Just back from a great 2 week holiday in Kefalonia, staying in Lassi, and I have to say The Olive Press was my favourite eating place on the island. I persuaded my boyfriend to eat here even though we had read a few reviews that claimed this taverna was 'average'. We found it to be 'excellent'. It was beautiful inside, the staff were very helpful and friendly, the food was fantastic and was very reasonably priced. I'd recommend the cocktails too. If you do decide to eat here, try and get a table on one of the terraces near the entrance.
My boyfriend and I enjoyed a few lovely meals in Sirtaki. We would say it is one of the best eating places in the resort.
My boyfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed a recent 2 week holiday in Lassi. Yes, Lassi is purpose built, but it has the best choice of good eating places, has excellent beaches and is the best place to stay to get around and see what the rest of the island has to offer. We hired a car and pretty much covered the island in 3 days. Make sure you stay in good accomodation if you do stay in Lassi. The hotels and apartments near the main road look awful. We stayed at the San Lorenzo Village and thought it was first class.
We enjoyed a few excellent meals in this place and we were never bothered by mosquitos at all. It is a great place to eat if you want some peace and quiet throughout your meal and a lovely setting.
