Mermaid Taverna - (Restaurants in Sami)

Gina D           

We couldn't wait to return to Sami on our second visit to Kefalonia, and the 'Mermaid Taverna' was a must for our lunch! It is ideally situated on the harbour-front, with tables in the sun or shade. We found the food excellent - the Chicken Souvlaki was the best that I have tasted in Greece, and I have visited at least eight different islands! The Greek Salad is a meal in itself and makes a great accompaniment to the freshly cooked Kalamaris (no frozen squid rings in this Taverna!!) It is a family run concern - Mama does all the cooking herself , and the rest of the family give courteous, friendly service - Effi even remembered us from our visits last year! Do try the local red wine - sold by the kilo! - and spend a relaxing hour or two over an excellent lunch! We hope that everyone at the Mermaid has a good rest over the winter, and we look forward to seeing you all again on our return to Kefalonia soon! We also send our regards to Theodore, who has come to England to complete his studies at UCL!
