Eat & Drink

Fiskardo is a picturesque and charming village located on the northern tip of Kefalonia, known for its Venetian architecture, colourful buildings, and beautiful waterfront. The village is a popular destination for tourists, and you can find a variety of restaurants and tavernas offering traditional Greek cuisine as well as international dishes.

Restaurants in Fiskardo often take advantage of the fresh, local ingredients available in the region, including seafood, olive oil, and local herbs. You can expect to find a range of dining options, from casual tavernas serving grilled fish and Greek salads to more upscale restaurants with a focus on Mediterranean flavours.


The best thing to do is to take a stroll around the harbour, chat to the taverna staff and browse a few menus to see what takes your fancy.

When ordering fresh fish do check the price as it is usually charged by the kilo and some types can be very expensive. You may find that you pay more to eat on the water front in Fiskardo but often the food is no different to those places set back from the water.

Tipping is not expected but most people do offer about 10%.

There are also some great alternatives to eating outside of Fiskardo in the villages and beaches in the north of the island.

On Saturday nights, 'Lord Falcon,' a Thai restaurant, draws a significant crowd, becoming one of the bustling hotspots. During the day, 'El Greco' serves coffee, and as night falls, it transforms into a lively and vibrant little bar.
