I agree totally with some of the previous comments posted here. Butlers House portion size was quite small and personally I found that it wasn't that tasty either. I have on many occasions tasted much better at other restaurants/tavernas.We decided not to go back and we didn't. Many better restaurants in Lassi. Ionio for one.
We ate at Ionio 3 times, food and service was fantastic. Moussaka was the best I've ever had. Saganaki was absolutely delicious. Souvlaki great, I could go on with more of the things we ate but suffice to say they were all delicious. Portion sizes were good too. Nice setting, although it was on the main road, the restaurant was set up a bit higher and with the plants that they had planted along the front, you didn't see the road, just the very tops of peoples heads as they walked by and then over to the sea in the background. If and its probably not going to happened, we ever went back to Kefalonia we would definitely
go back here.
Just got back from a 2 week holiday here. First week great, as we used the nearby beach (daughter suffers from ear infections so pool was not an option for 1st week), water is crystal clear and lovely. 2nd week not so good started using pool, big notice board in reception stating that the pool is for residents of Silo only and outsiders are not welcome. Unfortunately they didn't enforce this and each day we had approx 12-15 Italian youths come in and take it over. They gave no thought to the residents who were already there and were allowed to be there. Kicking a football around (witnessed it actually hitting a lady, who was sitting at the pool bar at the time, on the back of her head with quite a whack), bombing in the pool, intimidating other pool users, using their lilo's in such a way that should you get in the way, tough. We got told to F"@* Off on more that one occasion and was told by another resident who had foreign language knowledge, that they were shouting out the same F.off but in Italian frequently and then laughing. We and others complain on more than one occasion but nothing was ever done. Complained to both the Owner and the Thomson rep. We went there because we thought it would be a reasonably quiet and relaxing place to go to, and with its own EXCLUSIVE pool. We was obviously wrong. We will NOT be going back. One nice thing though, they have some nice cats there of which there were 2 sets of kittens. They were all very friendly, which was nice ( mind you one of the male cats did do a poo on my son's bed, there we were at 12 midnight one evening washing the bed covers and drying them with the hair dryer provided, it was actually hilarious and gave us a nice stress release in the second week, it sounds weird I know but that's us!!!!). You can tell how bad it was when, after 5 days of this we were all wishing the days to pass so we could go home. Not the sort of thing you want to do when you have waited all year for your annual holiday!
We went with Panem Tours in Lassi. Absolutely fantastic. Our tour rep a lady called Irina I think! She was great, had lots of knowledge of Kefalonia of which she passed on. We went wine tasting, went to Drogarati Cave, Melissani Lake, Fiskado, Assos, Myrtos Beach, Sami and lots more. It was a great day and one word of advice, don't book up your excursions through the travel rep i.e. Thomson etc. Go out to the local ones in the resort where you will get the same excursions but for a lot less. At least a third to maybe half the price.
