Flamingo - (Restaurants in Skala)

Mark M           

Good service. Don't keep you waiting at your table avoiding your attention like some of the other restaurants. Food was good, one of the fewer places to serve Dolmades as a main meal, much to my girlfriends delight. Better looking waitresses than the other restuarants! Can be a little pricey, depending on what you have.

Pines Too - (Bars in Skala)

Mark M  (July 17, 2003)         

Not a great selection of food, not many greek dishes. What makes this restaurant though is the location. If you get a table along the right side you get a great view of the moon rising and the reflection on the water. Live music from the greek/french/irish/ Nikos is a nice touch but can get a bit annoying if you go there more than twice (same songs).

Old Village Restaurant - (Restaurants in Skala)

Mark M           

A bit pricey and waiters seem to try to get you to spend more money by suggesting extras like salads etc. Not great service but a nice enough restaurant. Smallish portions but was nice nonetheless.

Mi Abeli Restaurant - (Restaurants in Skala)

Mark M           

Good prices but reflected in the quality of the food I thought. Good service. I noticed they do kids sizes for any meal.

Captains Bar - (Bars in Skala)

Mark M           

Excellent bar. Great service from the staff. Not great prices but same as everywhere else. Ideal if you're staying opposite in the Captains House Hotel like myself. If you're British then this is one of the better bars in Skala.

Skala Beach - (Beaches on Kefalonia)

Mark M           

Lovely beach, fairly quiet (for such a popular beach) and nicely spaced out. Not sandy but found this better as there was no need to keep rubbing sand off all the time. Hurts your feet a bit getting in and out of the water, due to the pebbles, but so what, be quick, it helps. Lovely clear, calm water. Good choice of watersports without interfearing with sunbathers and swimmers. Popular with Greeks too. Shame there doesn't seem to be anyone selling drinks, or anything for that matter, though I expect that's to encourage people to go to the restaurants. Not always good for the pockets, or the physique!
