husband & I have been to the Olive Lounge on numerous occasions on our 2 previous visits to lourdas.  This year we ate in the Olive Lounge just about about every other night.  The food was out of this world, whether if be pasta or greek dishes you will not be disappointed.  The Beef Stifado is to die for!!! mmmmmm.  Liana the owner has an excellent business & is extremely friendly , as is the waiter (sorry we never got your name!!) & Karen the lovely waitress!!!  If you want good, friendly service, relaxing atmosphere, nice wine & excellent food then this is the place to be.  Well done guys keep up the good work & we'll see you all next year.

One of our favourite restuarants in Lourdas.  Liana the owner is a pleasure to talk to and the food is always wonderful.  This year the restuarant had a new waitress, Karen from Wakefield.  She is a gem and has brought her special cocktails to the Olive lounge!!  Any northern Peter Kay fan (Garlic bread!!) is alright by us!!  Keep up the good work.

Ate here one of the eveings during our week. The staff were very accommodating and managed to fit us all in (a table of eight and baby). The food was super and the service was very quick. There just wasn't enough time in one week to go back, but would certainly recommend it and would go again on our next vist to Lourdas

Nice restuarant, good food and lovely view.
Served by a very friendly American Greek lady, who was chatty and attentive.
A very pleasant evening.

the pizzas are massive and very tasty, the service is lively and efficent. All in all a good place to chill, watch the scenery and enjoy great pizza, pasta and steaks.
