We've been spioled by some of the eateries we've found in kefalonia. Unfortunately, this place didn't quite measure up. We found the food to be average, which was a contrast to what we'd come to expect.

Visited Kalafatis several times in the past, most recently in September 16, it has not changed much from previous visits, because it has everything right. The views over the Lagoon are fabulous, the food is authentic Greek.and very good value for money, the service was and still is second to none, with Vangelis, our waiter this time making us feel...

While visiting the lovely Greek island of Kefallonia on a cruise we called into the main port of Argostoli. After a lovely wander through the town we were enjoying a refreshing beer when I noticed a seafood retailer across the street. Seeing it was close to lunch time we checked the place out, there was a great display of local... More

We have visited this restaurant twice and formed the same opinion both times, even though most of the staff were different on the second visit. I can't fault the food or the location - every dish I had was lovely and also very generous portions too. The location is excellent, literally a couple of feet from the sea with a... More

We stopped here for lunch because of the views and we were not disappointed. We sat right by the sea and watched the waves - we even saw a few turtles. The location was absolutely fantastic. The service was also very friendly so will not fault that at all. The food however was not great. We just fancied basic kind... More

Really lovely food here, and you get to eat it in next to the argostoli harbour with turtles swimming literally a meter from your table. Loved it.

Went here for an early evening meal after a long walk. I love sea food and was not disappointed with the mixed grilled fish. Swordfish, squid, octopus, sardines and whitebait. Lovely. All while watching turtles swim by. Staff were great - good service. Would recommend.

We had drinks and lunch at Kalafatis several times when we were in Argostoli. The staff were friendly, particularly Vangelis. It was an ideal location for watching the fish and the turtles! Food was good; we had the whitebait, greek salad, omelettes, stuffed peppers and a variety of drinks. All very good standard. Would certainly recommend if you're in Argostoli.

Love this place - it is traditional and in the best place to watch the fish and turtles who come up and see the customers esp when bread is thrown in the water ... We had chicken svelaki and the pork dishes .. Good size portions! Been three times now and never fails to replenish the soul!

My boyfriend and I stopped here for lunch one afternoon as it had a lovely port side setting and a good variety of food to choose from. We shared a Greek salad and some grilled vegetables and halloumi and were delighted by how fresh all of the ingredients were. Very simple dishes cooked brilliantly well. Definitely worth a try.
