Just found this site having visited Kefalonia many times. I was shocked to read the previous comments from Martin, as I have just returned from Scala and had many meals at the Scandinavia (all of them wonderful). The Scandinavia caters for everyones needs, serving Greek Specialities like Stifado, Stamnaki and Kefalonia Meat Pie to name just a few. They also cater for children (a lot of them will only eat fish fingers etc). All I can say to Martin is if you don't have children, don't like to hear the news on tv sometimes, don't like beer and don't enjoy the music at night try SAGA holidays they have some really nice peaceful holidays for the over 50's. Better still why not take some tins in your luggage next time, then you can stay in your apartment and eat! To everyone else who reads this I say read everyone else's comments and I mean everyone's, there is not a bad word from anyone else, and I can personally vouch for the great standard of food and 'true Greek hospitality'
Went to Kefalonia this May for our 13th time, and as usual ate most of our meals at the Scandinavia - we've tried the rest, and now eat at the best. They have a fantastic menu, and as the previous posting says you could eat a different meal each day and still have dishes you have not tried. I particularly like the Pork Steak, Beef Stifado and Stamnaki, Karen's favourite are the home made pizzas and the chicken curry which although not as hot as at home is extremely tasty!
Like Stephanie I find it hard to understand Martin's view of the Restaurant. You will find as many authentic Greek dishes at the Scandinavia as anywhere else, on top of that they cater for children and their likes and I've never eaten in a Restaurant that didn't offer a selection of Beers (the Scandinavia's is particularly good). I wonder if Martin did go to the Scandinavia at all, in his posting he keeps calling it the Scandinavian which is NOT its name. We will be back in September and eating authentic Greek meals, receiving true Greek hospitality and having some great meals AT THE SCANDINAVIA.
Food was ok when it arrived (I waited for over one hour). Menu was quite poor, there was nothing my son fancied at all (I have to admit that he is quite a 'picky' eater but there are other Restaurants which offer better selection, especially for children). The Reastaurant is also off the main drag (I do like to 'people watch').
It is a new Restuarant so perhaps it will improve?
