Visted Aridas Palace again in June 2015. Great place to eat, excellent food, lovely relaxcing atmosphere and views. Well worth a visit if you are on Lourdas Beach. Thanks to friendly staff.. See you in September 2015.
Have just returned from Lourdes after 2 weeks of sunshine ate out at a few diferent resturants then remembered eating at the Aridas Palace the year before went back and spent the rest of our Holiday eating there fabulous food excellent family run restaraunt would highly recommend anyone Holidaying at Lourdes must try this restraunt few tears when we had to leave as you are made to feel so welcome
Really nice place to sit and enjoy good value greek food in a relaxed family atmosphere. Spiros the chef / owner is a tru gem,on an island of gems. In the evening watch the sun set either in the restaurnt area or bar. Looking forward to returning yet again next week. Try the Keaflonian meat pie - my personal favourite. If you are lucky one of his sons may be playing traditional greek guitar, which is both enchanting and magical.
Just returned from Kefalonia in June 2010. Again we visited Aridas Palace in Lourdas. The food and service is really good. We had sea bass (a whole large sea bass) and sole stuffed with spinach and cheese, both dishes were truly delicious. We enjoyed our lunch with a glass of wine, looking out at the wonderful views across Lourdas bay and up to the mountains. Aridas Palace is certainly worth a visit. Like us you will become a regular visitor.
We have been to Lourdes for the last thee years and recommend Aridas Palace for excellent food and plenty of it. Spiros and his sister Maria are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. As I'm a coeliac and mentioned it to Spiros on our first visit he prepared all my food with out Gluten and Wheat. The following year he remembered my condition and bought in food specially for me which I thought was very kind. Next year, 2010, we will be staying his apartments. Can't wait.
We have holidayed in Kefalonia three times and on each occasion dined at the Aridas Palace. The food is plentiful, of a high standard, and always served with a huge side salad. The service is excellent and the walnut cake is divine! I would recommend this place for its delicious food and friendly service without hesitation.
