9 of the Best Restaurants In Kefalonia For Families

Meal times with kids can be stressful but in Greece, the restaurants are very welcoming to families – you can be sure to find something in most restaurants you visit in Kefalonia. However, I’ve put together this article on some of our favourite restaurants in Kefalonia for families.

Here are a few of our favourite family restaurants in Kefalonia. Let us know what you think!

Best Restaurants In Kefalonia For Families

Elli’s Restaurant

Elli’s Restaurant is one of the best restaurants in Fiskardo, thanks to its seafront tables that situate you right on the beach. Not only do you get incredible views of the ocean, but while you wait for your traditional Greek dishes, your kids can splash about in the shallows and get out the last of their energy. 

Address: Elli’s Restaurant, Fiskardo 280 84, Greece

Captain Nikolas

In Kefalonia’s southwest, near Vatsa Beach, is family-run taverna Captain Nikolas that serves homemade food with ingredients from their very own vegetable garden. Your kids can take a wander through the garden and see where their dinner was made before running around in the kid’s play area while mum and dad sip on a glass of wine or two.

Address: Vatsa, Lixouri, Kefalonia, Greece


One of the best restaurants in Skala, Kefalonia, is Flamingo which has indoor and outdoor seating, with the latter giving impeccable views of the Mediterranean sea. Although Flamingo serves traditional Greek food, there should be something on the menu that your little ones will enjoy, and if all else fails, you can always resort to their ice cream and fruit dessert. 

Address: Skala 280 86, Greece

Kyani Akti

Many people will agree that one of the best restaurants in Argostoli, Kefalonia, is Kyani Akti, a family-run restaurant that sits on a wooden pier along the Argostoli waterfront. The ingredients at Kyani Akti are local and fresh, and if you’re lucky, you may even see a turtle in the waters down below. 

Address: Ι Metaxa Street Ι. Μεταξά, Argostoli 281 00, Greece

Kastro Cafe

You can find a wonderful and inexpensive cafe serving great traditional Greek food beside Saint George’s Castle near Peratata. The Kastro Cafe, which has stunning views of Kefalonia, is the perfect place for a relaxing and delicious meal that you can finish off with a slice of homemade cheesecake.

Address: Κάστρο 281 00, Greece

Alati All-Day Bar and Restaurant

If you’re after a restaurant with a beautiful sunset view (I recommend booking if so), then look no further than the Alati All-Day Bar and Restaurant. Most people initially head to Alati for the view, but once they try the food, they go back time and time again. There is a small beach down below, perfect for toddlers or just a quiet place to relax!

Address: Κεφαλονιά Παραλία Αλατιές, 280 84, Greece


Yet another beautiful Greek restaurant with an incredible view of the ocean is Anemos in Skala. Much like other restaurants on the island, Anemos serves up traditional Greek food that will leave your tastebuds wanting more. 

Address: Kaminia beach, Σκάλα Παραλία καμινια, 280 86, Greece

Spiros Family Taverna

Opposite the quayside in Adia Efimia is the Spiros Family Taverna which has beautiful views of the water and plenty of seating for families with young children. Each Saturday night, you can enjoy some live Greek music that the restaurant organises while enjoying Greek and international dishes.

Address: Harbor front, Ag. Effimia 280 81, Greece

Kefalonia Antonello’s Grill

The Kefalonia Antonello’s Grill is a great option for families spending the day at Xi Beach. The restaurant is a short distance from the seaside, but its prices and food are unbeatable.
