Assos - (Resorts in Kefalonia)

John M           

We stayed in Kefalonia for 2 weeks in July 2005.  We explored almost the whole island from our base in Skala, but Assos was definitely the nicest place we visited. On that day we visited Fiskardo also, which was OK but rather disappointing as we had great expectations. Then went to Assos which is defintely better - more picturesque, but not pretentious. Had a nice meal overlooking teh delightful bay which was not overpriced. Also nearer to Myrtos beach which should not be missed.

The Pines - (Restaurants in Skala)

This was the first restaurant we used in our two week holiday. We must have gone to about 10 in Skala and they were all pretty good. Pines was not the cheapest but the quality of food and service is up with the best.

Old Village Restaurant - (Restaurants in Skala)

We (a party of 7 of all ages from UK and Brazil ) spent 2 weeks in Skala in July 2005. We eat out every night either in Skala or elsewhere on island. We never had a bad meal or unfriendly staff anywhere BUT without doubt the The Old Village was definitely he best.

I cannot understand previous comments on price. For our large party we had quite a lot of evidence for price comparison and the Old Village was definitely about 15 to 20 euros consistently cheaper on a typical total bill of around 110 euros,  than the rest  in Skala.  The staff were absolutely great and took time to tell us about the move of the village after the earthquake and the land grant on the site of the restaurant. We even got to hear about the naming of the dish kleftico from 'stolen lamb' (kleptomania ?) during the civil war. Eat there 3 times. The garden area is very beautiful and natural.
Many thanks to all the staff. Don't know their names apart from the lovely Nectaria, but the drinks waiter and the lady owner were also wonderful. We shall be back on our next trip. We also liked Kalivo restaurant very much as the owner puts on Greek fire dancing display and gets everyone involved, even out in the street, but sorry Kalivo you can't quite match the food and service.
