This is a truly fabulous taverna on the beach. The food is simply delicious - fresh Bass, Bream, Calamari, stuffed peppers, and fried fish. The spicy cheese is more delicious than it sounds!

2 years ago when I was the first time in a Kefalonia, a guide recommend this place to me, but because we were located in Skala, which is 50 kilometers away we didn't visit this place. This year we were again in a Kefalonia but this time, we were located in Lixouri, so even if we usually do not eat... More

We read about this place on the plane in the travel magazine. It is a bit off the beaten track but well worth it. The smoked fish was amazing and the salad was so fresh. The staff are very friendly. It is very authentic.

This little tavern has been long a hidden gem for locals. In the last few years it got more popular with tourists. The fish is very fresh and of high quality cooked to perfection. We probably had the best grilled octopus during the whole 2 weeks we spent in Greece. One dish to avoid is the fava. In all fairness... More

As we spent our vacation for the third year in Kefalonia we decided to visit Spiaggia too as we had very positive experience from prior visits. At that time the location, the owner, the personnel, the service, the mood of the place everything was in place and we were super satisfied. So it was obvious to come back... Well what... More

We are lucky enough to live on Kefalonia and have visited Spiaggia many times. Today went for lunch with a friend who is on holiday and although the food was excellent as usual the service was appalling. Coffee cups were only half full and my hubands frappe had sugar when he had asked for none. Had to ask the waitress... More

Despite the amazing views over the bay we were disappointed with the service we had- the staff were very disorganised and we struggled to get them to take any notice of us! The food we had was good but all served at different times or not at all.... In the end had to go and ask at the bar for... More

This tavern is a hidden jewel. They serve fresh fish caught every day. Everything is delicious and the scenery is quite enjoyable. The service is great! I would definitely go back!
