Casa de Blue Restaurant - (Restaurants in Lourdas)

Karl &           

This was the only disappointment during our whole trip to Kefalonia. I know that everybody is entitled to their own opinion, but I fail to understand how anybody can give this place anything more than a 1/10 rating. We both enjoy our food and were appalled at the quality, quantity and presentation. To elaborate, I had a swordfish steak that was the size of a pineapple ring and was served burnt, cold chips, (which I am sure came from the new LIDL near Argostoli) and a type of home made coleslaw that smelt like it had been made some days earlier. My girlfriend ordered sole, which came covered in greasy batter the same limp cold frozen chips and a salad where the lettuce had started to decompose. We complained bitterly about the food, but were told that we would still have to pay. Whilst warning other couples at our hotel, we found three couples that had experienced equally bad food. I suppose that if you normally eat economy burgers and frozen pizza, this place may appeal, but for anybody who appreciates food, avoid this place like the plague and try one of the many other tavernas around who offer home cooked food and at lower prices too.

Greek Islands - (Restaurants in Lourdas)

Karl &  (July 29, 2004)         

We only found this taverna on our last night, otherwise we would have come back several times as the food was the best we experienced in Lourdas. The service was also very good and we were not harassed to leave even though we were busy chatting to the family on the next table. All the food was served freshly prepared and hot. Overall good food and friendly service, recommended.

Maria Anna Hotel - (Accommodation in Lourdas)

Karl &           

We have just returned from a fantastic week at the Maria Anna Hotel. We would like to thank both Lana and Ross for making our stay such a pleasure. The pool was a good size and not too crowded. the rooms are small and would certainly benefit from a ceiling fan, as they do get very hot at night. We enjoyed all the food we had and a different meal of the day is described on a blackboard in reception each day at very reasonable prices. The rooms were cleaned on a daily basis. The atmosphere is very friendly, and as all the guests are English, making friends was very easy. The relaxed setting of the pool bar was enjoyed by several guests from neighbouring apartments, but at no time was it overcrowded or rowdy. Please disregard comments from last year, as all the staff and owners are new. If we were to return to Loudas, we would not hesitate to choose the Maria Anna...Recommended.
