Have just returned from 2 weeks holiday staying at Paspalis Hotel which was excellent. However, disappointed with the attitude of some restaurants, Piano 2 (very loud piano and very salty food) and La Luna (advertised Porterhouse Steak which turned out to be grilled pork) we complained in both restaurants and their attitude was "take it or leave it". Star restaurant has got to be SOCRATES - we found this 3 days before the end of our holiday and ate there for the last 3 nights. Cook is mom (Rebecca), waited on by son Dimitri and daughter Anastia. Lovely people, fabulous food and a very romantic setting for meals. Restaurant situated just off main square. You will not be dissapointed. We would return to Kefalonia but much prefer Skiathos and Thassos for friendliness.
Order Porterhouse Steak and got dried up pork steak. Pointed out to waiter that the order was wrong and he just didn't want to know.
Fabulous, Fabulous, Fabulous. Our first visit to Kefalonia and so we tried the infamous Pines 2 first - what a dissapointment. We were thoroughly disheatened with eating out our first week. Then we found Socrates and didn't eat anywhere else after that. The welcome you receive is wonderful and so friendly. We noticed the same people eating there every night so we knew we were not on our own in thinking this is the best place in Skala. Just try it!
