Ate here 2 years ago and the standard of food has not changed thankfully. Portion sizes are generous and the service is good from the friendly and knowledgeable staff. We had a meat dish to share for 2 people but we shared between 3 people as it was huge! It consisted of chicken, pork, sausage, shrimps, potatoes, salad, tzatiki and... More

This was my 1st experience of this restaurant and I was very pleasantly satisfied with the occasion. I chose the drunken liver main, and my partner had the sea bass, the fish was served on a plate half the size of the table, it was a whale of a fish and perfectly cooked and presented, I thoroughly enjoyed the liver...

What better way to end a rainy day in Kefalonia? - The Olive Lounge. I can't imagine how fab this restaurant would be on a warm sunny evening overlooking the Ionian Sea from their terrace. We couldn't have been made more welcome by all of the staff. I had the grilled octopus and my wife had the unusually named drunken... More

High on my eating out list. Very popular with locals and that speaks volumes. I can't see anyone being disappointed if you choose to eat here.

Visited on the off chance they would have a table after hearing how nice it was. We were lucky and I have got to say we were not disappointed the food was gorgeous. It was so good we booked again for our final night and the 2nd visit was just as good. Excellent staff and service too.

We enjoyed dining here several times. The food is just fabulous! Can highly recommend it. The staff are very smiley, and welcoming and in spite of being very busy (packed every night we dined, pre booking may be advised but accomodated us without and we only had a short wait sitting at the bar). A must eatery not to be... More

This restaurant has a wonderful ambience, unequalled views across the southern side of Kefalonia with a great view of Zakynthos across the channel. The food is some of the best available on the island and the staff are extremely professional and incredibly friendly at the same time. I have eaten there many times, and the whole experience is beyond compare.... More
