Food scene

Great views, slightly more sophisticated set-up than most places on island. Great for sunset cocktail followed by dinner. Need to reserve during high season.

Excellent taverna overlooking one of our favourite beaches, Avithos. Panos, the owner, has his own vineyard and winery and makes some excellent wines that have become well known across Greece and beyond.

Beautiful beach in lush Green Bay, but crowded in high-season and can be bit noisy with watersports etc which takes away from the charm of it's natural beauty. But if you are here off season, or don't mind the crowds, it is definitely worth visiting.

The picture postcard beach of Kefalonia. Very impressive colours but can be very dangerous if the waves are big with strong currents. Take care, especially with children. If you go early in the morning there is more chance of enjoying it when its calm.
