We have returned here four the last four years and have been given the warmest of welcome by Kostas, Georgia and family. This is undoubtedly the best, most authentic tavern in Katelios. The food is amazing, the service is Greek (and if you don't love that then it's not the place for you) and Kostas has become our Greek Godfather. The fact that many Greek people chose this restaurant as the place to eat simply illustrates that it is the best.
Relax into the holiday, chill out with Kostas and co, and savour the authentic taste of Greece.
We are just back home (Edinburgh, Scotland) from a very chilled and enjoyable week staying at the Poseidonia Villa, Katelios. We ate at The Lighthouse on three occassions. Each time we visited we received a friendly (though not over the top, thankfully) welcome. The food was always excellent, the ambience relaxed and the staff very helpful . If we return to Kefalonia we will definitely return to The Lighthouse. Keep up the high standards everyone!
Lovely place! Lovely food! Lovely Staff
Ate at the Lighthouse about 5 times during our stay and were never disappointed.
The best of the sea front Tavernas and would say that it is the best in Katelios. The food is great, nice olive dip with your bread and bread sticks. Good service even thoug they are busy they are really good and nice to you. Ate there lots and would do again, a must.
We have been visiting Katelios and the Lighthouse Taverna for 13 years. Over the years we have watched the business grow. In all that time we have never had a bad meal. Sometimes you have to wait a little while, but then that is probably because Macki is beating your chicken fillet to create a wonderful chicken schnitzel and after all you are on holiday and it is Greece so what is the hurry. The Taverna is very child friendly and if you do happen to have any really special requests Costas is only too pleased to accommodate if at all possible. If you have visited before and been disappointed - try again.
Probably the best fish in Katelios; and most other things besides. If you have to wait for your meal it is because it is being freshly cooked; and it will be worth waiting for. Makis' cooking will satisfy the hungriest diner. The restaurant is regularly used by the Greeks, many of whom come from afar, which must say something about its quality.
The Lighthouse gave us the one dodgy meal of our holiday. We may have ordered badly (pizza and chicken) but it was really not very good.
We just went here for omelets and had to wait a very long time. When they came, one was ok but the other was unbelieveably greasy. The cokes were very expensive compared to other places as well
Last September we went back to Katelios for our honeymoon as we enjoyed the people & the place so much. Of all the restaurants we have tried this was the best. Kostas & his family could not have been more friendly, accommodating and hospitable. The food was superb - and plenty of it! Mikas is happy to prepare any dish to your liking. There may be a slight delay if they are busy but we were happy with that as the food was always cooked fresh to order,the service was faultless & the standard of cleanliness was extremely high. They all worked very hard to maintain a high standard - and it shows.
The best restaurant in Katelios! Traditional Greek food and they do a great English brekkie!
Has improved immensely over the last few years. Well worth a visit particularly as the prices eem cheaoer than the others on that road.
at the bottom of the village, close to the kiosk, the first restaurant as you turn right into the main village street is the lighthouse, "o pharos". kostas or his wife georgia will serve you, kostas' brother makis will cook the food and their father, nikos will sit and sup**vise from a table with something to eat! on occassions kostas' young nephew will clear tables, carrying a smaller tray than his uncle but with equal skill. fish here is particularly good, lightly herbed and seasoned, fresh from the charcoal. nothing fancy, but good honest food, and the lemon potatoes mmmmm!
