Set on Jerusalem beach in the north of Kefalonia, Oddy's (that's what the locals call it) is a great place for lunch. Oddy's mom does the cooking and it's all good. The best bread stuffed with olives I have ever tasted

Lovely lovely owner and staff but honestly, the food is decidedly average. Typical rustic homemade taverna food but not really much better than others around and not particularly much worst, so hence average. What does set it apart if the family that run it. They are incredibly friendly and you order from what you see. Shame the giant beans were... More

Our taxi driver recommended this restaurant to us and so glad he did. Lovely quiet beach and the taverna was like going back in time. Food excellent which you went inside to see what had been cooked that day. Home made stuffed bread was amazing. We have been going to Fiscardo for years but never been to Jerusalem beach before....

Great atmosphere, go into the kitchen to see what is ready for the day.Don't be shy! The food is great 'Mother' prepares some of the tastiest Greek food we have tasted. The vegetable dishes are to die for. Wonderful to just walk up from the beach for a tasty lunch under the vines or fig tree. Bre careful portion sizes... More

We indulged ourselves here by ordering far too much but all the dishes were too good to resist. The Stuffed bread was amazing along with the King Prawns, and Calamari. We were taken inside to the kitchen to look and choose from all the dishes "Mama" had cooked that day. The bar also boasts a varied wine list including Cloudy... More

Ate here a few times while enjoying relaxed days on the beach. There is no waiter service for food as diners have to go inside and choose what to eat from the daily offerings on show inside. Food is served from big trays - a bit like being back at school. The food was delicious but we found eating that... More

Our fourth year to Fiskardo and more visits to this wonderful taverna. We love the food here and dream of the fresh tomatoes picked from their garden, along with the peppers and aubergines, spinach and horta. The family run taverna is relaxed and friendly with mum and daughter taking great pride in their food. Son is front of house and... More

Had a delightfully enjoyable evening with 4 girlfriends here. We had giant beans, tzaziki, stuffed artichoke, stuffed tomato and pepper, pork with potatoes, Oddy's special stuffed bread and Greek salad. A real feast and accompanied by large carafe of rosé wine. Make sure you visit when near Fiscardo and it's amazing. Oddy is a great guy and character, friendly chatty... More

Lovely shaded dining area under vines and figs. Fabulous fresh home cooked food. All very relaxed and laid back in typical Greek style. Wonderful, a must if visiting Jerousalim Beach.
