Galera - (Restaurants in Skala)

Chriss H          10/10

The Gallera has been our favourite restaurant in Kefalonia since our initial visit in 1998.  We were back for our fourth visit this year (late Aug- early Sept) and enjoyed many delicious meals there.

Annie, Aris and Eleni make you feel so incredibly welcome and special!  Theirs is a genuine welcome, and the food and service is of the highest quality.

We have celebrated a couple of special occasions whilst on holiday in Skala, and each time have chosen the Gallera as the only place to eat on those evenings.  This year we were celebrating our 22nd wedding anniversary (and they said it would never last!) and after a wonderful meal, Annie arrived with champagne cocktails!  Then there was the Metaxa.. need I go on?

Anyway, all joking apart, whenever I am feeling a bit fed up (like now) I imagine myself sitting at the lovely table that Aris used to reserve for us, up on the balcony, and feel a lot better just knowing that I will be back there just as soon as I can!

Annie, if you are reading this, thank you for giving us the opportunity to dine at such a beautiful restaurant, for such friendly staff and such a superb range of dishes!  We will definitely see you next summer!

With our very best wishes,

Chriss and Stephen

Day trip to Ithaca - (Kefalonia Excursions)

Chriss H          7/10

Went on a day trip to Ithaca at end of August.  Short stroll from Nine Muses to glass bottom b
oat moored opposite hotel.. Didn't know what to expect but we were pleasantly surprised.  The whole
day out (with Capt Vangelis) was a pleasure.  The stops en-route to Ithaca, and on the way back to
Scala were wonderful.  Stopping off at Vathi and then Kioni was lovely.  Want to try to seek out a
holiday which includes boat hire in Ithaca, coupled with a stay in Skala next year.
