This restaurant really is a little oasis in Skala. It has inside areas to dine and a lovely garden area at the back. The menu here is very extensive, so something for everyone. The staff are so, so friendly, polite, attentive and efficient. My husband was unable to finish his dish as it was a little too peppery for his... More

We choose the Flamingo because the menu looked interesting and we weren't disappointed. The food was attractively presented and tasty my main course of fish was succulent and cooked to perfection. My starter and dessert... More

Great food, lovely atmosphere. Go through to the back where they have an outside garden a area where you can eat. Extremely reasonable prices. Welcoming staff and the homemade licquor they give you after the meal was out of this world. Just a shame they didn't sell it in bottles ha ha. Lovely!

Great location at the start of the main road. Staff were friendly and very professional. Very varied choice on the menu and lots of chicken dishes along with traditional Greek food. The Kefalonian meat pie was superb but so were all the other meals we had House wine (red) was perfectly drinkable It was one of our favourite eating places... More

We visited this friendly restaurant on the last evening of our holiday, taking a break from the hotel half board option. What a delightful surprise, the food was fabulous. We started with Tzadsiki and pita bread followed by a delicious prawn souvlaki and sole. For pudding we had apple pie. Everything was delicious and the service, excellent.

Stayed in Skala end of September and visited Flamingo twice. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The food was very good and enjoyed by both of us. The kephalonian pie was lovely, the first time I have tried it. All in all very good and will definitely visit again if I visit Skala again.
