Assos - (Resorts on Kefalonia)

Barry S           

We visted Assos last week (10th June 2003). We liked it very much. Probably the most tranquil village on the island with lots of character. After soaking up the atmosphere we sta on a bench opposite the harbour and took in the views - magic.

Fiskardo - (Resorts on Kefalonia)

Barry S           

Visted the town during the first week in June. It was much smaller than we expected and very quiet during the day. If you're on a budget beware, prices are between 30 and 50% higher than on the rest of the island. Quite pretty. If you're into boating you'll love it.

Myrtos Beach - (Beaches on Kefalonia)

Barry S           

As many others have said, the view from above is impressive. The beach itself is quite pretty but we were there at the begining of June and it was baking hot. The sun reflects off the white cliffs and it can become quite unbearable. We spent most of our time in the sea to keep cool.
We have been there, done that. Won't go again.

Petani Beach - (Beaches on Kefalonia)

A nice beach and not very crowded in the begining of June. Much more pleasant than Myrtos. Make sure that you take your jelly shoes though. The pebbles are quite uncomfortable.

Olive Tree - (Restaurants in Lourdas)

Not very impressed. The food was ok but we had much better. The waiters were not as friendly as those we found elsewhere and it lacked atmosphere.
We liked Diana's Taverna. We went twice. Great hostess, lovely atmosphere. Make a booking for the barbecue night. Sadly it does not seem to warrant a section on this site.

Dionysis Restaurant - (Restaurants in Lourdas)

We went twice. The first time was great. Nice food good service. The second time not so good. I had to send my mousakka back because it was cold in the middle.
A nice garden with lots of running water, nice atmosphere.
Typical menu, beef stifado, meat pie, lamb kleftiko etc.

Penolopes - (Restaurants in Lourdas)

Nice location, good food, great atmosphere.
The usual menu but always several specials to chose from. Plentiful portions and always hot.
Diana is a great hostess too.
The barbecue night is well worth a visit, eat as much as you want and the entertainers are very amusing. Great memories.
