This restaurant in Agia Efimia is the best in Cephalonia. It has stunning views from the terrace to Ithaca. There's also a cafe/bar and rooms to let. It was the restaurant of choice for the Captain Correlli crew but is still inexpensive and serves up honest home cooking with very fresh ingredients.

Fiskardo is a small (by British standards) local fishing port on the northern point of Kefalonia. With good restaurants and a good-quality chandlers at the far end of the port, it's very easy to spend a day relaxing there. The restaurants on the whole serve excellent traditional Greek and Kefalonian dishes.
Fiskardo is very popular in August, and is quietest at the beginning and end of the season. There's plenty to do, and plenty of seats if you just want to sit. There are also boats to nip across to Ithaka for some calamari, and a ferry to take you to the nearby islands.
It’s my favourite place in Kefalonia - I have often found myself spending a whole day there watching the world go by, enjoying breakfast, lunch and dinner with a few Mythos in between.
50km north of Argostoli. Catch a bus from there, or a ferry from Lefkada or Ithaki. N.B: The bus drops you off in a carpark. Walk down the steps to the left of the church and go straight ahead to get into the town.
Cephalonia is a dream: permanently surrounded by low clouds on the horizon, you feel as if you are suspended in the air, on an island floating in heaven. The coastline is breathtaking and the northern coast is perhaps the most fantastic: sounds pretentious, but driving, walking, biking the northern coastline is a transcendental experience.
