A guide to the best restaurants in Kefalos

For a small town, Kefalos has a vast array of eateries to choose from. Walking around both the winding streets of the old town area and the coastal region will lead you to dozens of small tavernas typical of holidays to Greece. The most popular dishes here are from authentic Greek menus, but you’ll also be able to find British pubs, Italian restaurants and even a spot for a Japanese meal. Here are some of the town’s top restaurants to dine in on your holiday.

Fresh fish caught daily at Camel Restaurant

Overlooking Kamari Bay, this seafood restaurant serves up delicious selections of fresh fish that were caught that very morning. You can try their fish of the day by itself or on top of their incredible pastas. One of the most popular dishes here is the fried octopus, a must try for any visitor to the Camel Restaurant.

Huge variety at Hub's Restaurant

Massive portions at Hippocrates

Hope you’re hungry, as Hippocrates is known for serving generous portions. With plenty to choose from on the menu you can go the traditional Greek route and try their kleftiko, slow roasted lamb, or something a bit easier to pronounce like pork chops, ribs or steak.
