Sirtaki Restaurant - (Restaurants in Lassi)

Andy P           

We have just come back from two fantastic weeks in Lassi.  We ate at Sirtakie probably 4-5 times.  The food was very nice however you do get the impression that they try to get as many people in and out as possible.  Having said that we were not pressured to finish the meal and leave.  The waiters obviously have to earn thier money.  The boss wears a white shirt and wanders around telling the waiters off if they arent working as fsat as he would like.  The Austrailian waiter is a good laugh.  The breaded sole is fantastic.  You will have to ask for the bill 2-3 times which contradicts them trying to get you out as quick as possible.  Overall if you can accept they are busy you wont have a bad time.

Chinese Dragon - (Restaurants in Lassi)

What can I say.  This was by far the best meal we had over the two weeks.  The bill was 49 euros for two.  We had three starters and a main course.  The food was red hot and tasted fantastic.  If you can sit outside only so that you can watch the sunset, it is beautiful.  It is probably a good idea to get a taxi there and back.  Absolutely fantastic food.

Nikos Apartments - (Accommodation in Lassi)

The Nikos apartments are a fantastic place to stay.  They are situated up a steepish hill but if you take your time walking up it, this isn't a problem.  The view is fantastic and all apartments have a sea and pool view.  The inside of them are spotless and the maid cleans every other day which includes changing the sheets and towels.  The pool area is as good with great views over the bay to take in while you sunbathe.  For snacks there is the pool bar at the Olive Tree complex opposite where you can find a fantastic steak submarine roll (the steak is marinated in chilli...bootiful!!).

The best supermarket is Supermarket Lassi which is down the hill and to the left.  A Greek Australian runs it with his family and he's great ...very friendly and helpful.

Phaedra Restaurant - (Restaurants in Lassi)

This was our favourite restaurant.  The food was fantastic, the service was great (very friendly) and you get a chocolate and a shot of liquer with the bill...a nice touch.

We can recommend the Kefalonia meat pie, the mousaka (this was the best I've ever tasted and I've had a few (!!)), and the omlettes. 

Nefeli Restaurant - (Restaurants in Lassi)

Sorry to those that liked this place but our food was very disappointing.  The garlic gread was overloaded with salty garlic butter and the spaghetti bolognaise was very salty too. The service was OK and the owner was a very chirpy lady who made you feel welcome.  Sorry to say though we didn't go back.

Drogarati Cave - (Places to Visit in Kefalonia)

Definitely go here, it's so beautiful. Mother nature at her best!  There are a fair few steps down which obviously you then need to climb back up but it's well worth it.

Fiskardo - (Resorts in Kefalonia)

 Well worth visiting.  It's so pretty and there are plenty of restaurant's and cafe's to eat and drink.   

Melissani Lake - (Places to Visit in Kefalonia)

The Melissani lake is just a short ride from the resort of Sami and can be reached either on an organised coach trip or self drive if you hire a car. There is a car-park and once you have paid (5 Euro's each) there is a cafe where your husband can stay with the baby whilst you go down to the lake. Access to the lake is down a short ramp. There are 3 small row boats that take up to 6 people. They take you round the lake for approx 15 mins. When you get back your husband can then enjoy the experience. It is well worth going to the lake, it is so beautiful and you get a weird feeling when you look up at the gap left from when the ceiling of the original cave calopsed revealing the lake. Good luck and enjoy!!
