Greeks know about cooking. Il destino proves that theory. Mediterranean menu prepared with the most pure products of Kefalonia. Service is really fast even in rush hour…We had greek salad and steak…We loved it. The owners and the staff are always ready to bring you anything you ask.

The night we ate here was the last night of the season................we were gutted as were hoping to visit at least a couple of times during out stay as it is that good. Rula and her staff go out of their way to make you feel so welcome. The restaurant is tastefully decorated and a cut above some of the... More

This used to be our favourite but it had slightly lost something...not certain wether it was because it was late September and we usually go in June that they were a little tired at the end of the season!

Some of the best Italian food I've ever eaten. If it was in London they would be queuing around the block. Went back twice. Reasonable prices, good house red. Not to be missed.

I had the most wonderful seafood pasta and my husband had a fillet steak. The food was excellent and the staff are amazing. We had the house red and it was the best we had had on holiday. When the bill arrived we were very surprised it was really good value for money. The restaurant is a cut above a... More

Visited for evening dinner for two. Restaurant is pleasantly situated with views of pine trees and the sea beyond. Great ambience here with beautifully decorated restaurant and quality table presentation. Ordered a shared garlic bread starter followed by 2 pasta mains. All were very good, the mains are on the large size though, so make sure you're hungry. The house... More

The Owner is a really lovely chatty lady, I was amazed to read someone say She was unfriendly! She spoke to us both times and We had never met... More

Il Destino has a great atmosphere and the decoration is really unusual. They have a big ceiling fan that rotates, which was perfect for a very warm evening. My family and I attended for dinner and we weren't disappointed. Even a basic margarita pizza was delicious! I had 'shrimps' (actually very large prawns) in spaghetti and it was soooo good!... More
