Kaliva - (Restaurants in Skala)

My husband Paul and I ate here twice, which is rare for us as we like to try somewhere different each night, especially as we were only in Kefalonia for a week.  However we enjoyed both the food and the entertainment, yes we have seen better greek dancing but this was just fun and entertaining and very tongue in cheek.  Judging from the reaction of the other customers, they enjoyed it too.  The waiter in glasses (or is he the owner?) was never ever rude to us, he does have a brusque manner and a dry sense of humour, but thats just his way - he was very patient and helpful with me as I have just started to learn Greek and seemed happy to bear with my attempts with a smile!  Thanks also to Paul for entertaining us with his singing and guitar playing on the two nights we were there, it was lovely to meet you and your partner (sorry we forgot to ask her name).  Hope you both had a great holiday and that you had a better journey home than your journey in!!

Captains House - (Accommodation in Skala)

My husband and I stayed here from 20 - 27 October and had a wonderful holiday.  Our room was clean and comfortable and continental breakfast as expected.  The location couldn't have been better, how lovely to sit on the verandah having breakfast watching the sun rise with relaxing music playing in the background - does it get any better?  The only criticism I could make, and its hardly a criticism at all, is that it would be great to have somewhere to make a cuppa during the day, just what you need after a full day excursion or a hard day on the beach!  Would definitely recommend this hotel,  but can't understand why Thomsons have doubled the price for the same week in 2006 though, so may go elsewhere next year, pity.
