After spending a week trying various restaurants in Skala, we eventually found the Aquarius, unfortunately on our last evening (I wish we had found it on our first evening) After reading a most comprehensive Menu, including wines from around the world, I started with Prawns in Garlic ~ my taste buds opened up...we followed this with Duck a la Orange, cooked to perfection and presented as good as any restaurant we have visited in the UK and or the continent, (But then we are not the normal 'WELL DUN' ENGLISH . . you know the shoe Leather Type) washed down with a beautiful cold Rose wine. Our gourmet evening ended with a selection of Greek sweets . . we especially enjoyed the Kataifi, which at our request was slightly warmed and served with Greek yogurt.
Actually staying at the '9muses' complex, our first evening was conveiently spent in their AEOLOS restaurant, situated in front of the 9Muses Complex. I unfortunately ordered a main course which was not what I expected (should have asked ?) but my wife and two friends thoroughly enjoyed theirs, in fact we returned a further two evenings during our week in Skala. I did especially enjoy the Pork in a Honey & Apricot sauce and each time, we ordered for our Starter a plate of Greek dishes for two, but shared between the four of us as there was plenty and a good selection....see photo.
Excellant relaxed evening meal...good quality, friendly service and you must visit at least once to experience the 'Special' Toilets. Press the button and stand back in amazement.
Snack bar with a splendid VIEW !!! Perfect for a Mid-day snack and drink. We had Pizza's normally, washed down with a Black Rum Bundy on the day it rained or a Mythos when the sun was out (rained like hell on one of our days in May ~ don't normally need an excuse for a Bundy . . make sure the Coke/Pepsi is from a bottle though)
The girls (wives) were on the beach most days from mid morning, eventually joining us for lunch, returning after a cool drink and a snack to their sandy piece in the sun. Previous comments listed, dated 2004/2005 must really be ignored now, as we really thought the place was ideal for a simple mid-day brunch, it is after all, only a snack bar.
Enjoyed a light lunch here on a couple of occasions, found the staff very friendly and helpful. Try their 'real greek' Croquette Courgettes and Big Beans in a rich tomato & Garlic sauce . . followed by a slightly warm Kefaifi and ice cream . . absolutely tops ! Washed down with a glass of Mythos from the tap, not bottle.
First time to Kefalonia, Skala after fifteen years visiting KOS....we could not have choosen a more perfect location for a week chilling out. The Complex was wonderful, up at 0900hrs every morning for a dip on our own in the excellant pool, friendly staff, air con. rooms, TV for the UK News if you were interested ! ! Picture is from the pool area looking towards the beautiful appartments.
FIRST CHOICE . . FIRST CLASS . . what more need we say ?
