VERY POPULAR WITH GREEK PEOPLE IN THE EVENINGS, THE ENGLISH ON HOLIDAY NOW HAVE PASSED VERY GOOD COMMENTS ON THE RESTAURANT. PLEASE UPDATE THIS RESTAURANT TO IT'S NEW NAME AS I AM SURE PEOPLE WOULD LIKE TO PUT COMMENTS ON.
This restaurant was great. The food was good but the best thing about it was watching the Greek dancers (theres a Robert De Niro look a like there). They were great dancers and danced on fire and held two big square table up in their mouths! They urged customers to join them to dance after their show. Its a must see - definatley a highlight of the holiday.
The stuffed mushrooms are delicious as are the steaks - makes a change from greek salads. Slow service at times.

Alexander's restaurant in the main square in Argostoli was so good, we ate there twice. The waiters are friendly, especially the Aussie waiter. The food is fantastic - you have to try the stuffed mushrooms and the beef stifado.
We visited Kefalonia in May and saw a leaflet for Alexanders in our apartment but ignored it until the second week, but wished we had tried it sooner. The staff were the best we had come across (although many restaurants had very good staff), especially Jon. Dancing, party tricks and a very good menu made for a wonderful evening. We can well recomend the vegetarian foods. BRILLIANT, amust try in our oppinion.
This really is a great restaurant to visit good food and friendly service lovely
people, a great atmosphere wonderful traditional Greek dancing and
entertainment we returned most evenings sometimes only for a drink and to
watch the dancing well worth a visit.
I went to Alexanders three times in my 2 week holiday (just returned last night). Ioannis, the head waiter who has moved over from Melbourne, was extremely friendly, as was Pedro (Albanian)and Chris (Greek). I found that on the 'Greek Nights', Cephalonians came to the restaurant specifically to enjoy their dancing - at one point the whole back row of the restaurant was filled with people waiting to dance, heir ages ranging from their mid 40s through to their 80s. That to me says how genuine the atmosphere is that 'Jonno' and the team have created - they have passion in what they do. I am thinking of booking another week before the end of the season just so go and say hello to the guys and eat their food - although I'm on my own there is no problem with just sitting, eating, watching and dancing! I would thoroughly recommend it.
The head waiter persevered with any queries and was very helpful and suave . i recommend the chicken souvlaki. Traditional Greek dancing was performed and a few tricks to entertain immensely! The taverna is also reasonably affordable and located in the charismatic square, which really comes alive in the late evening.
