Mi Abeli Restaurant - (Restaurants in Skala)

Fi N           

Not sure why this restaurant gets a 10 /10 ... centrally placed but very tourist focussed food.  Good if you want euro food with chips.  Pleasant enough staff but our food was very average.  Fish platter was done in breadcrumbs and completely overcooked.  Feta was average ... would not go back - too many other more traditional restaurants with superior food.

Even to a couple of experienced foodies, the food was really excellent here .... traditional Greek food extremely well cooked.  Fabulous fresh fish ... ask for a recommendation to get the best.  I wanted to try the whitebait but was told that they did not have it is it was not very good that week as the sholes were off Africa but would be better the following week - how great that they know their food !  We ate Stiffado even though it is a winter dish in Greece and it was outstanding !!   Gorgeous creamy Feta with a tiny bite to it and the stuffed tomatoes were really delicious with lots of depth of flavour.  The Sea Bream was unbelievably fresh and beautifully cooked in its own juices.  It is a 4 minute walk to the restaurant along the beach and it can look quiet but it is really worth a trip - why not try it for lunch and then you can always go back later as we did several times !!   PS the house dry rose is very good for a local wine and very very drinkable

Good fresh traditional Greek food with fresh fish and pleasant service.  Food very fresh and was full of locals when we were there. 

Gourgouris Grill - (Restaurants in Skala)

this really deserved far above 4 / 10 .... great honest local food ... not for those who are after euro food and chips but those who want traditional fare from the grill.  very tastly lamb chops and the veal was delicious.  excellent greek salad with creamy feta ... little tang to it ... and a fabulous house rose wine , very drinkable.  they do a very good and highly garlicky taziki which is actually really good as a side dish to the souvlaki and in fact all of the grilled meats.  family run business with a high level of greek clientele ... we sat next to the local priests which is always a good recommendation !!  value for money !

Anti Samos Beach - (Beaches on Kefalonia)

Fi N           

pretty location but highly overcrowded with poor sand and lots of stones.  beach bar very limited with excessive quantites of wasps so pointless in trying to eat a relaxed snack and totally overpriced as well ... captive audience !!  we did not even bother to stay and went back to our usual beach !
